Excerpt from History of the United Netherlands, Vol. 3 of 4: From the Death of William the Silent to the Synod of Dort, With a Full View of the English-Dutch Struggle Against Spain, and of the Origin and Destruction of the Spanish Armada

Holy Confederacy and the Bearnese struggled together for the mastery. Religion was the mantle under which the chiefs on both sides concealed their real designs as they led on their followers year after year to the desper ate conflict. And their followers, the masses, were doubtless in earnest. A great principle - the relation of man to his Maker, and his condition in a future world, as laid down by rival priesthoods - has in almost every stage of history had power to influence the multitude to fury and to deluge the world in blood. And so long as the superstitious element of human nature enables indi viduals or combinations of them to dictate to their fel low-creatures those relations, or to dogmatize concerning those conditions, - to take possession of their consciences, in short, and to interpose their mummeries between man and his Creator, - it is probable that such scenes as caused the nations to shudder throughout so large a portion of the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries will continue to repeat themselves at intervals in various parts of the earth. Nothing can be more sublime than the self-sacrifice, nothing more demoniac than the crimes, which human creatures have seemed always ready to exhibit under the name of religion.
