Agen Arnaud Bru 1705, in-12,(8)-532 pages-(2 ff. de privilège. (manque les pages 5 à 20). Vélin époque , dos titré manuellement. Manuel à l'usage des protestants nouvellement convertis à la foi catholique composé par feu Mre Grimard, par ordre de feu messire Jules de Mascaron et publié de l'autorité de monseigneur l'illustrissime & reverendissime François Hebert, evêque comte d'Agen. Rapport de l’abbé Grimard à l’Intendant de Bordeaux. Text transcribed and revised by Claude Martin and Clair Morizet. In 1699, intendants were ordered to draw up the enumeration of those who converted their religion from Protestant to Catholic.The intendant at Bordeaux at the time was Louis Bazin de Bezons.The priests in charge of the civil registration were doing that work very conscientiously.The priest of Clairac was Guillaume Grimard,who had just written a catechism for the newly converted Catholics.He knew the local situation well and wrote in 1701 to the new Intendant to inform him. This text is exciting notably in showing the extent to which education is the basis of religion and in reminding people of the importance of converting key people whose conversion would be an example for others. The text al so describes some so-called bad habits of the Newly Converted.
