Abstract

Religious toleration and understanding have been the cornerstone of war and dispute since the idea of religious faiths were founded. The persecution and ostracizing of others justified by the belief that you had the truth and the only true faith has been the validation for massacres and wars across the world. Very few wars were fought without any religious aspect, especially in European history which had been dominated for centuries by the crusades, religious wars to reclaim the holy land from those who were seen as the wrong faith. Religious fanaticism was the principle characteristic of the Medieval and Early Modern world, determining not just how people lived their lives through not only morals and ethics but also through the making up of the year through separation of seasons and festivals. The lives of people were impacted in all ways by religion, with their news being dictated by what they were told from the pulpit. Religious changes such as the irrevocable reformation impacted how people not only practiced their religion but also lived their lives. In France, this reformation caused numerous wars, which were according to the historical orthodoxy, ended in 16293. How did Louis XIV manage to turn what seemed to be the end of religious infighting into guerrilla warfare in his own country and international condemnation and relation deterioration?
