74 Supported by this opposition movement Maurice of Orange, the Stadholder of five of the seven provinces of the Republic and the most important advocate of a more militant foreign policy, had Oldenbarnevelt arrested in August 1618 and executed as a traitor the following year. The Synod of Dordrecht (Dord), an assembly of Dutch divines (November 1618- May 1619), also attended by the representatives of a number of foreign reformed churches (for example England, Scotland, the Palatinate, some Swiss cantons, and Bremen), sealed the triumph of the war party's theological wing, the strictly Calvinist Counter-Remonstrants, over the more liberal Remonstrants who, inspired by Arminius, had sought Oldenbarnevelt's protection.

Bavaria did not belong to the exclusive circle of prince electors, and thus remained a second-rate power according to the offical hierarchical order. However, if Maximilian of Bavaria (1598-1651) could manage, by taking a radical Catholic stance, to become the spokesman for all those, mostly ecclesiastical, Catholic princes who either felt threatened by their Protestant neighbours or were inclined to call for a Catholic 'roll-back', his influence would greatly increase.
