Above all, Bèze's correspondence is an anthology of historic documents from the end of the 16th century. However, one also finds theology; the previous volume included a little treatise on justification written to Doctor Crato, and in this volume his friends' reactions to this treatise (Crato himself, Morau) illustrate the difference between theology and the care of the soul. Also in 1585 the League erupts in France: "would the king know how to resist the rebels," asks Bèze. Later he explains how the king gave into them, sacrificing the edict of religion, and prohibiting all Protestantism in France. Soon the people in the Midi also rebel in the “Guerre des trois Henri”. Bèze's pessimism mounts: everywhere are signs of a general papist conspiracy, organised by Jesuits, who carry on ruthlessly even in Switzerland. It is under their influence that a print shop is set up in Fribourg, which immediately publishes a blistering attack of the reformation, written by Father Jean Hay. Bèze prepares a reply.
