Être soldat et protestant après l’édit de Fontainebleau en France, une double marginalité (1685-1787)

Abstract : Study the place of soldiers in general and Protestant soldiers in particular in the society of the Ancien Régime in France. I will focus on the edict of Fontainebleau or the Revocation (1685) which repealed the edict of Nantes’ regime and then banned Protestant worship in France as well as the edict of Versailles (also known as Tolerance) of 1787 which gave civil status to Protestants and the possibility to exist in the kingdom without being disrupted because of their religion. Soldiers and Protestants were marginals during the “Ancien Régime” ; however, in the French Royal Army there were also Protestant soldiers who fought for the “Très-Chrétien” King, defender of the Catholic Church. Their position in the society of the Ancien Régime and how they were at the margins are analysed ; but also how they could integrate themselves into the society of the Ancien Régime during specific circumstances.
