 St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre  


On August 24, 1572 the infamous St. Bartholomew's Day massacre took place. At midnight Catholic troops began to break into the homes of French Hugenots (Protestants) and drag them into the streets to be tortured and executed. More than 50,000 people were murdered. Pope Gregory XIII was so pleased that he had a commemorative coin struck in honor of the event. On one side is the Pope's image, on the other is a depiction of the massacre with the inscription that reads, "Slaughter of the Hugenots, 1572."  (See link attached and scroll down)
