Defenders of The Faith: The Case of Nicole Grenier

The full text article is not available.

Abstract:

French Catholic apologists were slower and more reluctant than religious reformers to employ the vernacular and the printed word to spread their message. They were not, however, as slow as has been suggested. The article discusses a series of previously neglected works written in dialogue form in the late 1540s and early 1550s by Nicole Grenier, the first serious, committed French Catholic apologist. Grenier was considered an effective controversialist by contemporaries, and his works were reprinted in multiple versions, continuing to be issued even after the advent of better-known apologetic works.
