Summary "Liturgy, Politics, and Salvation: The Catholic League in Paris and the Nature of Catholic Reform, 1540-1630 analyzes the contest between the Catholic League and the sovereign authority of the French crown from the perspective of the culture wars that were part of the European Reformation. In Paris, the partisan politics of the period were inseparable from broader religious debates in which Huguenots, Politiques, and zealous Catholics clashed over the proper relations between the sacred and the profane. Ramsey employs a new method for the analysis of symbolic behaviors to reveal the relations between political and religious engagement and cultural change at a crucial moment in the development of the French nation."--Jacket.
