From Marteau

Lionel Laborie, PhD, is a French scholar whose research explores the relationship between prophecy and diplomacy in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries, more specifically through the international impact of the Camisards after their rebellion in the CĂ©vennes mountains between 1702 and 1710.

His first book (Manchester University Press, forthcoming) looks at these 'French Prophets' as a case study of religious enthusiasm in eighteenth-century England.

His postdoctoral project follows the Camisards on their prophetic missions to Scotland, Holland, Germany, Switzerland, Sweden, Austria, Turkey, Italy and America to map their millenarian network for the first time and reassess the international legacy of the last French war of religion.
