See my itinerary

The museum evokes the life of the philosopher, from his childhood in Carla to his death in exile in Rotterdam, as well as his intellectual and biographical journey, all against a background of constant and multiple religious repression which characterizes the reign of Louis XIV and more generally, the history of Protestantism in France in the XNUMXth century.
Persecuted and exiled for reasons of religion, he left a considerable body of work both in terms of volume and content, which is marked by a very strong desire for freedom of conscience and tolerance.
Pierre Bayle is a philosopher and a major thinker of our history in whom the Encyclopedists saw a powerful precursor and inspirer.
It is indeed, in the century of Louis XIV of an authentic scout of the Philosophy of the Enlightenment as well as a humanist of the most intelligent.
The visit of the museum can be supplemented by that of the temple, located a stone's throw away, whose architecture is inspired by the first temples of the Reformation, but also by that of the XNUMXth century church of a rather surprising style.

For 2024: Partial opening in spring, with the possibility of making an appointment. Hours to be defined for the summer.
