19. They did? How and whom?

They were the same religion at the time, the Avignon Papacy and the multipopes were in the future and they were both Catholic countries..

Thirty Years war maybe?

We also have to separate systemic and proximal causes. Eliminating poverty, trribalism and colonial remnants in the ME may eventually make the region more peaceful, by making the ground less fertile for sectarian conflicts but these people in these conflicts right now are indisputably squeezing triggers over religion, at targets chosen for religious reasons, and recruited by religious mesaging. They are not shooting people over disagreements about footnotes in scholarly tomes on the Abassid Caliphates.
