Volume 1 describes the relations of Church and State, the wealth of the Church, and its role in national life from Versailles to the scaffold.

About the Author:


Very big author. This is his magnum opus, the culmination of 40 years work.

Review:


"John McManners...has produced a fine book, a book to be pondered, not only for what it says about the Church in eighteenth-century France, but for what it tells us about history in general, history and the human condition."--Times Literary Supplement
