This book presents the Colloquy of Montbéliard as a paradigm of the problems that resulted from the political and religious fragmentation that dominated the second half of the sixteenth century. It does so not only in terms of theological differences but also by indicating the influence of those theological differences on political alliances and hence on the development of the nations of Europe. The Colloquy of Montbéliard was convened to address the problem of a few hundred French exiles who wanted to receive communion under their own confession and from ministers who used a French rather than a German liturgy.

Keywords:   Colloquy of Montbéliard, religious fragmentation, French exiles, French liturgy, German liturgy
