I648 is a key date in European history. Representatives of nearly every European country gathered in Münster and Ösnabrück to negotiate a peace that would indeed, on October 24, bring the Thirty Years War to an end. Such a gathering was itself a European « first ». It seems appropriate therefore to see how this was reported in Renaudot’s La Gazette. He could rely on the networks of Mazarin, who backed him, and on correspondents in Germany. Over the years, he had fairly regularly reported on the progress of the pace negotiations. In fact, La Gazette amply covered news of battles, preferably French victories, and peace negotiations were under-reported ; this itelf is revelatory of what was considered news-worthy in the mid-17th century.
