Protestantism   Currently undergoing translation

Protestantism comprises a great variety of churches belonging to five main branches, namely Lutheran, reformed, evangelical, Anglican and Pentecostal. The Fédération Protestante de France (French Protestant Federation) includes most French Protestant Churches which all claim the six great principles

  • Glory to God alone,
  • Grace alone,
  • the Bible alone,
  • Faith is essential,
  • universal priesthood,
  • never-ceasing Reformation.

Le protestantisme en régions   Currently undergoing translation

Pour des raisons historiques, le protestantisme est inégalement réparti dans les régions françaises.

Il existe en France de nombreux conservatoires du passé : musées, bibliothèques et lieux de mémoire.

Il faut aussi mentionner les pays étrangers où les protestants persécutés au XVIe siècle et lors de la Révocation de l'Édit de Nantes ont trouvé refuge.

Arts, sciences and letters

Over the years, Protestants have distinguished themselves in the arts, sciences and letters. Under the Ancien Régime, i.e. before the Revolution, there were many among engravers and jewellers, two professions traditionally linked. Some names are famous, such as Bernard Palissy, Ambroise Paré, Abraham Boss, Denis Papin and André Gide. Others are less well-known, and we hope you will discover or re-discover them.
