Society and Culture in the Huguenot World, 1559-1685 by Raymond A. Mentzer
Book DescriptionThe Huguenots formed a privileged minority within early modern France. During the second half of the sixteenth century, they fought for freedom of worship in the French 'wars of religion' which culminated in the Edict of Nantes in 1598. The community was protected by the terms of the Edict for eighty-seven years until Louis XIV revoked it in 1685. The Huguenots therefore constitute a minority group tolerated by one of the strongest nations in early modern Europe, a country more often associated with the absolute power of the crown - in particular that of Louis XIV. This collection of essays explores the character and identity of the Huguenot movement by examining their culture and institutions, their patterns of belief and worship and their interaction with French state and society. The volume draws upon research by leading historians and specialists from across Europe and North America.

The Calvinists were often seen as much stricter in morals than Lutherans, Catholics, or Anglicans, and as strict as those from the radical reformation. Contributors to this collection look at this stereotype of Calvinists.
