Freedom in Huguenot Doctrine by G. L. Pinette The French trace the roots of their ideals of personal freedom and democratic government back into the Middle Ages when municipal leaders like Etienne Marcel made the first attempts to limit royal power through popular represen- tation. Yet as important as these initial stirrings of political consciousness were, the first testimonials of a fully developed political thought appeared in France as a result of the Reformation, but also owe much to the Renaissance with its reverence for classic writings. The

On the third Thursday of August in 1636, as a French army was beginning a campaign to free the town of Corbie from the Spanish – who had captured it just days earlier – the French Reformed (or Huguenot) minister Jean Daillé was leading his Parisian congregation, along with his colleagues, in a special service of worship. This service, which included three sermons from three separate ministers – Daillé included – was the functional focal point of Huguenot devotion on this day, devotion that also included fasting, prayers, and Psalm singing; and all of it was

Wagner Admires Meyerbeer (Les Huguenots) RICHARD WAGNER TRANSLATED, INTRODUCED, AND ANNOTATED BY THOMAS S. GREY The vituperation heaped upon the German-Jewish composer of French grand opera, Giacomo Meyerbeer, by Richard Wagner in such writings as “Judaism in Music” (1850) or Opera and Drama (1852) knew no bounds. Professional envy mixed with an element of persecution mania, exagger- ated aesthetic convictions, and racial bigotry all contributed to this astounding flow of invective. In the notorious “Judaism in Music,” Wagner does not even deign to speak the name

The remainder of his master's reign was devoted to the execution of the prelate's cherished plans for the abasement of the House of Hapsburg. With the history of these events our narrative does not immediately con- cern itself. Yet it is

C H A P T E R T E N A Huguenot Half- century By comparison with the sound and fury of the Jansenist and gallican disputes, the experiences of France’s Protestants during the decades after they finally lost their political and military power in the late 1620s seem both harder to pin down and less noteworthy. The extended mid- century from 1630 to about 1680 could compete neither with the fortitude displayed by the generation which defended the cause at La Rochelle in the 1620s, nor with the tragic but often heroic resistance, in very changed circumstances

María A. SchenkeveId-van der Dussen The Huguenot Psalter in the Dutch Republic The Functions of Rhymed Psalm Versions in the Seventeenth Century For a broad overview of the Dutch rhymed psalm versions in the seventeenth century I take as my point of departure a proposition that I am sure is correct, even if I have not really researched it. My contention is that nowhere in Europe, or even in the world, as many translations of the Huguenot Psalter have been published as have appeared in the Netherlands.1 This proliferation of translated psalm texts resulted
