Summary
Beneath the Cross traces the escalating cycle of violence that culminated in the bloody massacre on Saint Bartholomew's Day in 1572, and explains its social, political, and spiritual roots. Diefendorf combines narrative history with analysis of the competing messages from Catholic and Protestant pulpits and gives insights into the underground Protestant community in Paris, the radicalization of the Catholic message under the pressure of civil war, and the progressive division of the city into moderate and extremist Catholic factions
