Lecture no. 27 from the course: Living the French Revolution and the Age of Napoleon
Taught by Professor Suzanne M. Desan | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online History Courses
The beginning of the Terror is difficult to pinpoint, but by the fall of 1793, all the institutions of the Terror were in place. This lecture shows you how the Jacobins built the Terror, introduces you to some of its victims—including its most famous victim, Marie-Antoinette—and wrestles with the philosophical question of how the Terror emerged from the Revolution.
