Between November 1706 and March 1707, Huguenot exiles in London offered depositions recounting their experience of worshiping at illicit assemblies in the mountain valley of the Cevennes in southeastern France for many years after the 1685 revocation of the edict of Nantes made Protestantism illegal. Cosmos, who is not further identified, uses the 1707 publication of those depositions to reconstruct the outbreaks of prophesying at forbidden assemblies after 1700 and the immediate origins of the Camisard war, which broke out in the region in July 1702.
