John Calvin was originally from France and his ideas became popular there. French Protestants became known as Huguenots. Only about 7% of the French were Protestants. But almost half of the nobles were Protestant, including the Bourbons (the 2nd most powerful family in France). They ruled Navarre and were in line for the throne.

6 The Religious Wars of France
She refused to compromise with the Protestants so in 1562 a civil war broke out between the Protestants and Catholics that would last for 30 years. In 1589, Henry of Navarre, leader of the Huguenots and head of the Bourbon family, became King Henry IV of France. The war continued because he had yet to capture Paris. Henry knew the Catholic people would not accept him, so he agreed to become Catholic if the people would accept him as king. Though he became Catholic so he could become king, he issued an edict in 1598 – the Edict of Nantes that said that Catholicism was the official religion of France, but gave Huguenots the right to worship freely.

7 What was the Thirty Years’ War?
In the 1600s, there was another religious war that was even worse. It started in Bohemia when Protestant nobles rebelled against the Catholic king. Protestant kings in Germany decided to help them and the war spread throughout the Holy Roman Empire. The war lasted from It involved France, Sweden, Denmark, England, the Netherlands, Spain and the Holy Roman Empire. Some towns were completely wiped out. Spain was weakened and France was made one of Europe’s most powerful countries.

8 The Reformation in Spain
The ideas of Luther and Calvin never really spread to Spain. But Spanish rulers were always suspicious of anyone in Spain who was not Catholic. When the reformation began King Ferdinand and Queen Isabella had just created the country by uniting their kingdoms and they felt all their subjects should be Catholics and cast out anyone who wasn’t Catholic. They established the Spanish Inquisition. People were put on trial to investigate charges of heresy. People were put to the test of terrible acts of torture to confess to guilt. They executed 2000 Spaniards. Even the pope could not control the inquisition.

A group of people demanded that the Anglican Church give up its Catholic ways of doing things. They came to be called Puritans because they wanted to PURIFY the Church of Catholic ideas. Puritans began to form their own congregations and make their own decisions about what their congregation was going to do and not do. They didn’t report to the bishop of the Anglican Church and they chose their own minister.

French and Spanish Jesuits converted Native Americans in the new world. They had great success in Japan in the 15 and 1600s converting thousands to Christianity, but eventually the Japanese Shogun banned Christianity and expelled all missionaries. Spanish missionaries had great success in the Philippine Islands where today it is still a Catholic majority country.
