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 méreauclassicbronzeresources@fuse.net>hows 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.
