The peasant war of 1626 in Upper Austria was one of the three peaks of popular resistance against the Habsburg Counter-Reformation. This chapter focuses on the iconography of the revolt. Practically all printed accounts, both visual and textual, were published beyond the Habsburg territories. Nevertheless, these prints largely shaped the image of a “peasant war.” The chapter also highlights the commemorative iconography that emerged after the violent repression of the uprising, an iconography that countered the government’s policy of damnatio memoriae.
