Video title: The Age of Religious Wars

Use this History and Western Heritage video entitled The Age of Religious Wars to study how from Martin Luther’s death in 1546 until the middle of the 17th century, European life was almost entirely dominated by religiously and politically inspired violence. Learn how Roman Catholics and Protestants across Europe engaged in almost a century of slaughter before religion ceased to be the primary motive or excuse for warfare, and France descended into nearly 50 years of civil war before emerging with a united monarchy under the terms of the Edict of Nantes in 1598.
