ABSTRACT
The main thesis put forward in the book “The Church in the shadow of the guillotine; French Catholicism to the French Revolution (1789–1815)” is the very well justified conviction that the French Revolution contributed to shaping the modern image of the papacy. This thesis, of course, has wider implications and its main meta-political premise is the idea that during a period of chaos there is an increased need for order; often ensconced in tradition.
