The SOCIETY OF THE FRIENDS OF THE CONSTITUTION (French : Société des amis de la Constitution), after 1792 renamed SOCIETY OF THE JACOBINS, FRIENDS OF FREEDOM AND EQUALITY (French : Société des Jacobins, amis de la liberté et de l'égalité), commonly known as the JACOBIN CLUB (Club des Jacobins) or simply the JACOBINS (French: , English: /ˈdʒæ.kə.bɪnz/ ), was the most influential political club during the French Revolution
French Revolution
. Initially founded by anti-Royalist deputies from Brittany
Brittany
, the Club grew into a nationwide republican movement, with a membership estimated at a half million or more. The Jacobin
Jacobin
Club was heterogeneous and included both prominent parliamentary factions of the early 1790s, the Mountain and the Girondins
Girondins
.

In 1792–93, the Girondins
Girondins
were more prominent in leading France, the period when war was declared on Austria and Prussia, the monarchy was overthrown and the Republic
Republic
created.

In May 1793, led by Maximilien de Robespierre , the leaders of the Mountain faction succeeded in sidelining the Girondin faction and controlled the government until July 1794. Their time in government was characterized by high levels of political violence; for this reason some historians after July 1794 label roughly that period of Jacobin/Mountain government as ' Reign of Terror
Reign of Terror
'.

In October 1793, twenty-one prominent Girondins
Girondins
were guillotined. The Mountain-dominated government executed 17,000 opponents nationwide, purportedly to suppress the Vendée insurrection and the 'Federalist insurrections ', and to prevent any other insurrections.

In July 1794, the government of Robespierre and allies was pushed out of power, Maximilien Robespierre
Maximilien Robespierre
and 21 associates were executed. In November 1794, the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club was closed.

Today, Jacobin
Jacobin
and Jacobinism are used in a variety of senses. In Britain, where the term Jacobin
Jacobin
has been linked primarily to the Mountain, it is sometimes used as a pejorative for radical , left-wing revolutionary politics, especially when it exhibits dogmatism and violent repression. In France, Jacobin
Jacobin
now generally indicates a supporter of a centralized republican state and strong central government powers and/or supporters of extensive government intervention to transform society. It is also used in other related senses, indicating proponents of a state education system which strongly promotes and inculcates civic values, and proponents of a strong nation-state capable of resisting any undesirable foreign interference.

Club was in the Rue Saint-Honoré, Paris.

When the Estates General of 1789 in France
France
was convened in May–June 1789 at the Palace of Versailles
Versailles
, the club, originated as the Club Breton, was composed exclusively of a group of Breton representatives attending those Estates General. But they soon were joined by deputies from other regions throughout France. Among early members were the dominating comte de Mirabeau , Parisian deputy Abbé Sieyès , Dauphiné
Dauphiné
deputy Antoine Barnave
Antoine Barnave
, Jérôme Pétion , the Abbé Grégoire , Charles Lameth , Alexandre Lameth , Robespierre , the duc d\'Aiguillon , and La Revellière-Lépeaux . At this time, meetings occurred in secret, and few traces remain concerning what took place or where the meetings were convened.

TRANSFER TO PARIS

By the March on Versailles
Versailles
in October 1789, the club, still entirely composed of deputies, reverted to being a provincial caucus for National Constituent Assembly
National Constituent Assembly
deputies from Brittany. As of October 1789, the group rented for its meetings the refectory of the monastery of the Jacobins in the Rue Saint-Honoré
Rue Saint-Honoré
, adjacent to the seat of the Assembly. The name Jacobins, given in France
France
to the Dominicans (because their first house in Paris
Paris
was in the Rue Saint-Jacques), was first applied to the club in ridicule by its enemies.

The club was re-founded in November 1789, after an address from the London Revolution Society congratulating the French on "conquering their liberty" led National Assembly deputies to found their own Société de la Révolution.

GROWTH (1789–91)

Once in Paris, the club soon extended its membership to others besides deputies. All citizens were allowed to enter, and even foreigners were welcomed: the English writer Arthur Young joined the club in this manner on 18 January 1790. Jacobin
Jacobin
Club meetings soon became a place for radical and rousing oratory that pushed for republicanism, widespread education, universal suffrage, separation of church and state, and other reforms.

