Today/April 13

by PG

Today in History (1598) - King Henry IV of France issues the Edict of Nantes, allowing freedom of religion to French Protestants. Two hundred thirty one years later, the British Parliament reciprocated, granting freedom of religion to Roman Catholics. And happy 261st birthday to Thomas Jefferson, author of Virginia's Statute for Religious Freedom.
