This volume examines the history of religious dissent and discord in France from the time of the Wars of Religion to the present day. Contributors analyze the various solutions elaborated by the government, by religious institutions, and by private groups in response to the serious problems raised by religious differences. This collection of essays also explores the impact these problems and solutions have on religious and national identity, and how these issues play out in political and religious life today.
“Along with a comprehensive bibliography and index, several of the essays in this collection will be important resources for graduate students news to the field. Other essays will interest very specialized scholars who focus on Jansenist history.”