On 8 February 1790 the society became formally constituted on this broader basis by the adoption of the rules drawn up by Barnave , which were issued with the signature of the duc d'Aiguillon, the president. The club's objectives were defined as:

* to discuss in advance questions to be decided by the National Assembly ; * to work for the establishment and strengthening of the constitution in accordance with the spirit of the preamble (that is, of respect for legally constituted authority and the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen ); and * to correspond with other societies of the same kind which should be formed in the realm.

At the same time the rules of order of election were settled, and the constitution of the club determined. There was to be a president, elected every month, four secretaries, a treasurer, and committees elected to superintend elections and presentations, the correspondence, and the administration of the club. Any member who by word or action showed that his principles were contrary to the constitution and the rights of man was to be expelled.

By the 7th article the club decided to admit as associates similar societies in other parts of France
France
and to maintain with them a regular correspondence. By 10 August 1790 there were already one hundred and fifty-two affiliated clubs; the attempts at counter-revolution led to a great increase of their number in the spring of 1791, and by the close of the year the Jacobins had a network of branches all over France. At the peak there were at least 7,000 chapters throughout France, with a membership estimated at a half-million or more. It was this widespread yet highly centralised organization that gave to the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club great power.

CHARACTER (1789–91)

Seal of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club from 1789–1792, during the transition from Absolutism to Constitutional monarchy

By early 1791, clubs like the Jacobins, the Club des Cordeliers
Cordeliers
and the Cercle Social were increasingly dominating French political life. Numbers of men were member of two or more of such clubs. Women were not accepted as members of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club (nor of most other clubs), but they were allowed to follow the discussions from the balconies. The rather high subscription of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club confined its membership to well-off men. The Jacobins claimed to speak on behalf of the people but were themselves not of 'the people': contemporaries saw the Jacobins as a club of the bourgeoisie .

As far as the central society in Paris
Paris
was concerned, it was composed almost entirely of professional men, such as lawyer Robespierre , and well-to-do bourgeoisie , like the brewer Santerre . From the start, however, also other elements were present. Besides the teenage son of the Duc d\'Orléans , Louis Philippe , a future king of France, liberal aristocrats of the type of the duc d'Aiguillon, the prince de Broglie , or the vicomte de Noailles , and the bourgeoisie who formed the mass of the members, the club contained people like "père" Michel Gérard, a peasant proprietor from Tuel-en-Montgermont, in Brittany, whose rough common sense was admired as the oracle of popular wisdom, and whose countryman's waistcoat and plaited hair were later on to become the model for the Jacobin
Jacobin
fashion.

The Jacobin
Jacobin
Club supported the monarchy up until the very eve of the republic (20 September 1792) . They did not support the petition of 17 July 1791 for the king\'s dethronement , but instead published their own petition calling for replacement of king Louis XVI .

The departure of the conservative members of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club to form their own Feuillants Club in July 1791 to some extent radicalized the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club.

POLARIZATION ROBESPIERRE some, not all of them, were indeed from department Gironde
Gironde
. The Assembly in April 1792 finally decided for war, thus following the 'Girondin ' line on it, but Robespierre's place among the Jacobins had now become much more prominent.

From then on, a polarization process started among the members of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club, between a group around Robespierre – after September 1792 called 'Montagnards ' or 'Montagne', in English 'the Mountain' – and the Girondins. These groups never had any official status, nor official memberships. The Mountain
The Mountain
was not even very homogenous in their political views: what united them was their aversion from the Girondins.

The Legislative Assembly , governing France
France
from October 1791 until September 1792, was dominated by men like Brissot, Isnard and Roland: Girondins. But after June 1792, Girondins
Girondins
visited less and less the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club, where Robespierre, their fierce opponent, grew more and more dominant.

