Protestant church courts in southern France sought to control women’s lives with an extremely strict moral code. Their records reveal more than just vivid tales of marital quarrels, illegitimate pregnancies, rape, fights and malicious gossip, says historian and TV presenter SUZANNAH LIPSCOMB. Ironically, they also highlight the courageous and vocal struggle of everyday women confronted by all the powers of 16th-century society, stacked up to pass God’s judgment upon them.
