Documents – XVIIe siècle

Les églises protestantes font preuve de vitalité jusqu’en 1660. A partir de cette date, les mesures prises au nom du roi contre «ceux de la Religion Prétendue Réformée» (R.P.R.) se multiplient jusqu’à la révocation de l’édit de Nantes en 1685. La plupart des protestants abjurent et deviennent des «nouveaux catholiques». La pratique clandestine de leur religion dans des assemblées au «Désert» sous la conduite de «prédicants» est sévèrement réprimée.