OPPOSITION MONTAGNARDS–GIRONDINS IN CONVENTION (1792–93)

France
§ Bloodbath in Paris, Republic
Republic
established (Sept. 1792)

On 21 September 1792, after the fall of the monarchy , the title assumed by the Jacobin
Jacobin
club after the promulgation of the constitution of 1791 (Société des amis de la constitution séants aux Jacobins à Paris) was changed to Société des Jacobins, amis de la liberté et de l'égalité (Society of Jacobins, friends of liberty and equality). In the newly elected National Convention
National Convention
, governing France
France
as of 21 September 1792, Maximilien Robespierre
Maximilien Robespierre
made his comeback in the center of French power. Together with his 25-year-young protégé Louis Antoine de Saint-Just , Marat , Danton and other associates they took places on the left side on the highest seats of the session room: therefore that group around and led by Robespierre was called 'the Mountain ' (French: la Montagne, les Montagnards). Some historians prefer to identify a parliamentary group around Robespierre as 'Jacobins', what can be confusing because not all Montagnards were Jacobin, and their primal enemies, the Girondins, were (originally) also Jacobins. But by September 1792, Robespierre indeed had also become the dominant voice in the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club.

The Girondins
Girondins
, since late 1791 opponents of Robespierre but originally also Jacobins, took places on the right side of the session room of the Convention; but by now, they stopped visiting the Jacobin Club.

Those parliamentary groups, Montagnards and Girondins, never had any official status, but historians estimate the Girondins
Girondins
in the Convention at 150 men strong, the Montagnards at 120. The remaining 480 of the 750 deputies of the Convention were called 'the Plain' (French: la Plaine) and managed to keep some speed in the debates while Girondins
Girondins
and Montagnards were mainly occupied with nagging the opposite side.

Most Ministries were manned by friends or allies of the Girondins. But while the Girondins
Girondins
were stronger than the Montagnards outside Paris, inside Paris
Paris
the Montagnards were much more popular, implying that the public galleries of the Convention were always loudly cheering for Montagnards, while jeering at Girondins
Girondins
speaking.

On 6 April 1793, the Convention established the Comité de salut public (Committee of Public Prosperity, also translated as Committee of Public Safety) as sort of executive government of nine, later twelve members, always accountable to the National Convention. Initially it counted no Girondins
Girondins
and only one or two Montagnards, but gradually the influence of Montagnards in the Committee grew.

GIRONDINS DISBARRED FROM NATIONAL CONVENTION

France
§ Showdown in the Convention (May–June 1793) , and Insurrection of 31 May – 2 June 1793

Early April 1793, Minister of War, Pache, said to the National Convention that the 22 leaders of the Girondins
Girondins
should be banned. Later that month, the Girondin Guadet accused the Montagnard Marat of 'preaching plunder and murder' and trying 'to destroy the sovereignty of the people'. A majority of the Convention agreed to put Marat on trial, but the court of justice quickly acquitted Marat. This apparent victory of the Montagnards intensified their antipathies of the Girondins, and more proposals were vented to get rid of the Girondins.

On both 18 and 25 May 1793, the acting president of the Convention, Isnard, a Girondin, warned that the disturbances and disorder on the galleries and around the Convention would finally lead the country to anarchy and civil war, and he threatened on 25 May: "If anything should befall to the representatives of the nation, I declare, in the name of France, that all of Paris
Paris
will be obliterated". The next day, Robespierre said in the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club that the people should "rise up against the corrupted deputies" in the Convention. On 27 May, both Girondins
Girondins
and Montagnards accused the other party of propagating civil war.

On 2 June 1793, indeed the Convention in its Tuileries Palace
Tuileries Palace
was besieged by a crowd including 80,000 armed soldiers, clamorously on the hand of the Montagnards. In a chaotic session a decree was adopted that day by the Convention, expelling 22 leading Girondins
Girondins
from the Convention, including Lanjuinais , Isnard and Fauchet.

MONTAGNARD RULE, CIVIL WAR (1793–94)

France
§ Counter-revolution subdued (July 1793–April 1794) , and Reign of Terror
Reign of Terror

Around June 1793, Maximilien Robespierre
Maximilien Robespierre
and some of his associates/allies ('Montagnards’) maintained power or gained greater power in France. Many of them, like Robespierre himself, were Jacobin: Fouché , Collot d\'Herbois , Billaud-Varenne , Marat , Danton , Saint-Just .

Three other powerful Montagnards were not known as Jacobin: Barère , Hébert and Couthon . In 'culture wars' and history writing after 1793 however, the group around Robespierre dominating French politics in June 1793–July 1794 was often designated as 'Jacobins'.

