Catherine de Medici Debate

Peace of Saint Germain 1570

There are two conflicting views on the peace of Saint – Germain 1570 that created peace just before the massacre of Bartholomew. Either it was a genuine attempt to heal the religious division of France or it was a tarp to lure the Huguenots into a false sense of security so it would be easier to trap them. Most historians believe it was a sincere effort to bring peace, again supporting the view that the massacre was not blamed and therefore Catherine not as dark as believed.
