Canadian History With New Eyes – The French Connection (Video & Outlines Only)
This course is a VIDEO PRESENTATIONONLY, of the lives of the people God used in His Providence to establish Canada.
We tell stories of the lives of the rulers (from Francis I to Louis XIV), AND their viceroys / Lieutenants General, who contributed, both positively and negatively, to the establishment of Canada.
Check out the marble frieze mounted over the left doorway of the House of Commons. There’s Francis I on one side and Louis XIV on the other. Their portraits are displayed on the walls of the foyer of the Senate Building.
The period 1515 to 1715 coincides with the persecution of the French Protestants (Huguenots)- from Francis I to Louis XIV.
Yet, God raised up a Protestant King to sit on a Catholic throne. Under his brief reign, he commissioned Huguenot noblemen to establish the colonies of Acadia and New France.
These colonies became Nova Scotia, New Brunswick, Prince Edward Island, Quebec and Ontario.
