Pierre de L'Estoile and his World in the Wars of Religion

Tom Hamilton

The Past and Present Book Series

  • A new history of the French Wars of Religion from the perspective of the period's great diarist and collector, Pierre de L'Estoile (1546-1611)
  • The first monograph study of L'Estoile in any language
  • Interprets L'Estoile not as a neutral repository of information but as an engaged compiler of sources that have shaped historians' accounts ever since
  • Provides an essential companion and reference book for scholars of this period using L'Estoile's sources in their research
  • Sheds new light on the Parisian society of royal-office holders, with wide-ranging archival research presented in accessible tables
  • Offers unparalleled evidence about the circulation and reception of books, news, and pictures in the early modern period
