Learn@QFHS - The Huguenots: the almost forgotten people

Learn@QFHS - The Huguenots: the almost forgotten people
Starts: 23 Jul 2022 at 2:00 PM
Ends: 23 Jul 2022 at 3:30 PM
Notes: The Huguenots were the Protestants of France. In the sixteenth, seventeenth, and eighteenth centuries, they suffered severe persecution in their homeland because they did not follow the Catholic faith. In 1685 King Louis XIV revoked the Edict of Nantes, making it illegal to be a Protestant in France. At that time, almost 200,000 Huguenots fled France to any country that would take them, principally Switzerland, Germany, the Netherlands, England, and Ireland. Some even got as far as the American colonies and South Africa. Everywhere they went, they took their religious faith, their artisanal skills, and their work ethic. They contributed enormously to every country which welcomed them.
