last modified Jun 30, 2017 03:41 PM

Tom Hamilton (Trinity) has just published Pierre de L’Estoile and his World in the Wars of Religion in The Past and Present Book Series with Oxford University Press. This book gives a new account of France’s sixteenth-century troubles from the perspective of an extraordinary Parisian diarist and collector, Pierre de L'Estoile (1546-1611).

Tom studied History in Cambridge, Lille, Oxford, and Paris. He returned to Cambridge in 2015 as a Junior Research Fellow at Trinity College. His work focuses on early modern French and European history. Currently he is exploring the role of criminal justice in the making of the ancien régime in France.
