Chapter Summary

Clément Marot, François Rabelais, and Marguerite of Navarre: they are among the seminal vernacular writers of the early Renaissance in France. This chapter begins symbolically with the greatest French poet of the first half of the century, Clément Marot. The Sons of Apollo may have been in the service of Christ, but as the title Marot chose for them proclaims, they were renowned in their own day, and have been most appreciated in generations since, for their secular, profane, and, as some have suggested, even irreligious writings. Many Sons of Apollo shared Marguerite's desire that their works would give religious edification. In conclusion, the chapter gains a clear picture of the evolution of the religious contest that led to the Wars of Religion.
