Festival talks by Kate Mosse

29. THE BURNING CHAMBERS: THE FRENCH WARS OF RELIGION – HUGUENOTS v CATHOLICS

Generously supported by
THE CRESCENT TRUST

Kate Mosse will discuss one of the darkest periods in French history. The Wars of Religion began in 1562 and ended, after millions had been massacred or displaced, with the Edict of Nantes in 1598. She will examine the power struggles between Catholic and Protestant factions in Carcassonne, Paris, London and Amsterdam and how this dark history of religious intolerance and diaspora inspired her epic series of novels.
