Description

Christianity in Provence brought persecution and conflict. From the first century AD, it also inspired remarkable legends, historical celebrations and imposing architecture.

Archaeological excavations in the Luberon Valley at Merindol reveal the terrible carnage from the wars of heresy and religion in the 16th century. Yet Les Baux-de-Provence, St Gilles and Avignon have left legacies of beauty and intrigue.

In 1942, members of the Maquis, the fighting arm of the wartime Resistance in World War II, were again seen by some as the new heretics against the Catholic Vichy regime.
