Chapter Summary

The events of the years 1533 to 1536—Roussel’s preaching at the Louvre, Nicolas Cop’s All Saints’ Day oration, the Affair of the Placards, as well as the Du Bellay brothers' campaign to bring Melanchthon, Bucer, and Caspar Hedio to France for a religious colloquy are among the best known of the early Reformation in France. However, the interconnection between these events and more particularly Marguerite and her network's responsibility for orchestrating them has yet to be established. This chapter provides brief recapitulations of the more extensive treatments of other scholars. As for Marguerite and her network's full role and success in spreading heterodox ideas during the 1530s and onward, the chapter offers only some benchmarks for future assessment. A gradual nation-wide buildup prepared the way for the era-defining struggle between evangelicals and conservatives at Paris.
