"[An] enjoyable and authoritative account, which, in telling the story of the Huguenots, doubles as a fine political and religious history of France over the course of two troubled centuries.”—Peter Marshall, Literary Review
“A rich distillation of French history.”—David J. Davis, Books and Culture
Geoffrey Treasures thoughtful study charts the story of these Protestants, known as Huguenots, across nearly two centuries. It is a history of theology and high politics more than a ground-level study of Huguenot life, beginning with illuminating potted histories of the French monarchy and movements for religious reform.'John Gallagher, The Sunday Telegraph
Winner of the 2014 National Huguenot Society award for the best original work of scholarship covering any aspect of the Huguenot movement.
A richly detailed study of the politics and personalities of a religious minority.P D Smith, The Guardian
"With clarity and depth . . . Treasures work tells brilliantly the history and life experience that the Huguenots carried out of France."James Blackburn, New York History Blog
