The Wars of Religion embroiled France in decades of faction, violence, and peacemaking in the late sixteenth century. When historians interpret these events they inevitably depend on sources of information gathered by contemporaries, none more valuable than the diaries and collection of Pierre de L'Estoile (1546-1611), who lived through the civil wars in Paris and shaped how they have been remembered ever since. Taking him out of the footnotes, and demonstrating his significance in the culture of the late Renaissance, this is the first life of L'Estoile in any language. It examines how he negotiated and commemorated the conflicts that divided France as he assembled an extraordinary collection of the relics of the troubles, a collection that he called "the storehouse of my curiosities." The story of his life and times is the history of the civil wars in the making.

Focusing on a crucial individual for understanding Reformation Europe, this study challenges historians' assumptions about the widespread impact of confessional conflict in the sixteenth century. L'Estoile's prudent, non-confessional responses to the events he lived through and recorded were common among his milieu of Gallican Catholics. His life-writing and engagement with contemporary news, books, and pictures reveals how individuals used different genres and media to destabilize rather than fix confessional identities. Bringing together the great variety of topics in society and culture that attracted L'Estoile's curiosity, this volume rethinks his world in the Wars of Religion.

About the Author:


Tom Hamilton studied History as an undergraduate at Gonville and Caius College, University of Cambridge, and as a graduate student at New College, University of Oxford. During his doctoral research he was attached to the Centre Roland Mousnier, University of Paris-Sorbonne. After finishing his thesis he taught for a year in Oxford at Hertford College and the History Faculty. He returned to Cambridge in 2015 as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College.

Review:


"Hamilton's work demonstrates the process through which L'Estoile's memory helped to determine our own interpretation of the period, an important observation for anyone interested in the Wars of Religion in particular or the construction of historical memory in general."--Hilary Bernstein, H-France


"Thoroughly researched, tautly argued and well supported with telling examples, this is an important book ... a model study of how memory is constructed through the creation and manipulation of texts."--Barbara B. Diefendorf, History


"a fascinating and accomplished monograph ... Tom Hamilton transcends the apparent constraints of the subject by an approach that is original and striking ... [it] will change the way that historians of this period approach his important source-text."--Mark Greengrass, French Studies


"Tom Hamilton has managed to sketch a vivid portrayal of someone who has served as a prism for generations of scholars through which to view everyday events in 16th-century Paris during the turmoil of wars, with his sharp, distanced and trenchant characterizations ... All in all, Tom Hamilton presents a densely researched, sensible and carefully written intellectual and socio-political biography of one of the most central, individual, and interesting testimonies of the period of radicalization during the French Wars of Religion."--Cornel Zwierlein, Francia-Recensio
