This chapter describes Jean-Marie Roland's very different youth: the youngest of ten in an old Beaujolais family, with four clerical brothers. A rebel against his background, he becomes a trainee inspector of manufactures in Rouen: enforcing quality control on textile manufactures. Only modestly paid, he finds a surrogate family in a circle of young people, and supplements his interrupted Jesuit schooling by scientific courses and private reading.

Keywords:   Baujolais, Rouen, textile manufactures, Jesuit schooling, scientific courses
