AbstractProtracted conflicts are the result of an ideological or political discrepancy within a society that can't be resolved with the usual means of medieval policy. Subsequently, such conflicts are marked by different aspirations, war phases, and a whole series of agreements on the verge of a satisfactory solution. Their irresolvable nature evokes also the formation of new approaches. This accounts especially for the Roman Empire under the challenging dominion of the latter Luxemburg dynasts. The double section therefore focuses on the communicative and idiomatical strategies, agents and turning points of their constant political stress field.
