Abel Matthieu "sieur des Moystardières" (ca 1520-ca1572) tried to give the French language a legal structure. The publication of the “Devis” is part of a period of linguistic reflection that took place in the 16th century. Mathieu advocated a language that is made up of simple, skilfully arranged terms. He saw a link between the ability to harmoniously bring together words and intelligence, or rather the mind.
The Parisian printer Richard Breton (1524-1571) was essentially at the service of the Protestant cause.
