Chapter Summary

A crucial event in Clément Marots life was his imprisonment early 1526, connected with an accusation of heresy: Lutheranism, a label that could be applied to anyone who was unruly in matters of religion. The fact that Marot had to flee in the aftermath of the Broadsheet Affair (Affaire des Placards) is telling, not necessarily concerning his views on the issue, but certainly concerning his prominence on the scene: he simply was considered to be one of the main spokesmen of Lutheranism, which in terms of dogma history had by then become not only an imprecise term but simply erroneous, since the broadsheets denounced the holy Mass in a Zwinglian way that would have horrified Luther. In 1535 Marot was considered a notorious Lutheran, a heretic.
