For Altar and Throne

The Rising in the Vendee

by Michael Davies

Book Image Not Available Book Image Not Available
Many know very little about the Catholic uprising in the Vendee - the most important opposition to the French Revolution and its Reign of Terror. In this book, Michael Davies provides the whole truth of the history of the Revolution of 1789, in France.
It is a matter of regret that very few English-speaking Catholics know anything whatsoever about the events that took place in the Vendee region of France during the French Revolution of 1789. The aim of this book is to commemorate the visit of Pope John Paul II to the Vendee, where the people remained faithful to the Vicar of Christ and attached to their parishes and their priests, in spite of the cruelty of persecution to which they were subjected during the French Revolution. There is no more noble or inspiring story in the history of the Church than that of the heroic struggle of the people of the Vendee to defend their altars and their King.
About the author

Michael Treharne Davies (13 March 1936 – 25 September 2004) wrote many books on the subject of the Catholic Church following the Second Vatican Council. He was the president of the International Traditionalist Catholic organization Una Voce from 1992 to 2004. He was a defender of Tradition and his many books are a treasure trove still today.
