Hilaire Belloc’s The French Revolution
Kolbe’s Greatest Books Volume 88
Belloc sets down the political theory of the revolutionaries, which was ” sort of a religious creed supplying the motive force of the whole business”. He treats of the new civil code, of the massacres, panics and capitulations as of the ” quarrel between the Revolution and the Catholic Church ,” which is turning in favor of the latter.
