  3. n Spain, the desire for religious unity was pronounced and resulted in the Spanish Inquisition. From the 13th century through the end of the 15th century, Catholics persecuted and slaughtered thousands of people considered heretics, mostly Jews and Muslims. Many Jews and Muslims converted to Christianity to avoid death. Yet even these individuals were still considered a threat and were persecuted.

    In France, holy wars between Catholics and Protestants, known as Huguenots, stained the streets with blood. Huguenots were considered heretics and persecuted by the Catholics. On August 24 and 25, 1572, thousands of Huguenots were slain in Paris. It was known as the Massacre of St. Bartholomew’s Day. The persecution spread throughout France. Civil war and fighting between the two groups would last into the 18th century, until most of the Huguenots had fled to other countries.
