Hello everybody! I’m Fernando!
Happy new year to everyone!
Today has been the first day of class of the year and at second period we have had Social Sciences. The first thing we have seen is a whiteboard where we can write our favourite quotes. Later Paqui has remered us what we were studing before the holidays and then she has copied a scheme to do during the class and if we didn’t have time to finish at home. The scheme is about the development of the French revolution and it’s divided into three parts:
-Moderate stage (1789-1792):
- National assembly (1789-1791): the most important decision they made was to establish a constitution.
The national assembly
- Legislative Assembly (1791-1792): Their main decisions is the abolition of the guilds, a universal tax system, prohibition of torture, creation of a national army, confiscation and sell of the properties of the Chruch and Civil Constitution of the Clergy. They also finished with the monarchy in France.
- Girondist convention (1792-1793): The main decision was to execute the king by guillotine, but they had some problems with this execution, because this provoked the formation of a coalition of the European monarchies against France.
The execution of the king by guillotine
- Jacobin Convention(1793-1794):Their main decisions were a new constitution, the law of the maximum, the distribution of the properties of the counter-revolutionary for the poor, the sell of the properties of the Cruch, Churches were closed and cult to Reason was established, compulsory education, mobilization of all the available men to stop the foreign invasion and liberties were suspended. A policy was created called the Age of Terror, this consist in the right to execute all the suspected counter-revolutionaries by guillotine. At the end Thermidor a conservative coup d’eat deposed the Jacobins and their leaders were guillotined.
See you tomorrow!
