How did politics shape the religious positions of the French leaders? What led to the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre, and what did it achieve?
Politics greatly shaped the religious positions of the French leaders, especially Catherine de Medicis, the queen mother. Catherine de Medicis’ rein exemplifies the political struggle of three powerful French families, the Bourbons, Montmorency-Chatillons, and the Guises, who were Protestant, Protestant, and strictly Catholic, respectively. The Queen mother first sided with the Protestant French families; however, after the Duke of Guise massacred many Protestants, the Queen mother, out of fear for the Guises, sided with the Catholic family. Catherine de Medicis, like the Guises, wanted a Catholic France, but she feared a Guise-dominated monarchy, so she tried to balance one side against the other. After Catherine de Medicis sided with the Guises, she felt extreme Guise pressure to silence Protestants after the Protestant leader Coligny was assassinated by the Guises. Catherine feared a Protestant attack on the crown, so she coordinated attacks across France that killed 20,000 French Protestants, later named the Saint Bartholomew’s day massacre. The massacre caused the civil conflicts between families in France to become international wars of religion
How did Spain gain a position of dominance in the sixteenth century? What were Philip II’s successes and failures?
The Spanish were able to gain a position of dominance in the sixteenth century in four major ways. The Spanish were able to accumulate large wealths because of the influx of bullion from the New World. Also, the Spanish benefited economically through their increasing population, which triggered inflation. Dominating through political means, Phillip II was able to organize the lesser nobility into a loyal and efficient bureaucracy which allowed him to effectively handle work and war. Philip II also succeed by entering war in the Mediterranean against the Muslims. Finally, the wars of religion occurring in the Mediterranean increased the size and abilities of the Spanish navy, making Spain a major military force in Europe. However, as Philip II became occupied in the Mediterranean, he was not able to subdue revolts in the Netherlands, which proved to be the undoing of Spanish dreams of world empire.
Henry of Navarre (Henry IV of France), Elizabeth I, and William of Orange were all politiques. What does that term mean and why does it apply to these three rulers?
Henry of Navarre, Elizabeth I, and William of Orange were all politiques, those who put political and national unity above religious differences to strengthen the nation. Henry of Navarre was a politique because he sought the middle course between the Catholic league and the Huguenots. Similarly, Elizabeth I put the political unity of England over the religious unity. William of Orange, finding the middle ground in Netherlands, can be considered a politique because he resisted the Spanish Catholic, creating the Compromise, a solemn pledge to resist the decrees of Trent and the Inquisition.
What led to the establishment of the Anglican Church in England? Why did Mary I fail? What was Elizabeth I’s settlement, and why was it difficult to impose on England? Who were her detractors and what were their criticisms?
The Anglican Church was established by Elizabeth I because she was able to merge a centralized episcopal system that she firmly controlled with broadly defined Protestant doctrine. Mary I failed to establish the Anglican church because she was strictly Catholic; she did not want to compromise with Protestant views. Elizabeth I hoped to avoid both Catholic and Protestant extremism by pursuing a middle way. It was successfully imposed on many Catholics and Protestants; however, some extreme Protestant groups disagreed with Elizabeth’s decision. The Puritans and the Congregationalists, who didn’t want to see any Catholic compromises, refused to accept Elizabeth’s doctrines which resulted in them leaving England for more Protestant lands.
Why was the Thirty Years’ War fought? Was politics or religion more important in determining the outcome of the war? What were the main terms of the Treaty of Westphalia in 1648?
The Thirty Years’ War, although originally fought because of religious discrepancies, quickly became a war for political affairs, money, and land, drawing in Europe’s greatest nations. Ultimately the promise of political growth that the Thirty Years’ War promised, because the promise brought many powerful nations into the War, largely determined the outcome of the Thirty Years’ War. The Treaty of Westphalia in 1648, which ended the war, reinstituted the Peace of Augsburg, which gave the ruler of the land the power to determine religion, and recognized Calvinism as an official religion.
Why has the Thirty Years’ War been called the outstanding example in European history of meaningless conflict? Was it really such? Were the results worth the cost of the war?
The Thirty Years’ War has been called the outstanding example in European history of meaningless conflict because it epitomizes a conflict, that had deep religious motivations but greed and politics were the real forces at work; thus, the Thirty Years’ War was meaningless because it had no concrete purpose. The Thirty Years’ War was politically worthless; however, for religions, the Thirty Year’s War was very important for determining the people’s ability to practice their religion. Nevertheless, the results of the war, millions of dead and the destruction of Germany, were not worth the recognition of Calvinism and the reversion back to the ideas expressed in the Peace of Augsburg.
