Soule (Basque: Zuberoa; Zuberoan Basque: Xiberoa or Xiberua; Gascon: Sola) is a former viscounty and French province and part of the present day Pyrénées-Atlantiques département. It is divided into two cantons of the arrondissement (district) of Oloron-Sainte-Marie (Mauleon-Licharre and Tardets-Sorholus), and a part of the canton of Saint Palais (arrondissement of Bayonne).

Its provincial capital is Mauléon, which fused with Licharre in 1841 to form "Mauléon-Licharre", but today is often known as "Mauléon-Soule". Historically, Soule is the smallest province of the Basque Country (785 km2.). Its population has been decreasing (23,803 in 1901; 16,006 in 1990; 15,535 in 1999).

Famous quotes containing the word soule:

    My soule her wings doth spread
    And heaven-ward flies,
    Th’ Almighty’s Mysteries to read
    In the large volumes of the skies.
    William Habington (1605–1654)

    We thinke that Paradise and Calvarie,
    Christs Crosse, and Adams tree, stood in one place;
    Looke, Lord, and finde both Adams met in me;
    As the first Adams sweat surrounds my face,
    May the last Adams blood my soule embrace.
    John Donne (1572–1631)

    And here the precious dust is layd;
    Whose purely temper’d Clay was made
    So fine, that it the guest betray’d.

    Else the soule grew so fast within,
    It broke the outward shell of sinne,
    And so was hatch’d a Cherubin.
    Thomas Carew (1589–1639)
