Book Description:

Martin I. Klauber and his troupe of capable historians survey the tumultuous era of the first three generations of French Protestantism.

The first part of the book provides historical context, including chapters on the national synods of the French Reformed churches, the wars of religion, the St. Bartholomew's Day Massacre, the conversion of Henry IV, and the political views of the French Monarchomachs.

The second part of the book takes a closer look at the lives and contributions of leading French reformers like Guillaume Farel, Nicolas des Gallers, John Calvin, Sebastian Castellio, Peter Ramus, Antoine de Chandieu, Simon Goulart, Theodore Beza, Pierre Viret, and Philippe du Plessis-Mornay. This collection provides a quality introduction to French Reformed theology in the sixteenth century.

Martin I. Klauber (PhD, University of Wisconsin-Madison) is an affiliate professor of church history at Trinity Evangelical Divinity School.


 “In engaging and lucid prose, Martin Klauber and a team of early modern scholars have added a third and welcome volume of historical theology filling a significant scholarly gap on issues and figures in the development of the theology and confessional identity of sixteenth-century French Reformed churches. This volume is an important contribution to graduate seminars and sixteenth-century studies and will be a reference point in future studies.”
--Todd M. Rester, associate professor of church history, Westminster Theological Seminary

“The movements of reformation in sixteenth-century France were profound and vital but have too often been overlooked. The distinguished studies in this book deepen our understanding of the struggles of the Reformed there to build the church and of the work of its wisest leaders and theologians. A very valuable collection.”
--W. Robert Godfrey, president emeritus and professor emeritus of church history, Westminster Seminary California
