Minister of the Republic Grain and Museums

Marriage and Revolution

Oxford University Press

Despite the split between Brissotins (or ‘Girondins’) and Montagnards in the Convention, briefly discussed, divisions do not concern all policy: this chapter considers Roland's daily work as Interior minister, for the republic in autumn 1792. It takes two case studies in particular : subsistence and food supplies, and the reorganization of the Louvre and the National Library. Exploring the administration involved suggests that ministerial workload and implementation of decrees has been underestimated historically. In particular, the Interior ministry carries huge responsibility for dealings with the provinces on a range of issues.
