The Third Estate Marrying Priests with Nuns

Dublin Core

Title

The Third Estate Marrying Priests with Nuns

Description

The National Assembly also eliminated monasteries, since monks and nuns had increasingly become figures of ridicule. This image depicts the dissolution of the religious orders, rather than the confiscation of lands, as the crucial element in religious reorganization. It shows "the National Assembly marrying nuns and monks" so they will become productive citizens.
