This title was first published in 2001. Using fresh archival evidence and a broad range of methodological perspectives, this collection of ten essays explores the world of France's Huguenots between the Edict of Nantes and its Revocation. Studies that range from a meticulous nationwide reconstruction of the community's demographic fate to a detailed exploration of the mental and emotional world of a single pastor excavate the distinctive contours of Huguenot religious experience, lay bare the struggles and successes of this religious minority in resisting ever-intensifying pressures to convert, and explore its members' growing turn to commerce. The findings illuminate such larger topics of the long Reformation era as the difficult adjustment to new situations of religious pluralism, the relationship between Calvinism and capitalism, and the implications of Protestantism for print culture and the visual arts.
