Antoine de Chandieu (1534-1591) was a key figure in the establishment and development of the French Protestant church. Of all its indigenous leaders, he was closest to Calvin, and took a leading role in all the major debates about resistance, church order and doctrine of the Church. Chandieu was uniquely placed not merely to engage and contribute to the great debates of the day, but also to record ongoing events. By illuminating his career, which meshed almost exactly with the French Wars of Religion, this book not only demonstrates the key role Chandieu's played in the development of French Protestantism, but also highlights the vital role of literature in shaping the religious experience of the wars.
