Chapter Summary

The Pays de Vaud, on the northern and eastern shores of Lake Geneva and on the east bank of the upper Rhône, might appear to have been the ideal land of exile for French Protestants. The statistics and the financial impact of French exile have been studied recently, but relatively little attention has been given to the personal experiences of the refugees and in particular to their expressions of belief. There are, however, several volumes of homologued wills for Lausanne and more fragmentary testamentary records for other towns; the habit of giving precise details of the social status and origins of testators greatly assists the historian. This chapter discusses the structure of the refuge and briefly addresses the questions raised by Élie Marion, one of the infamous 'French prophets', about the kind of ideology reaching Lausanne and about the two-way traffic between England and Lausanne or Vevey.
