Chapter Summary

The convulsions that afflicted the western Catholic Church in the wake of the Protestant Reformation were intense in France and the Netherlands. Both France and the Netherlands could boast a robust and highly sophisticated print culture. This chapter attempts to open up what proves to be an exceptionally rich field of study. It draws upon both recently completed and ongoing bibliographical projects. In the process it gathers together a body of literature, some familiar, some entirely unknown and indeed newly discovered, that has never before been considered as a unity. The chapter offers some insights into the role of print in shaping popular attitudes during the wars of religion, not least on the far less heavily research Catholic side. The connections between the political and intellectual elites of France and the Netherlands were an established fact long before the political events that form the major focus of the chapter.
