"During the years between the end of the Wars of Religion and the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes, France's Huguenots enjoyed three generations of relatively stable religious toleration, even though they faced constant solicitations to convert to Catholicism and an erosion of their civil rights. These pioneering essays explore fundamental questions about the Huguenot community - the largest Calvinist minority in seventeenth-century Europe - during the years when the Edict of Nantes defined the terms of its existence." "Benedict's essays delve deeply into untapped archival materials and use methods drawn from horizons as varied as historical demography, the history of the book and the history of mentalities." These essays will prove of interest to all those concerned with the long-term consequences of the European Reformation, not to mention those simply fascinated by the outlook and experience of a group whose tragic history proved exceptionally rich in human drama.
