  [Art. IV,1 IPO = § 7 IPM] IV. Now altho it may be easily perceiv'd by the preceding general Rule, who they are that are to be restor'd, and in what measure, yet the Parties were willing at the Instance of certain Persons, to mention some other Causes of the greatest Importance, in the following manner; so that they who are not expresly, or not at all nam'd or retrench'd, are not therefore reckon'd to be omitted or excluded.  
  [Art. IV,2 IPO ± § 10 IPM] The Cause of the Palatine House has first of all been discuss'd by the Assembly of Osnabrug and Munster; so that the Contest which has been so long depending, has been terminated in the following manner.

  [Art. IV,28 IPO ← § 35 IPM] 26.

And if Debtors have extorted from Creditors, by Force or Fear, their Bonds and Obligations, they shall be all restor'd; the Actions grounded thereupon remaining in full score.  
  [Art. IV,47-48 IPO = § 37(1)-(2) IPM] 45. If Debts on account of Purchase, Sale, or annual Revenues, and others of what name soever, have been extorted by Violence out of spite and malice of the Creditors, by either of the Parties engag'd in War, there shall be no Execution decreed against the Debtors, who shall alledg and offer to prove that Violence has really been done them, and that they have really and indeed paid; provided those Exceptions shall not have been decided after a full Hearing of the Cause. 46. The Suits which shall commence upon that score, shall be terminated in the space of two Years, reckoning from the Day of the Publication of the Peace, on pain of perpetual Silence in the case, to be enjoin'd contumacious Debtors; but the Suits hitherto commenc'd against them upon that account, together with the Transactions and Promises made for the future Restitution to Creditors, shall be suppress'd and abolish'd; saving nevertheless the Sums of Mony that have been paid bona fide for others during the War, to avert the greatest Dangers and Damages wherewith they were menac'd.  
  [Art. IV,49 IPO = § 38 IPM] 47. The Sentences pronounc'd in time of War touching Matters purely Secular (if the Defect of the Process do not evidently appear, of if it cannot be made out presently) shall not be altogether null, but shall be suspended and ineffectual, until the Evidences and Proofs (if either Party demands to have them revis'd within six Months after the Conclusion of the Peace) be review'd and examin'd in good and due Form, before competent Judges, in the ordinary or extraordinary manner us'd in the Empire: and thus Sentences shall be confirm'd or corrected, or, in case of Nullity, totally revers'd and made void.  
  [Art. IV,50 IPO = § 39 IPM] 48. And altho since the Year 1618. some Fiefs, whether royal or private, have not been renew'd, nor Homage paid in the mean while in name of the true Proprietors; yet that shall not turn to the prejudice of any one whatsoever: but the time for demanding the Investiture thereof, shall commence from the Day of the Conclusion of the Peace.  
  [Art. IV,51 IPO = § 40 IPM] 49. In fine, all and every one, as well Officers and Soldiers, as Counsellors and Judges, Civil and Ecclesiastical, of what Name and Condition soever they be, who have lifted themselves on either side, and sought for them or for their Allies and Adherents, whether with the Sword or with the Pen, from the highest to the lowest, without any difference or exception, together with their Wives, Children, Heirs, Successors and Servants, shall be resettled on both sides, as well with regard to their Persons as Goods, in the same state of Life, Reputation and Honour, Conscience and Liberty, Rights and Privileges, which they enjoy'd or could have enjoy'd before the said Commotions: and no hurt shall be done to their Persons or Goods upon that score, nor any Action or Pretext of Action commenc'd or laid against them; and far less shall they suffer any Punishment or Damage under any pretext whatsoever. All which things shall have their full and entire Effect absolutely, with regard to such as are not Subjects or Vassals to his Imperial Majesty, or to the House of Austria.  
  [Art. IV,52 IPO = § 41 IPM] 50. And as for those who are hereditary Subjects and Vassals to the Emperor and the House of Austria, they shall truly enjoy the same Amnesty as to their Persons, Life, Honour, and Conscience; and shall have liberty to return to their Country, on condition that they behave themselves according to the Laws in use in the said Kingdoms and Provinces.  
  [Art. IV,53 IPO ± § 42 IPM] 51. As to what concerns their Goods, if they have been lost by Confiscation, or in any other manner, before the Owners declar'd for Sweden or France (altho the Swedish Plenipotentiaries insisted very vigorously and long that they should be restor'd, yet) they shall remain lost, and confiscated for the Benefit of those who at present possess them; nothing being to be prescrib'd to his Imperial Majesty in this matter, nor otherwise transacted, because of the constant Contradiction of the Imperialists; and the States not having judg'd it for the Service of the Emperor to continue the War upon that score only.  
  [Art. IV,54 IPO ± § 43 IPM] 52. However the Goods which have been taken from them afterwards, for having taken up Arms for Sweden or France, against the Emperor and the House of Austria, shall be restor'd to them in the same Condition they are at present; yet without any Reparation for the Fruits consum'd, and the Expences and Damages occasion'd.  
  [Art. IV,55 IPO = § 44 IPM] 53. For the rest, if Creditors or their Heirs professing the Augsburg Religion, Subjects of the Kingdom of Bohemia, or of any other of the Emperor's Hereditary Provinces, commence a Suit upon private Pretensions, supposing them to have any, Right and Justice shall be done them as well as to the Roman Catholicks.  
  [Art. IV,56 IPO = § 45 IPM] 54. Nevertheless, from this general Restitution shall be excepted such things as cannot be restor'd or represented, such as Movables, Things Personal, Fruits consum'd, Things destroy'd by Authority of the Parties engag'd in War, as also publick and private, sacred and profane Edifices, which have either been thrown down, or converted to other Uses for the publick Safety; as well as publick and private Pledges, which, upon a prospect of Hostility, have either been confiscated or legally sold, or voluntarily given away.  
  [Art. IV,57 IPO = § 46 IPM] 55. And forasmuch as the Affair concerning the Succession of Juliers might for the future excite great Troubles among the interested, if they were not prevented; it is therefore agreed, That it shall be terminated without delay after the Peace is concluded, either by an ordinary Procedure before his Imperial Majesty, or by an amicable Accomodation, or by some other legal Method.
