Throughout the 16th-century, numerous attempts to eradicate Protestantism in Europe were developed during the French Wars of Religion. One particular contributor to this was the Catholic League or Holy League of 1576. This league sought to push Henry III of France off the throne in hopes of allowing Catholicism to again be practiced throughout France.

 

Historian Louis Maimbourg, known for his histories of the Crusades, Calvinism, and Catholicism, wrote an important history of the Catholic League. This history proved to be influential, not only in providing a history of Catholicism in France, but to aid in the 17th-century religious feuds in England. Translator John Dryden made an English edition of this work to draw parallels and connections between the Catholic League and religious persecutions of 17th-century England.
