On the Late Massacre in the Piedmont

by John Milton

In the heart of 17th-century Europe, a massacre of innocent Waldensians ignites a fire of fury and poetic protest in the soul of John Milton. John Milton, the renowned English poet, unleashes a searing sonnet, "On the Late Massacre in the Piedmont," as a poignant response to the horrific Easter massacre of Waldensians in Piedmont, Italy. In 1655, the Duke of Savoy ordered a ruthless campaign against the Waldensians, a Protestant group, leaving thousands dead and many more displaced.
