This chapter discusses the spread of humanism in Nîmes, and then the early spread of Calvinism, particularly Calvin’s Eucharistic theology. It concludes that the professors in Nîmes’s newly established College and University of Arts were crucial to the introduction of Protestantism in Nîmes. It concludes with a discussion of declining living standards in the 1540s, and the Nîmes city council’s attempts to respond by improving poor relief.
