Book Announcement: Fealty and Fidelity: the Lazarists of Bourbon France, 1660-1736.

Dear Colleagues

I am pleased to announce the publication of my book Fealty and Fidelity: the Lazarists of Bourbon France, 1660-1736, with Ashgate. The book provides a major critical investigation of the followers of Vincent de Paul, one of the French Catholic reform's most decisive contributors. It uncovers rich new information on missionary activity and crown agency in France and two highly-neglected Indian Ocean French colonies during the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV. The book draws on a great number of unseen archival records, and both teachers and students of early modern France will enjoy it.

To read select material or order a copy please visit  http://www.ashgate.com/isbn/9781472444783.

If any of our colleagues is interested in purchasing a copy for themselves or their libraries, I would be glad to share the promotional code, which entitles the user to 50% off the price. Please don't hesitate to email me at sean.smith@ucd.ie

All good wishes

Sean
