Frederik II and the Protestant Cause: Denmark's Role in the Wars of Religion, 1559-1596Books Authored by Wright State Faculty/Staff
DescriptionThis book considers the role played by Denmark's King Frederik II (1559-1588) in the international diplomacy of the 'age of religious wars'. As Europe's leading Lutheran sovereign, Frederik commanded great influence, his conviction that an international Catholic 'conspiracy' threatened to destroy Protestantism led him to work towards the creation of a Protestant alliance that included both Calvinist and Lutheran states.
