(p.118) The Sacred Heart and the Return of Kings
France and the Cult of the Sacred Heart

This chapter focuses on the restoration of the Bourbon monarchy and the role of the Sacred Heart during the Restoration period in France. The first monarch to rule France after the French Revolution was Louis XVIII, the brother of King Louis XVI. He introduced the Charter of 1814, which recognized basic civil liberties and created a bicameral legislature. The chapter notes that the Sacred Heart was not as prominent as it had been. It shows how Restoration France looked at the Vendée, which was through the massive portraits that were unveiled in various salons. This is followed by a section on one of the most ambitious itinerant propaganda campaigns ever undertaken in French history: the Société des Missions, a domestic missionary campaign that aimed to restore a Catholic dimension to French public culture through a re-evangelization of post-revolutionary France. The chapter ends with a discussion of the assassination of Jean-Paul Marat and the visionary Laure.
