Lutheranism, Fabrism and Calvinism in the Royal Courts of France and of Navarre and in the Ducal Court of FerraraClment Marot (1496-1544), a poet of distinction, is a unique witness to the effect of the Bible on French-speaking courts. He was admired by Francis I, protected by Margaret of Navarre, and by Rene, the French Duchess of Ferrara. His translations of the psalms came to dominate Huguenot worship, inspiring many imitators, not least in English. His commitment to Lutheran theology shines through his personal poetry-once his Scriptural allusions are recognised and interpreted.Clment Marot: A Renaissance Poet Discovers the Gospel is a fundamental expansion and recasting for an English-reading public of Marot vanglique, Michael Screech's study which brings out the appeal to this court poet of Lutheranism and martyrdom. Chapters also examine aspects of Marot's cult of the Virgin and a possible shift from Lutheranism to Calvinism.'This is an erudite work that helps shed light on the work of a little studied figure of the early Reformation.'Larissa Taylor, Renaissance Quarterly'This elegant study shows once again Professor Screech's masterful command of biblical texts and Reformation theology. The study merits reading as well by students of early modern France for insight into how a French Renaissance courtier's life and writings were deeply influenced by the teachings of continental Evangelicals and Reformers.'Anne R. Larsen, Sixteenth Century Journal, 1994.
