comment Why did the French nobility adopt Calvinism?
@FelixGoldberg: Not everyone opts for their own self interest; some prefer to choose ideologies. A "cui bono" model of this sort can only identify what people would TEND to do, not what they would actually do. I also added an allusion to the facts that Calvin was French and Luther was German, because "nationalism" also explains some people's choices.
