Chapter Summary

A final example of Peter Martyr Vermigli's legacy is the late 17th century battle between Louis Maimbourg and Pierre Jurieu. In 1682 Louis Maimbourg, a disgraced Jesuit priest wanting to rebuild his reputation, wrote his pocket-sizedHistoire du Calvinisme in which he traced the rise and proliferation of the Protestant sects in France and Europe. During his successive academic appointments Vermigli kept up a vibrant epistolary relationship with the leaders of the French Reformation. His interest soon took him into contact with French Reform directly in his presence at the Colloquy of Poissy. Vermigli's role in the colloquy of Poissy is the most studied aspect of his participation in French Reform. Peter Martyr Vermigli's relationship with the French Reformation is seen in most literature as short-lived and not very substantial. Yet, this common picture of Vermigli's influence is a substantial understatement of what can be seen in the actual sources.
