BRILL, Nov 1, 1994 - History - 227 pages
After the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, the Huguenot refugees who spread throughout Protestant Europe contributed greatly to the development of new political ideas and realities, ranging from the theory and practice of freedom of the press through religious toleration and early modern economic discourse. The essays in this volume throw new light on their work.
