First published in 1866, "A History of the Huguenots" is an essential historic work by W. Carlos Martyn, an excellent and inspiring tale of the Huguenots, an ethnoreligious group of French Protestants.
John Calvin was a Frenchman and his reformation in the French speaking Swiss city of Geneva had a profound impact on his homeland. The story of these heroic Christians and their struggles for the faith is an edifying exercise for those who desire to know more of their spiritual heritage. The book starts with the history of pre-Reformation France covering the earlier reform movements of the Vaudois, and Cathars, etc. This less well known and fascinating part of history is a valuable addition to this work.
