About this title

Synopsis:

The Huguenots were a religious minority in France who fought during the second half of the sixteenth century for their Protestant (Calvinist) beliefs, and to whom concessions were granted by the crown with the Edict of Nantes in 1598. The Huguenots continued to enjoy their privileged status until the Edict was revoked in 1685. This collection of essays explores the character and identity of the Huguenot movement by examining their institutions, patterns of belief and worship, and interaction with French state and society.

Review:

"...these essays will be valuable reading for those interested in the Reformation and ancien regime France. It is especially valuable because of the variety of angles from which Huguenot identity is approached." Elisabeth Wengler, College of Saint Benedict, Saint John's University, The Historian

"A good book with innovative, well argued, and well-written essays, a must for scholars interested in the history of the Huguenot movement." H-FRANCE

"Every essay is an example of careful, informed scholarship, and is amply footnoted. The collection, with a brief but useful index, belongs in respectable Reformation-era collections. Reformation-era collections. Graduate level and above." Choice

"...the essays...are generally informative and together present a highly instructive portrait of Huguenot society and culture...[The book] should be of interest not only to specialists but also to advanced students of French history." History

"The strength of this volume is the ability of its twelve essays to construct a compelling image of the 'complex and contradictory character' of the homme protestant." Journal of Interdisciplinary History

"The assembled articles in [this book] provide important new perspectives on the Huguenot community, its identity, and its practices. The impressive breadth and diversity of offerings in this excellent volume make it perhaps the best overview of Protestantism in early modern France currently available." Sixteenth Century Journal

"This marvelous anthology explores the Hugueonts' struggle for such equal treatment and liberty during the entire period that led up to the revocation of the Edict." The Westminster Theological Journal

"A very useful volume." Renaissance Quarterly
