The Huguenot connection

The Huguenot connection

(p.33) 2 The Huguenot connection
The English Republican tradition and eighteenth-century France

Rachel Hammersley

Manchester University Press

This chapter focuses on the small group of Huguenot exiles who, in alliance with the Real Whigs, played a crucial role in bringing English republican and commonwealth works to the attention of the French-speaking world. The Huguenot connection was one means by which commonwealth ideas came to play an important role in continental European political thought. The Real Whigs, who were themselves deeply concerned about European affairs, were closely associated with a network of Huguenot writers, translators and booksellers. It was via the translations and reviews produced by these French Protestant exiles that the key works of the English republican tradition entered France and became known to a francophone audience.

Keywords:   Huguenot exiles, Real Whigs, English republican, French-speaking world, French Protestant exiles, commonwealth ideas
