Chapter Summary

This index presents a list of terms of the book titled King's Sister - Queen of Dissent. It contains a list of recent volumes in the book series Studies in Medieval and Reformation Traditions. The histories of Marguerite of Navarre and of the Reformation in France before John Calvin remain unsolved riddles. The book King's Sister - Queen of Dissent attempts to address the supposed contradiction of Marguerite's deep engagement with Protestant doctrine and her failure to promote it in a concerted reform program. Most scholars have concentrated on ferreting out Marguerite's religious identity by analyzing doctrinal propositions in her poetry and prose. Recovering and interpreting the deeds and beliefs of Marguerite as well as those in her network is a principal goal of the book, because therein lies the solution to the twofold riddle of the nature of Marguerite's religion and of the early Reformation in France.

Keywords: John Calvin; Marguerite of Navarre
