About this book

Through a wide-ranging and close analysis of archival sources, this book re-evaluates both the role of royal authority and of local agency in the French religious wars in the lead up to the Edict of Nantes of 1598. Drawing on extensive research, it provides a new perspective on the political, religious, social and cultural history of the conflict.

Reviews

"By drawing on extensive research in local and royal archives and the recent work of other scholars, including Jeremie Foa, Olivier Christin, and Michel de Waele, Penny Roberts presents an excellent overview of the peacemaking efforts throughout the war years, which culminated with the Edict of Nantes in 1598." - Keith P.
