'Wilkinson's prose is vigorous, direct, and often very funny (particularly at the expense of bishops). There is not a dull page in the book. At the same time, its purpose is entirely serious... There could scarcely be a better way of drawing the non-specialist reader into the intricate world of seventeenth-century France' – History Review
