Edict of Nantes

The charter of protestant rights was the Edict of Nantes on April 13, 1598. It was in effect for nearly a hundred years, until revoked by the absolutist, Louis XIV in 1685 on the grounds that it endangered the unity and religious peace of the state. As a general rule it can be stated that Germanic-speaking countries adopted Protestantism, while the Latin speaking nations remained faithful to the old religion.

The Edict of Nantes was a landmark in the history of toleration and freedom. It provided that the Protestants might have liberty of conscience anywhere in France, and children of both religions were to be admitted to all hospitals and universities and schools. Meanwhile the Catholics were not only given the recognition of Catholicism as the established religion of France, but one practical boon - freedom for the mass in Protestant towns.
[26, 69]

The Lord has given Christians the grace to reconcile the children to their Fathers
