Chapter Summary

This is the introductory chapter of this book, which clarifies some aspects of Clément Marot's life and work which are related to religious issues. This objective is modest and the ambition restrained because it is very hard to assess anything with certainty about someone who lived almost 500 years ago; and it becomes almost impossible when religious issues are concerned, a highly sensitive matter in sixteenth-century France: when the stakes are burning, one heeds ones tongue. The book concentrates on Marot's Psalm paraphrases, which for all kinds of reasons are often excluded in assessments of Marot's religious stance. The chapter presents an overview of how the other chapters of the book are organised.

Keywords: Clément Marot; Psalm paraphrases; sixteenth-century France
