Over the course of the nineteenth century both interest in and knowledge about the life and writings of Calvin increased substantially among French Protestants, for whom he was a distant, little understood figure in 1800. Theologically divided between liberals and evangelicals, the Protestant minority in France found common cause in the defense of Calvin’s reputation against Catholic attacks through the work of the Société de l’histoire du Protestantisme français, a meeting ground for members of the rival tendencies. Under the influence first of Emile Doumergue, then of Karl Barth, French Reformed theology became increasingly marked by Calvin’s own ideas between 1890 and 1970.
