The French Reformation seemed well-placed to succeed: there was a vigorous pre-reform movement, an apparent welcome for the work of French-speaking reformers in many quarters despite severe persecution, and the beginnings of a powerful and well-organized church structure. Yet, French protestantism remained the faith only of a minority. This book seeks to understand this apparent contradiction and to explain why protestantism failed to take hold in France.

Heterodoxy in the early-French Reformation; repression and the growth of a Protestant Church; the social geography of French Protestantism; the Huguenots and the Civil Wars. Appendix: the social geography of French Protestantism around 1560.
