Maximilien Marie Isidore de Robespierre Bibliography

Rapport sur les rapports des idees religieuses et morales avec les principes republicains, 7 mai 1794 1794
Although Robespierre referred to the encyclopédistes as part of the ‘preface’ to the Revolution he also claimed “that sect, in matters of politics, always remained below the rights of the people, and in matters of ethics it went far beyond the destruction of religious prejudices. Its coryphees sometimes disclaimed against despotism, and they were pensioned by despots”.
