‘In this wide-ranging collection of essays by respected scholars, Erica Johnson and Bryan Banks have assembled an engaging and impressive volume that underscores the ways in which the French Revolution was a moment that redefined faith, piety, and the relationship of organized religious institutions to state and society. Impressive in its global and chronological scope, this edited volume advances our understanding of how women and men, laity and religious elites, from France to Revolutionary Saint Domingue and Guiana to twentieth-century Turkey, have all found themselves forced to grapple with, and refashion, notions of sacred and the secular in response to cultural transformations set in motion by the French Revolution.’
