9780754602255: The Faith and Fortunes of Farance's Huguenots, 1600-85

The essays presented in this book represent a series of explorations in the social and religious history of France's Huguenots between the Edict of Nantes and its revocation. This book investigates the history of the Huguenots: how the community evolved numerically and sociologically in the face of intensifying pressure to return to the Catholic church; the nature of huguenot identity; the religious psychology, cultural practices and mental world of the group and its members. It also studies marital customs, moral beliefs, social mobility and wealth accumulation. The author explores whether there was a link between Calvinism and capitalism, as German sociologist Max Weber believed. He looks at whether the Huguenots displayed a greater inner-wordly asceticism or more of an aptitude for economic success than their Catholic neighbours. There is an investigation of the Protestant and Catholic visual cultures and a look at their behaviours and customs.
