    Unformatted Sample Text from the Research Paper:
    de Medici in the implementation and execution of the massacre, as it deemphasizes her intentions to murder anyone outside of the Huguenot leadership circle, while additionally, not denying that her  choice of violence eradicated any chance of compromise between Huguenots and the crown. As this suggests, this article adds immeasurably to the readers knowledge of the queens role. Benedict, Philip.  "The wars of religion, 1562-1598." Holt, M.P., Ed. Renaissance and Reformation France, 1500-1648. New York, NY: Oxford University Press, 2002. This author particularly focuses on the consequences of  the massacre in French society and the ultimate effect it had on the course of Protestantism in France. This author also relates descriptions of the events that contribute to the  understanding of the reader as why and how these events occurred, which indicates their complicated nature. Burns, Edward M. Western Civilizations, Their history and Their Culture. New York, NY: W.W.  Norton, 1969.

This is a good source for gaining understanding of the periods background. De Thou (1553-1617). "The Massacre of St. Bartholomews Day." Robinson, J.H., Ed. Readings in European History,  Vol. 2. Boston, MA: Ginn, 1906. Hanover Historical Text Project. http://history.hanover.edu/texts/barth.htm (accessed May 18, 2009). This is the first-hand account of an eyewitness to the events that  occurred on St. Bartholomews Day. This is graphic description of what happened, and it is chilling, not only because of what it describes, but also by the matter-of-fact tone of  the narrative voice. However, as the narrative progresses, the connotation of De Thou is one of a person who is clearly horrified at the details, he describes. Erlanger, Philippe.
