The Revolution in Provincial France

Alan Forrest

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the political importance of the Ninth of Thermidor in the calendar of the French Revolution in Paris. It was the day when the sections failed to rise and the disillusionment of the popular movement condemned Maximilien Robespierre to defeat at the hands of his opponents in the Convention. The news about his defeat filtered uncertainly down to the provinces, which were for the most part glad that Robespierre had fallen and that the most bloodthirsty moments of the Terror were over. This chapter discusses the changes in political conditions after the Thermidor.

Keywords:   Ninth of Thermidor, French Revolution, Maximilien Robespierre, political condition, France
