Historians of the French Wars of Religion and the Dutch Revolt have observed the interconnected nature of these two wars and have pointed at a common desire for news among the French and Dutch. Rosanne Baars studies a large number of diaries and chronicles from both countries to find out how the French and Dutch made sense of news about the conflict in the other country. She argues that the second half of the sixteenth century saw the gradual emergence of a transnational news culture.
