Saint Bartholomew's Day Massacre was a turning point in the French Wars of Religion. It was a series of targeted assassinations and mob violence against the Huguenots (French Calvinist Protestants). It started on 23 August 1572 in Paris, on Saint Bartholomew's Night, the eve before the feast of Bartholomew the Apostle. The massacres spread throughout other cities and the countryside and lasted several weeks.
