"Tea & Talks 1: Marie Durand: Prisoner of Faith in the Tour de Constance"

3pm

£10 plus booking fee (this includes a cup of tea and cake)

For French protestants, Marie Durand, a notable Huguenot, has come to symbolise those who resisted religious intolerance in France after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes (1685). Refusing to abdure the Protestant faith, at the age of 18 she was arrested after hosting an unlawful assembly in her house and thereafter imprisoned for 38 years in the Tour de Constance in the southern French town of Aigues-Mortes. This talk will focus on the story of her life, her faith and courage, which enabled her to give hope and comfort to her fellow prisoners during their long period of incarceration.
