Alex Kronk

can somebody explain to me where it says individuals support a rival religion for political reasons : guis family vs valois family catholic vs. catholic, i dont understand how that is rival religion if they are both staunch catholics, wouldnt that just be competitors?

former student

know that sheet. one of the essay quetions last year delt with the religous wars. i didn't remmeber which one was which, but i wound up guessing right. but that's not the point. the point is know it!

Kelly Ralston

oh yeah i don't get the same thing as alex. i know this was just e-mailed to you mr. adams so if you could please explain?

Kelly Ralston

or anyone else for that matter.

Kelly Ralston

oh alex i think he's trying to say that the valois family was supporting the bourbons when they were protestant to get rid of the guises.

dmitry

The valois was Henry 3 he wanted to support the catholics to weaken the guises. Because if the bourbons were wiped out the guises would come after the valois next.

dmitry

well... actually catherine de' medici wanted to support the bourbons... Henry was kind of stupid and helpless.

ansley adams

mr. adams i've decided to comment you all the time so you will get a bunch of e-mails!!! hahaha this is my revenge on you bc the room is soo cold!
I'M GUNNA GET HYPOTHERMIA(MAYBE)

ansley maybe you can go cry about it and it will turn into ice

Weren't the Netherlands already really tolerant before the Dutch Revolt? How would they have a higher degree of toleration after the Revolt?

JH

im pretty sure it was just amsterdam that was really tolerant, i think after the dutch revolt the whole netherlands supported them and gave them more freedom. but don't quote me on that...!

Sarah Hayward

Do we need a thesis statement?

Adams

S.H. Yes
The Valois are Catholic Monarchs. They periodically side with the Bourbons (prots) against the Guise (catholic) family in those 7 wars of Religion (3 Henries is the 8th)

eli

what would some good general topics be?

so far all i have thought of were violence, foreign involvement (i'm not so sure about)and religious tolerance.

ali

adams, thanks so much for posting that- it's a big help.

Sarah Hayward

silly question but i am feeling a little overwelmed by life in general right now. Thanks

ali

agreed.

fardin

MR.Adams or any of his smart students: Was the only foreign involment in the 30 yrs war by the french, spanish, nd swedish. Or was there more??

megan ververis

hey i know that the sack of antwerp unites a diverse dutch pop. against the spanish. its not in the book. what exactly happened. is it when duke of alva killed people in antwerp? who did he kill? was it even him?

Kristen Linkinhoker

okay. i am completely screwed. i printed out that chart thingy. but today in class i was completely lost. and i am having major trouble getting the connections to click.. help???? anyone?

ali

megan, it was spanish soldiers who were fed up by not being paid, so they went through antwerp and randomly killed people/ sacked the town.

megan ververis

hey ali thanks so much ive been calling people all night. oh and kristen whatever you do dont do three paragraphs: french wars of religion, dutch revolt, 30 years war. use three of the main subjects(on left of chart) and do three paragraphs on each of those. if you dont know how to fill it all out, use three your most familiar with and dont forget terms

Kelly Ralston

kristen i'd go with what megan said. also the 30 yrs war site adams put up seems fairly easy, so maybe go there.

Ailie Green

can we make our 3 body paragraphs about each war... like my first body would be about the french wars, second about the dutch revolt, and the thirsd about the thirty years war.. and just talk about politics and religion relating to each one?

megan ververis

hey ailie dont do that do you remember when he said people who do that will get a c? read my last comment to kristen

Ailie Green

ahhh thank you so much! haha cause that was about to be my plan!! i owe you!

megan ververis

ha yeah dont worry about it

Kristen Linkinhoker

thanks thanks thanks megan and kelly. that helped clear things up a bit. good plan yeay

Adams

none are graded so far, despite what you may have been told by classmates : )

steinbrecher

i was kind of worried about the essay, but it was easier than i thought it was gonna be.
