    Both. It started as a war between the different Catholic and Protestant states in the Holy Roman Empire, but by the end it was more political than religious. It turned into a war between Pro and Anti-Habsburg states and countries. Many would change sides regardless of whether they were Protestant or Catholic if they felt that it would benefit them.

    Both. It started about religious issues and ended up being about power and politics.

    All European wars after the Schism are religious and political. Please show your work for you claim of deaths.

    Both. 

    “The Thirty Years War began as a religious civil war between the Protestants and Roman Catholics in Germany that engaged the Austrian Habsburgs and the German princes. The war soon developed into a devastating struggle for the balance of power in Europe.”
