Read the following responses written with OPEN NOTES in about 5-6 minutes. Which are better? What specific characteristics make some stronger than others? Why are some responses weak?
1) This was said in the document that brought France back together after the French Civil War. It was said right after the war was over in the late 1500s. It is saying that it will bring back the Catholic religion to France and restore all order to the country.
2) In 1598, the Edict of Nantes ended the wars of religion in France between Catholics and Huguenots (French Calvinists). Henry of Navarre, who became king Henry IV, ended these destructive wars by putting the interests of France ahead of those of religious conformity. He did this by converting to Catholicism. The edict not only restored France to Catholicism, but allowed toleration within certain limits to the French Protestants who made up a much smaller proportion of the total population. Huguenots, for example, were allowed to worship within their cities, but were not allowed to preach Calvinism in Catholic areas in order to keep the peace.
3) It is said about a person or a group who wants the catholic religion to be dominant in there countries. It was at the end of the 1500s.
4) Said by Henry IV in the Edict of Nantes. He wrote it in the small French city of Nantes. Its significant because it ceased the French war of religion and gave protection to the protestant religion and said they could practice their religion in the kingdom. It also said no one can force their religion onto others. The document was described as a statute.
5) People in the catholic church wanted catholicism to be the major religion in the catholic church.
6) Henry IV wrote this in the Edict of Nantes in 1598. He was recognizing Protestants as a religion and protecting them from being forced to go against their beliefs. This is important because this document helped to bring about the end of the religious wars in France.
7) This comes from early 1500s. I forgot who says it. I see a country coming back together and laying laws down, so all can see.
8) I believe it took place in Europe when the 30 years war was over and the peace of Augsburg was taking place.
9) This is part of Henry of Navarre's Edict of Nantes that brought an end to the French Wars of Religion around 1598. The edict stated that the Huguenots (Calvinists) had the right to practice their religion freely and openly as long as they didn't try to push their religion on others.
10) This is from the Edict of Nantes (1598) from King Henry IV of France proclaiming Catholicism the state religion but also allowing Protestants to practice their religion, just not in public. It's significant because Henry had been Protestant but converted to unite the country and consolidate power after years of civil war.
11) Its about some people wanting to rebuild Catholic churches during 1570s. Elizabeth wanted to change religion. King Henry tried to but didn't succeed at everything.
12) This quote is from King Henry II and he was writing or saying the laws that they need to introduce so that the fighting would come to an end. He was stating that those things would end and the variety and make it one religion.
