Religion Prétendue Réformée

Official term for the Calvinistic obedience in France. It appears in the text drawn up for the Peace of Longjumeau in 1568 and appears in the various edicts of pacification until the Edict of Nantes.
An official term of this nature is an insult and Protestants are strongly opposed to it. The semantic struggle continues throughout the XVIIth and XVIIIth centuries.
