This selection of documents includes: key legislative acts from the edicts concerning religion and toleration in the 1560's through the 1590's; sources on types of religious violence during the early years of the wars; a detailed examination of the of Saint Barthlolomew; the early years of Henry III and the emergence of the first of the Catholic leagues; and the breakdown of royal authority in the 1580s and its restoration by Henry IV.
