Dr Stewart McCain will explore the ramifications of the French Revolution for Britain.
The French Revolution of 1789 had major repercussions across Europe, and Britain was no exception. Responses in Britain to events in France were initially optimistic, but they soured as the initial liberal phase of the Revolution gave way to War and Terror. This talk by Dr Stewart McCain will explore the ramifications of the Revolution for Britain, with specific focus on the response of the then Bishop of London, Beilby Porteus, for whom events in France illustrated the political importance of religious life.
