Pierre Bayle came of a Protestant family and was reared in a Protestant region; his father was pastor in the town church; his elder brother entered the ministry. In 1669, at the age of twenty-two, Bayle left the Protestant Academy of Puylaurens, where he had been studying with the intention of becoming a pastor, and journeyed to Toulouse where he was converted to Catholicism under the patronage of the Jesuits.
