It is not a book that seeks to fundamentally change our understanding of the Church.

See Author's Response. What Bergin has done is consciously choose not to focus on the Church’s role in politics. It is not a book that seeks to fundamentally change our understanding of the Church. Rather it offers a clear survey of the church in its many manifestations and forms.

Bergin argues that the French version of the Catholic Reformation showed a dynamism unrivaled elsewhere in Europe.

New Haven:Yale University Press. ISBN 978-0-300-15098-8. Scholarship on the Church and society in France is a crowded field. As Joseph Bergin readily acknowledges, the work of John McManners on the eighteenth century did not leave one stone unturned. In 1683 pages, McManners described how the church's presence or relationship evolved to the times of the French Revolution. Although more humble in format and price, Bergin 's work is no less impressive. For him, evolution is the operative concept.

This readable and engaging book by an acclaimed historian is the only wide-ranging synthesis devoted to the French experience of religious change during the period after the wars of religion up to the early Enlightenment. Joseph Bergin provides a clear, up-to-date, and thorough account of the religious history of France in the context of social, institutional, and cultural developments during the so-called long seventeenth century.

Bergin argues that the French version of the Catholic Reformation showed a dynamism unrivaled elsewhere in Europe. The traumatic experiences of the wars of religion, the continuing search within France for heresy, and the challenge of Augustinian thought successively energized its attempts at religious change. Bergin highlights the continuing interaction of church and society and shows that while the French experience was clearly allied to its European context, its path was a distinctive one.
