In this third volume of Pierre de l’Estoile’s journal, the author experiences France’s slow emergence out of war, and a quickening of the country’s political renewal under Henry IV. While the king continues to negotiate for peace with individual cities and forces, famine, epidemics, and strife rack the capital. A glimmer of light shines, however, as negotiations lead to the Edict of Nantes and a peaceful coexistence for French Protestants and Catholics.
