  1. Dévots

    Dévots was the name given in France in the first half of the 17th century to a party following a Catholic policy of opposition to the Protestants inside France and alliance with the Catholic Habsburg Monarchy abroad. Attached to the privileges of the intermediary organs of power between the king and the people, the dévots opposed the development of an absolute monarchy, rejecting a centralized government in the hands of commoners from the bourgeoisie appointed by the king. They inspired the policy of the regent Marie de Médicis and later opposed Cardinal Richelieu, who was pushing for an absolute monarchy and sought an alliance with Protestant powers against the Habsburg Austria and Spain. Although the Day of the Dupes, which confirmed Richelieu as prime minister, marked their political failure, the dévots nonetheless remained very influential. Their influence was felt through the Society of the Holy Sacrament until 1665.