Many of them Montagnards (and Jacobins) entered, or were already, in the de facto executive government of France, the Committee of Public Prosperity (or Public Safety) : Barère was in it since April 1793 until at least October 93, Danton served there from April until July 1793, Couthon and Saint-Just had entered the Committee in May, Robespierre entered it in July, Collot d'Herbois in September and Billaud-Varenne also around September 1793. Robespierre for his steadfast adherence to and defence of his views received the nickname and reputation of l'Incorruptible (The Incorruptible or The Unassailable).

Several deposed Girondin- Jacobin
Jacobin
Convention deputies, among them Jean-Marie Roland , Brissot , Pétion, Louvet, Buzot and Guadet , left Paris
Paris
to help organize revolts in more than 60 of the 83 departments against the politicians and Parisians, mainly Montagnards, that had seized power over the Republic. The government in Paris
Paris
called such revolts 'federalist' which was not accurate: most did not strive for regional autonomy but for a different central government.

In October 1793, 21 former Girondin Convention deputies were sentenced to death for supporting an insurrection in Caen. In March 1794, the Montagnard Hébert and some followers were sentenced to death; in April the Montagnard Danton and 13 of his followers were sentenced to death; in both cases after insinuation by Robespierre in the Convention that those "internal enemies" were promoting 'the triumph of tyranny'. Meanwhile, the Montagnard-dominated government resorted also to harsh measures to repress what they considered counter-revolution, conspiracy and "enemies of freedom " in the provinces outside Paris, resulting in 17,000 death sentences between September 1793 and July 1794 in all of France.

In late June 1794, three colleagues on the Committee of Public Prosperity/Safety – Billaud-Varenne, Collot d'Herbois and Carnot – called Robespierre a dictator. Late July 1794, Robespierre and 21 associates including the Jacobin
Jacobin
Saint-Just and the Montagnard Couthon were sentenced to death by the National Convention
National Convention
and guillotined .

Probably because of the high level of repressive violence – but also to discredit Robespierre and associates as sole responsibles for it – historians have taken up the habit to roughly label the period June 1793–July 1794 as ' Reign of Terror
Reign of Terror
'. Later and modern scholars explain that high level of repressive violence with: France
France
was menaced by civil war within and by a coalition of hostile powers without, requiring the discipline of the Terror to mold France
France
into a united Republic
Republic
capable of resisting this double peril.

REUNION JACOBIN ADHERENTS (1799)

Engraving "Closing of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club, during the night of 27–28 July 1794, or 9–10 Thermidor, year 2 of the Republic"

With Robespierre and other leading Montagnards and Jacobins being executed in July 1794 , Montagnards and Girondins
Girondins
as groups seem to have ceased to play a significant role in French history: historians make no more mention of them. Also the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club seems not to have played a decisive role any longer.

The Jacobin
Jacobin
club was disbanded on 12 November 1794. An attempt to reorganize Jacobin
Jacobin
adherents was the foundation of the Réunion d'amis de l'égalité et de la liberté, in July 1799, which had its headquarters in the Salle du Manège of the Tuileries
Tuileries
, and was thus known as the Club du Manège. It was patronized by Barras , and some two hundred and fifty members of the two councils of the legislature were enrolled as members, including many notable ex-Jacobins. It published a newspaper called the Journal des Libres, proclaimed the apotheosis of Robespierre and Babeuf , and attacked the Directory as a royauté pentarchique. But public opinion was now preponderatingly moderate or royalist, and the club was violently attacked in the press and in the streets. The suspicions of the government were aroused; it had to change its meeting-place from the Tuileries
Tuileries
to the church of the Jacobins (Temple of Peace) in the Rue du Bac, and in August it was suppressed, after barely a month's existence. Its members avenged themselves on the Directory by supporting Napoleon Bonaparte

INFLUENCE

POLITICAL INFLUENCE

The Jacobin
Jacobin
movement encouraged sentiments of patriotism and liberty amongst the populace. The movement's contemporaries, such as the King Louis XVI , located the effectiveness of the revolutionary movement not "in the force and bayonets of soldiers, guns, cannons and shells but by the marks of political power". Ultimately, the Jacobins were to control several key political bodies, in particular the Committee of Public Safety and, through it, the National Convention, which was not only a legislature but also took upon itself executive and judicial functions. The Jacobins as a political force were seen as "less selfish, more patriotic, and more sympathetic to the Paris Populace." This gave them a position of charismatic authority that was effective in generating and harnessing public pressure, generating and satisfying sans-culotte pleas for personal freedom and social progress.

