Ep04 – Old Europe on Fire

   Religion and politics. Stick with me, this is all hugely important to the world and worldview of the Caribbean pirates. We discuss Martin Luther, the schism in the Catholic Church that led to Protestantism, the resulting political turmoil in Europe and the effects on England. This conflict shaped the Old World and the New World and led to wars that employed some of the most notorious pirates of all time.
