1790: A Community of Friends?

Show Summary Details


The Rolands and several friends, including Brissot, Bancal, Champagneux and Lanthenas, considered an idealistic project: to buy up church land and form a community with a school, printing press, and group of families farming the land. The scheme in various forms and its partcipants are discussed: one side-effect is the mutual attraction between Henri Bancal and Madame Roland – perhaps the first crack in the Roland marriage.
