Abstract
This thesis examines the relationship between text and context in a booklet describing a charivari held in Lyon, in 1566, published in a period of heightened civic social tensions between the first two episodes of armed conflict of the French Wars of Religion. By looking at the printed account of a festive procession, this thesis will explore how the Suppots de la Coquille, a group of small printers who were also prominent members of Lyon’s network of abbeys of misrule, used this publication to assert their social prestige. They embodied a nascent, urban, pragmatic petite bourgeoisie which positioned itself to avoid persecution from polarized religious factions in Lyon. This examination will yield a unique insight into the ways power struggles between urban groups are embedded in a text, and illustrate how this cultural artifact reflects the historical context of its production.
