Chapter Summary

Research into the history of irenicism during the French wars of religion, in particular study of the significance of the Colloquy at Poissy, was given a powerful boost when scholars of ecclesiastical history and the history of dogma began taking account of their own position. This innovation in methodology is in line with some of the insights of "New Historicism" and opens up the possibility of investigating whether the principal irenical text of the period, Georgius Cassander's De officio pii viri, and in particular the various reprints of that tract, can be interpreted according to the principles of New Philology. Cassander's way was the via regia, the "majestic highway" to peace, to which he directed the faithful and which was intended to bring the Catholic church beyond the misleading sideroads of the Reformation and the existing Roman-Catholic church.

Keywords: Colloquy; French wars; Georgius Cassander's De officio pii viri; irenicism; New Historicism; New Philology; Peace; Protestants; Roman-Catholic church
