The Colloquy of Montbeliard: Religion and Politics in the Sixteenth Century

By Jill P. Raitt | Go to book overview

neighbors, especially their Roman Catholic neighbors, occasion to accuse them of inconstancy with regard to religion. The problems of the bourgeoisie of Montbéliard with their count continued into the next century. Specific instances occurred in 1586, 1587, 1588, 1589, 116 1594, 117 and 1613. 118 The battle between the bourgeoisie and Frederick came to a head in 1586-1587 but apparently did not settle the issue of a confession of faith for the French church in Montbéliard, but that is part of the story that follows the colloquy.

P. A2(v) of the preface attributed to Count Frederick says that Frederick invited the two theologians to engage in a colloquy in his castle. P. Al(r) of Andreae's account of the colloquy itself informs us: "Anno Domini 1586. die 13. lanuarii, cum serenissimi Domini, D. Henrici Regis Navarreni Legatus, N. Baro de Cleroan Stutgardiam venisset, & D. lacobum Andreae quoque adesse cognovisset: misso ad ipsum nuncio viro Nobili, eum ad Colloquium familiare vocavit." (See ch. 2, pp. 49ff. for a discussion of the meaning of this invitation through Navarre's agent, the baron de Clervant.) For a discussion of the letter mentioned in the title see Chap. 6, pp. 160-64.
