THE REVOCATION OF THE EDICT OF NANTES,
AND ENGLISH REVOLUTION STAGE

Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (Révocation Edit de Nantes) 22 Octobre 1685

Revocation of the Edict of Nantes

HERE we reach the beginning of the last act of the Papal tragedy. Louis XIV sat on the throne of France at Versailles. At his side was Madame de Maintenon. Behind her stood the Jesuit Confessor Pere la Chaise. Behind him again the Pope, and his inspirer the Prince of Darkness.

In Piedmont the trembling remnant of Protestants left by the great massacre of 1655 still clung to their native rocks, and Alpine fastnesses.

In England James II was struggling to restore Papal supremacy, and enslave the children of the Puritans who had bought their liberties at so great a price.

“… This book [Revelation] presents the church as exposed to tribulation, and having need of patience, as bearing a painful and dangerous testimony to Christ, and as enduring temptation and persecution, right up to the time of the advent. Its author was, in his own person, a representative of the church in these respects. ‘I John, who also am your brother, and companion in tribulation, and in the kingdom and patience of Jesus Christ, was in the isle that is called Patmos, for the word of God, and for the testimony of Jesus Christ.’ Never in the whole course of the book do we see the saints exalted and reigning, until after the second advent …”
