Europeans in the fifteenth and early sixteenth centuries were strongly attracted by the idea that they could become the agents of God's will on the battlefield. The Wars of Religion flowed quite naturally from this pattern of thought. This concluding chapter briefly explores this proposition with reference to the Catholic defence of Toulouse in 1567–8, English Protestant thinking in the 1620s and 1630s, and Pedro de Ribadeneyra's sermon to the soldiers embarking on the Spanish Armada in 1588.
