This volume deals with the intellectual Huguenot Refuge (ca 1680-1780), discussing its philosophical, theological, historical, and literary aspects in European context. It uses Berlin as its regional point of departure: In the French-Protestant community of Berlin, the erudites rapidly established networks which pursued a very wide range of interest, communicating with every Protestant scholar who might contribute to the dissemination of Enlightened thought.The first part of the book, therefore, introduces the biggest and most complex centre of the Refuge in Germany. Whereas the second and third part examine different fields of knowledge, the fourth focusses on the topic of dissemination. All contributions present new material-be it on 'Huguenot' hermeneutics, journalism, history, or on the relationship between Berlin and the United Provinces.Table of ContentsContributors include: John Christian Laursen, Fiammetta Palladini, Herbert Jaumann, Annett Volmer, Joris van Ejnatten, Fabrizio Lomonaco.
