When told they must wait days for a bridge to be repaired, they are inspired - by recalling Boccaccios Decameron - to pass the time in a cultured manner by each telling a story every day.

The stories, however, soon degenerate into a verbal battle between the sexes, as the characters weave tales of corrupt friars, adulterous noblemen and deceitful wives. From the cynical Saffredent to the young idealist Dagoucin or the moderate Parlamente - believed to express De Navarres own views - The Heptameron provides a fascinating insight into the minds and passions of the nobility of sixteenth century France.
