The Huguenots by G. R. R Treasure( Book )

10 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 514 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Following the Reformation, a growing number of radical Protestants came together to live and worship in Catholic France. The Huguenots survived persecution and armed conflict to win freedom of worship, civil rights and unique status as a protected minority. In 1685, following renewed persecution, the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes abolished their remaining rights. Choosing faith over home, over 200,000 Huguenots fled across Europe and, soon, further afield. In this magnificent book, Geoffrey Treasure explores what it was like to be a Huguenot through their rise, survival and fall, from power politics to religious practice and the psychological pressures of living in a threatened 'state within a state'. Over a span of a century and a half he weaves together political and religious concerns, those of statesmen, feudal magnates and leading figures of the Catholic revival, a Catherine de Medici seeking compromise, a Louis XIV requiring unity, with the stories of ordinary citizens leading extraordinary lives
Louis XIV by G. R. R Treasure( Book )

2 editions published in 2001 in English and held by 449 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Louis XIV changed the course of French history. His kingship was a sustained tour de force and his reign among the most important in the history of Europe. Though less powerful in practice than in absolutist theory and propaganda, the reign of Louis XIV still represents the apogee of French royal power in the ancient regime." "The age of Louis XIV was a period of French dominance, advances in government, great influence abroad and rich cultural achievement. Majestic in conception, bold in ambition and splendid in image and ceremony, the monarchy of Louis XIV set standards and posed questions which have challenged us ever since." "Louis XIV has consistenly provoked both adulation and hostility to the present day. Geoffrey Treasure expertly manages a balance between these poles by setting Louis in the style and thinking of the period. He evaluates the propaganda and manages to unravel and detach the real Louis from the images and representations."--Jacket
