HomeRéseaux et pratiques de la clandestinité au temps des guerres de religion

*  *  *

Published on Thursday, June 06, 2019 by Anastasia Giardinelli

Summary

The French religious wars of the late sixteenth century provided a ready platform for the use of secretive means by which all parties (Protestant, Catholic, Royalist, Leaguer) protected and perpetuated their cause, as well as transmitted messages and news across France and to their allies abroad, generating a culture of clandestine networks. The French crown, other foreign powers and their ambassadors also made use of such practices. In practical terms, the use of ciphers and pseudonyms allowed for the safe passage of messages and messengers. For individuals, finding means of concealment for their clandestine activities was vital, especially in the towns. Intelligence-gathering and espionage sought to counter as well as to support such practices. This workshop seeks to uncover the clandestinity of the sixteenth century in order to enhance and deepen our understanding of this contested period in French history.
