analyzing Catholic activism within the south-west of France through the heart a long time of the 16th century, this publication argues - opposite to winning perspectives - that the phenomenon was once either common and militant even ahead of the formation of the Catholic League in 1576. when fresh examine has supplied a miles larger figuring out of the Huguenot fight for protection and legitimacy, there has no longer been a correspondingly thorough research into the grass-roots Catholic response to this, and by way of brushing aside episodes of pre-League Catholic militancy as constrained and ephemeral, a distorted photo of French confessional clash and contention is painted. using surviving fabric from the provincial files at Bordeaux, Toulouse, Agen, and on the Bibliothèque Nationale in Paris, this booklet offers abundant facts 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 fans, and municipal and court docket 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 should be traced. inside of this surroundings of emerging rigidity, it really is proven how Catholic militancy reflected the organizational and fund-raising means in their Protestant competitors, 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 might deal a deadly blow to Protestant plans for supremacy of the south-west.
