Huguenot méreau Huguenot méreau

The méreau (plural méreaux) is a circular token which the Huguenots used in France from the 1550's to the mid 19th century. During holy communion an elder would give, before the service, a méreau to each parishioner who qualified to receive the sacrament. The others, who did not attend catechism regularly or had been admonished by the consistory, would not receive a méreau. During the service each individual would hand his méreau to an elder standing next to the communion table before receiving bread and wine.

On this méreau Christ is depicted as a shepherd, with a staff in His left hand, holding a trumpet in His right hand. Two fig trees, one on either side of Christ, with a cross and banner are also shown. A flock of sheep, symbolising His followers, is shown at His feet.

The back side shows an open bible, which is opened at St. Luke chapter 12, verse 32, saying in French: "Have no fear little flock; for it is your Father's good pleasure to give you the kingdom." Above the Bible is a symbolic shining sun and six stars.
