Biography/Description

J. was a well-known French Protestant jurist and parlementaire of Toulouse. He figures prominently in, and his account is the source of, Natalie Davis’s The Return of Martin Guerre (Cambridge [MA] 1983). His production, however, is much larger than that, and has been the subject of 12-volume treatment by A. London Fell. J. was a victim of the St. Bartholomew’s Day massacre in 1572.
