Pierre de L’Estoile tells the story of several long months of confinement and resistance in this volume. Between 1592 and 1594, an obsessive enthusiasm takes hold of the Leaguers who reign in a climate of terror over Paris. The Parisian preachers threaten daily the king Henri IV as well as the Catholics who discretely support his conversion and his acceptance. Denunciation, suspicion, violence and social disorder reign in the capital. The priest leaguers appear as zealous judges from their pulpit, taking the people as witnesses on the necessity of stripping from their power the ungodly and the tempid. The writer describes the verbal violence of these ecclesiastics and makes himself the exegete of their crude doctrinal abuse. Pierre de L’Estoile’s volume can be seen as valuable testimony to League’s General Assembly of 1593: it ends in confusion and its work proves to be useless with Henri IV’s abjuration. After two military sieges of Paris, a great deal of negotiation, conducted secretly, a conversion guided by learned clergy, the sovereign arrives in Paris. His attitude with regards to his former critics is deliberate, straightforward. Some activist Leaguers are still banished from Paris. However, instead of repression and revenge, the king prefers the use of laughter and mockery either openly or more discreetly with regards to his former enemies.
