    Overview

    Aims and Scope

    Reclaiming the Sacred examines the ways in which the new secular political culture of the French Revolution transformed the religious practices of lay people. Focusing on the Yonne, a prorevolutionary department in Burgundy, Suzanne Desan analyzes how the region's laity responded to the revolutionaries' attempts to dechristianize France and to replace Christianity with new revolutionary cults.
