Exange with Anne BROGINI. "Protestants and Catholics: Saint Barthelemy" (1572)

Anne Brogini is a professor of modern history at the Université Côte d'Azur at the CMMC laboratory (Centre de la Méditerranée Moderne et Contemporaine). She is a specialist in relations between Christians and Muslims in the Mediterranean of the 16th and 17th centuries, as well as in military orders (Order of Malta). She works particularly on ideas of empires, war and race war, as well as on economic history (merchants, slaves), on religious history (Inquisition) and on social history (nobility), analysed at macro level (Mediterranean area) as well as at local level (Nice and Savoie).

Protestants and Catholics: Saint Bartholomew (1572)

King Charles IX and his mother, Catherine de Medici, are trying to re-establish a policy of tolerance, revive the monarchical zeal and unify the country through a marriage between a Catholic princess, Marguerite de Valois, and a Protestant prince, Henri de Navarre, August 1572. But marriage is the prelude to one of the most famous religious massacres, St Bartholomew’s Day, where an outburst of violence was expressed and several thousand Protestants were killed. For Saint-Barthélemy was not limited to the Paris massacre, but touched other cities of France between August and October 1572.
