Additional English language sources available in the library include:

  • Pierre de L’Estoile, Mémoires-Journaux (translated by Nancy L. Roelker as The Paris of Henri IV as seen by Pierre de L’Estoile, 1958)

Both texts are also available in French.

If you want to engage more extensively with French language primary sources, please ask me for suggestions. One of the most widely used is:

  • Histoire ecclésiastique des églises réformées au royaume de France (3 vols., attributed to Théodore de Bèze; eds. Baum, Cunitz and Reuss, 1974; reprint of 1883-89 edn) which resides on my office shelf, so just ask if you would like to consult it.

Also useful are these collections and contextualisation of contemporary images:

  • The French Renaissance in Prints from the Bibliothèque Nationale de France (1994-95)
  • Coligny: Protestants et Catholiques en France au XVIe siècle (Direction des archives de France, 1972)
