The Revolution in Provincial France

Alan Forrest

Oxford University Press

This chapter examines the impact of the French Revolution on the religious sector in Aquitaine and in other French provinces. In religious terms, Aquitaine was neither very devout nor heavily dechristianized. Dechristianized regions were not expected to show any opposition to the anti-clerical policies of the Revolution. This chapter examines the intensity of religious beliefs and the reactions of different regions on the Revolution including Pays Basque, Bordelais, the Saintonge, and the Perigord.

Keywords:   French Revolution, Aquitaine, French provinces, dechristianized regions, anti-clerical policies
