In his new book, Tous ceux qui tombent. Visages du massacre de la Saint-Barthélemy, Professor Foa uses a broad range of little-known sources to uncover the lives and deaths of French Protestants killed during the Saint Bartholomew’s Day Massacre in Paris and other cities in France in August-October 1572. His research also identifies and illuminates their murderers, who gained experience in harassing their Protestant neighbors during the French civil wars and then put this knowledge to use when circumstances permitted. His talk will shed light not only on the nature of religious violence in the sixteenth century but also on how conflicts can build and generate violence in numerous times and places.
