Season of Conspiracy: Calvin, the French Reformed Churches, and Protestant Plotting in the Reign of Francis II (1559=60) Transactions Vol. 108, Part 5
This volume considers the March 1560 conspiracy of Amboise and subsequent plots to remove the young King Francis II from the sway of his chief advisors of the house of Guise and improve the legal situation of France’s Protestant movement. New and rediscovered evidence -- most important, the testimony of a cabinetmaker engaged in the plotting from January through September -- reveals the conspiracies to have been more closely linked to the Reformed churches within France and to John Calvin in Geneva than previously understood. This compels a reconsideration not only of events often said to have constituted the first act of the French Wars of Religion, but also of Calvin’s political engagement and sagacity. Illus.
