This concluding chapter presents a synthesis of the preceding chapters. It argues that in relative terms, the Lorraine persecution was very intense, placing the duchy near the head of any European league table in terms of both absolute numbers and the proportion of the population involved. The high rate of persecution between 1570 and 1630 was essentially generated by a dispersed and intermittent process at the level of individual jurisdictions.
