In response to Gavrilo Princip's shots on 28 June 1914, the Catholic Church in the Slovenian lands described the deaths of Franz Ferdinand and of his consort as those of martyrs, which provided a rich reservoir of biblically inspired arguments when the moment arrived to justify war against the Serbs and their allies. By arguing that Slovenians merely claimed their natural rights, based in divine law, the Catholic Church backed the political option that ultimately led to the creation of the State of Slovenes, Croats and Serbs.
