Defining the Sacred in Postrevolutionary France
This chapter is devoted to popular anticlericalism because the majority of practices which comprise the “unofficial politics” of the Restoration fall under this general rubric. It discusses the strictly religious agenda of the missionaries because it is impossible to understand the widespread and growing dissatisfaction, distrust, and outright disgust which the clerics engendered in these years without attending to the ways in which their new religious order directly affected the men and women of France. It surveys the wide range of practices by which men and women protested against the missionaries and other men of the collar, with an eye to situating these acts within the political context of the postrevolutionary period.
