  • 1.57 The Institutions of Terror
    With the French Revolution engulfed in crises, the deputies of the Convention (eventually) took action. New measures were introduced to crush the counter-revolution, measures which would become the hallmarks of the coming Reign of Terror. This episode explores the introduction of Representatives on Mission and the contentious re-establishment of the Revolutionary Tribunal. It examines the actions taken against foreigners, priests, and former nobles, as well as the formalisation of Surveillance Committees. Finally, we introduce the famous Committee of Public Safety, completing our introduction of the institutions of terror.

  • 1.55 Civil War in the Vendée
    The revolutionaries are confronted with a new challenge in the west. Recruitment riots grip the nation, and in a region known as the Vendée, these disturbances fast became organised resistance. By June 1793, civil war consumed western France, and large swaths of the countryside were controlled by the Royal and Catholic Army. In this episode, we explore why the Vendée was the first region to revolt against the National Convention, the unique characteristics of the civil war, and multiple debates which bitterly divide historians. Episode Extra Hills, Hedges, and Humble Clerics In the Episode Extra for this episode, we unpack why the topography of the Vendée was so beneficial to the defending insurrectionists. We also hear from a contemporary on the role of religion in the civil war. EARLY ACCESS Episode 56 "Fasting and Furious" SUPPORT GREY HISTORY!
