Reformed Christianity and the End of the World As We Know It -- Iconoclasts are people who throw down idols and the Reform Christians (or Cavinists) take that literally as they destroy church images in 1566. A modern day Calvinist wrote the book, "How to Survive the End of the World as We Know It."
Yo, Ho, Ho... Pieces of Eight and the US Dollar -- The new King of Spain is minting new coinage that will eventually become such a common coin of commerce that the US dollar will be based upon it.
Suleiman the Magnificent is Dead -- From many standpoints he earned the name "magnificent" but he wasn't always a nice man.
