Available in Stock

A century of religious tolerance in France came to an end with the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685. French Protestants, or Huguenots, were relentlessly persecuted, and many fled to England. In the remote Cévennes, however, villagers clung to their faith. This groundbreaking history charts the little-known conflict of 1702–4, when shepherds and farmers went into combat singing psalms, holding the armed might of the French state at bay for two years before their eventual defeat.