The Jacobin
Jacobin
Club developed into a bureau for French republicanism and revolutionary purity, and abandoned its original laissez faire economic views in favor of interventionism . In power, they completed the abolition of feudalism that had been formally decided 4 August 1789, but had been held in check by a clause requiring compensation for the abrogation of the feudal privileges.

Maximilien Robespierre
Maximilien Robespierre
entered the political arena at the very beginning of the Revolution, having been elected to represent Artois at the Estates General . Robespierre was viewed as the quintessential political force of the Jacobin
Jacobin
Movement, thrusting ever deeper the dagger of liberty within the despotism of the Monarchy. As a disciple of Rousseau, Robespierre's political views were rooted in Rousseau's notion of the social contract , which promoted "the rights of man". Robespierre particularly favored the rights of the broader population to eat, for example, over the rights of individual merchants. "I denounce the assassins of the people to you and you respond, 'let them act as they will.' In such a system, all is against society; all favors the grain merchants." Robespierre famously elaborated this conception in his speech on 2 December 1792: "What is the first goal of society? To maintain the imprescribable rights of man. What is the first of these rights? The right to exist."

The ultimate political vehicle for the Jacobin
Jacobin
movement was the Reign of Terror overseen by the Committee of Public Safety, who were given executive powers to purify and unify the Republic. The Committee instituted requisitioning , rationing , and conscription to consolidate new citizen armies. They instituted the Terror as a means of combating those they perceived as enemies within: Robespierre declared, "the first maxim of your policy ought to be to lead the people by reason and the people's enemies by terror.".

The meeting place of the Fraternal Society of Patriots of Both Sexes was an old library room of the convent which hosted the Jacobins, and it was suggested that the Fraternal Society grew out of the regular occupants of a special gallery allotted to women at the Jacobin
Jacobin
Club.

CULTURAL INFLUENCE

The cultural influence of the Jacobin
Jacobin
movement during the French Revolution revolved around the creation of the Citizen. As commented in Jean-Jacques Rousseau
Jean-Jacques Rousseau
's 1762 book The Social Contract, "Citizenship is the expression of a sublime reciprocity between individual and General will." This view of citizenship and the General Will, once empowered, could simultaneously embrace the Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen
Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen
and adopt the liberal French Constitution of 1793
French Constitution of 1793
, then immediately suspend that constitution and all ordinary legality and institute Revolutionary Tribunals that did not grant a presumption of innocence .

The Jacobins saw themselves as constitutionalists, dedicated to the Rights of Man, and, in particular, to the Declaration's principle of "preservation of the natural rights of liberty, property, security, and resistance to oppression" (Article II of the Declaration). The constitution reassured the protection of personal freedom and social progress within French society. The cultural influence of the Jacobin movement was effective in reinforcing these rudiments, developing a milieu for revolution. The Constitution was admired by most Jacobins as the foundation of the emerging republic and of the rise of citizenship.

The Jacobins were foes of both the Church and of atheism. They set up a new religious cult to replace Catholicism. They advocated deliberate government-organized terror as a substitute for both the rule of law and the more arbitrary terror of mob violence, inheritors of a war that, at the time of their rise to power, threatened the very existence of the Revolution. Once in power the Jacobins completed the overthrow of the Ancien Régime
Ancien Régime
and successfully defended the Revolution from military defeat. However, to do so, they brought the Revolution to its bloodiest phase, and the one with least regard for just treatment of individuals. They consolidated republicanism in France
France
and contributed greatly to the secularism and the sense of nationhood that have marked all French republican regimes to this day. However, their ruthless and unjudicial methods discredited the Revolution in the eyes of many. The resulting Thermidorian Reaction shuttered all of the Jacobin
Jacobin
clubs, removed all Jacobins from power, and condemned many, well beyond the ranks of the Mountain, to death or exile.
