The Sack of Rome (1527) by Judith Hook

£10.99

Product description

The Sack of Rome (1527) by Judith Hook, Language : English , Format : Hard back up, Condition : good and there is mark of sign of use as there was handwritten in very first page, pages :343, publisher : Macmillan London Limited , SBN : 333132726, Product Dimension : 8.7 " x 5.8 " inch





Synopsis: On May 6, 1527, a mass of German Lutheran and Spanish Catholic troops — unlikely allies — reached Rome. They had been kept unpaid for months and were resentful of the riches of the papacy. As the soldiers — by now a rampaging mob — entered the Vatican, Pope Clement VII was saying a mass in the Sistine Chapel. With Swiss Guards being slaughtered in St. Peter’s Square, the pope was hustled away to safety in the stout Castel Sant’Angelo. And the sack of Rome was on. Complicated political and religious conflicts led to this sorry chapter in Rome’s history. Charles V, both king of Spain (as Charles I) and the Holy Roman Emperor, hoped to conquer Italy. His armies included Lutheran subjects from his German empire caught up in the Protestant Reformation and devout Roman Catholic Spaniards. Pope Clement — from Florence’s mighty Medici family — opposed the emperor’s ambition. In previous years, he had relied on the armies of François I of France, but by 1527, the French king was unable to send any troops to defend Rome.
