9780521023870: Noble Power during the French Wars of Religion: The Guise Affinity and the Catholic Cause in Normandy (Cambridge Studies in Early Modern History)

Noble affinities were the essence of power in sixteenth-century France. This is the first book to analyze the development of a noble following during the whole course of the Wars of Religion. The Guise were one of the greatest families of Christendom and this is the first substantial work on them for a century. In Normandy, a stronghold of Protestantism, they built a formidable ultra-Catholic party that ultimately challenged the monarchy. This book breaks new ground by discussing all groups in political society, from international dynastic politics to peasant revolt.

Review:

"The author provides valuable insights into Guisard activities on the national level, such as the St. Bartholomew's Massacre and efforts on behalf of their kinswoman, Mary Stuart. Based on extensive archival research, this book should lead to a reconsideration of the Guise role in the religious wars." Choice

"[Carroll's] book rests on a remarkable body of archival research and on an unmatched reconstruction of specific political happenings; and it gives unusually close attention to the lesser lights among the Guise, alongside the acknowledged stars. This very impressive research permits a more balanced appreciation of the Guise than we usually get, as well as numerous corrections of other historians' errors of detail." Catholic Historical Review

"The author is to be praised...for expanding our knowledge of early modern French clientage." Sharon Kettering, Journal of Interdisciplinary History

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2005. Paperback. Book Condition: New. Language: English . Brand New Book ***** Print on Demand *****. Noble affinities were the essence of power in sixteenth-century France. This is the first book to analyse the development of a noble following during the whole course of the Wars of Religion and the first substantial study of the Guise - the most powerful family of the period - to appear for over a century. The Guise, champions of the catholic cause, were the largest landowners in the province and used Normandy as a base for their support of catholicism in the British Isles. The family exploited religious dissension to build a formidable ultra-catholic party in Normandy which ultimately challenged the monarchy. This study breaks new ground by illuminating the relationship between high politics and popular confessional solidarities, especially the rise of radical catholicism. It exploits new archival sources to consider all groups in political society, reinterpreting court politics and discussing groups usually excluded from the traditional political narrative, such as the peasantry.
