The 14 essays in this collection provide scholars outside of Quebec a glimpse of the history of French-speaking Protestantism in the province that is otherwise scattered in English-language journals or only published in French. Reprinted articles, though published only since the turn of the century, have been updated to reflect the current state of research. The topics include the presence and marginalization of French-speaking Protestants in Quebec, the French monarchy and Protestant immigration to Canada before 1760, the Colonial Church and School Society and the early years of the Sabrevois Mission 1850-84, French Protestants and Roman Catholics in the 19th century, French Protestant missionary activity in Quebec from the 1850s to the 1950s, French Adventism in Quebec, and a brief socio-demographic portrait of French-speaking Protestantism in the 19h and 20th centuries.
