Calvinists and Libertines

Oxford University Press

This chapter covers the stormy 1580s, which began with the Libertines in control, saw a Calvinist theocratic regime seize power in 1586, and ended with Libertines as firmly back in the saddle as ever before. The conspiracies, coups, and counter-coups illustrate how closely the contours of religious, social, and political community followed one another in the late 16th century.
