Saint Jean Du Gard 4164 hectares, 2815 inhabitants
On May 8, 1791, St Jean de Gardonnenque became St Jean du Gard. Although there are various vestiges in the commune attesting to human settlement since the Neolithic period, the first known written mention of St Jean de Gardonnenque is a papal bull of 1119 relating to a priory founded by the Benedictines of St-Gilles.
The village has developed over the centuries along the main communication route, the present-day Corniche des Cévennes, which in the Middle Ages was called “Grand chemin d’Anduze au Gévaudan”. Tanners, potters, and especially wool craftsmen, gave early to St-Jean its commercial vocation.
In the middle of the 15th century, almost the entire population of Saint Jean converted to the “Reformation”. From then on, and especially after the Revocation of the Edict of Nantes in 1685, it experienced the torments of persecution, clandestinity, resistance, sedition… which characterize the history of the Cévennes Protestants, the most famous episode of which is undoubtedly the Camisards’ war.
Olive trees, vines and chestnut trees have long been the pillars of local agriculture. The strong development of mulberry cultivation, silkworm breeding and silk activities brought work and wealth from the middle of the 16th century, so much so that in 1856 the commune had 23 silk workshops employing 1090 women and 150 men. The last of these mills closed in 1965.
