Religious Conflicts after the Concordat (1803)

Title

Religious Conflicts after the Concordat (1803)

Description

Despite the official settlement with the papacy, some priests refused to bury those who had supported the pro–revolutionary wing of the church in the 1790s and others preached royalism from the pulpit. These excerpts come from a report made to the Minister of Police in 1803.
