I love your handle-- sounds very apt for someone investigating that particular 'empire in the Philippines'. I believe the French Revolution grew up out of a grassroots/"rational"/intellectual disgust with the same source of corruption.
I found that the Huguenots are influenced by John Calvin who advocates predestination. Persecuted in France like Calvin himself who was driven out. Some Calvin ideas are found in the King James version of bible, and among Puritans.

Thank you, sallybea-- that I did not know. I just did a quick peak at Wiki on the subject and note that F.W. de Klerk had Huguenot roots... oh.

Thanks Poeticjazztice! I find it interesting that many of us learned about certain Protestant reforms, but not others. I'll be over to see you at "your place" and perhaps you can tell me more about some of what you found out when writing your book.
