Memoirs, illustrating the history of Jacobinism (1799) V.III
MetadataShow full item record
In 1797 a French Jesuit priest named Abbe Barruel published a series of books on the Jacobins and their influence on the French Revolution. The Jacobins were a powerful political club in France which helped organize the revolution in the late 1700s. Today the term Jacobin or Jacobinism is sometimes used to describe left-wing revolutionary ideas. Barruel wrote four different volumes titled Memoirs Illustrating the History of Jacobinism in which he explained that the French Revolution was the result of secret societies, largely the Bavarian Illuminati. This is a rare reprint of this historic book that is over 200 years old.
