"Pierre Allix (1641-1717) Pastor at Charenton: Preparation for the Lord's Supper"
According to Philip Benedict, one of the key areas of Huguenot publications during the seventeenth century were devotional books designed to help prepare believers to partake of the Lord’s Supper. The pastors at the great temple at Charenton which served the Reformed community in Paris were at the forefront of these efforts. Jean Claude, the famous Charenton pastor at the time of the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, also took his turn at this type of devotional literature in 1682 with his _L’examen de soy-mesme pour se bien preparer à la communion_. Claude’s treatise experienced a brief period in the sun for the first two years after its initial publication with seven French and one English edition. His colleague Pierre Allix penned a similar work, _Preparation à la Sainte Cene_. Allix saw his own work go through three editions in French and one in English. This presentation will focus on Allix and his _Preparation à la Sainte Cene_, showing how he contributed to the literature and practice of preparing for the Lord’s Supper for French Protestants.
The presentation will be followed by a time of questions and discussion. This event will take place on Friday, August 13th at 1:00 PM Eastern time. Go here to sign up: https://www.signupgenius.com/go/70A084CA4A62FA6FA7-meeter4
