By Kevin Gould

reading Catholic activism within the south-west of France in the course of the center a long time of the 16th century, this publication argues - opposite to triumphing perspectives - that the phenomenon was once either common and militant even ahead of the formation of the Catholic League in 1576. while fresh study has supplied a much larger figuring out of the Huguenot fight for safety and legitimacy, there has now not been a correspondingly thorough research into the grass-roots Catholic response to this, and through pushing aside episodes of pre-League Catholic militancy as restricted and ephemeral, a distorted photo of French confessional clash and contention is painted. using surviving fabric from the provincial records at Bordeaux, Toulouse, Agen, and on the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, this e-book offers abundant proof for putting the delivery of Catholic activism within the interval previous the Wars of faith, highlighting the confessional tensions that exploded during the 1540s and 1550s. As competing bands of non secular fanatics, and municipal and courtroom officers, fought first with phrases, then with guns, for supremacy of the group within the cities of the south-west, a gentle escalation of war of words could be traced. inside this surroundings of emerging pressure, it really is proven how Catholic militancy reflected the organizational and fund-raising potential in their Protestant opponents, and the way the neighborhood army elite rose to aid their co-religionists on the outbreak of formal hostilities in 1562. The ascendancy of Catholic militants in key city centres via 1570 could deal a deadly blow to Protestant plans for supremacy of the south-west.
