Bibliography, etc. Note: Includes bibliographical references and index.
Summary, etc.: This text examines how Catholic reformers envisioned and implemented changes to monastic life in late sixteenth- and early seventeenth-century France. Scholars of France's Catholic Reformation have tended to focus on the movement's later stages and, taking a top-down approach, view it from the perspective of activist clerics seeking to impose a fixed idea of religious life. This study focuses instead on the movement's beginnings and explores the aims and tactics of proponents of reform from different but overlapping perspectives. The six case studies draw from three regions - Paris, Provence, and Languedoc.
