The cultural transferral processes of ancient military theory in the context of late humanistic culture of scholarship are disclosedin the reacquisition of ancient tactical and strategic teaching traditions. Generally emphasis is placed on Justus Lipsius in this case an abundance of further theorists and texts are included: such as Claude Saumaise, Gabriel Naud, Henri de Rohan and Richelieu. This work applies a revisionist structure by correcting the foreshortenings of the Oestreich school with regard to the embedding of the military reform of the House of Orange in the political neo-stoicism and the thesis of social disciplining, as well as the interpretation of the military revolution.
