The Romanov Four Sisters: Before the Storm

  • The Romanov Four Sisters: Before the Storm

    34:17

    The Romanov sisters were the most photographed princesses of their day, yet the world knew very little of the four girls in the official portraits. The daughters of Nicholas and Alexandra have often been considered nothing more than the pretty backdrop to the larger and more dramatic story of their parents and tragic hemophiliac brother Alexey. Despite what portraits depict and behind the dutiful image existed four very vibrant and fascinating and most of all, distinct, personalities.

    A two-part series focusing on Tsar Nicholas II's four daughters - Olga, Tatiana, Maria, and Anastasia - combining interviews with leading historians, stunning archive footage, and dramatic reconstruction to reveal the real girls behind the fairy-tale images.

    This is a remake of a video produced and published by BBC in 2014, entitled Russia's Lost Princesses. This new version features colorized pictures by Olga Shirnina (Klimbim), newsreel footage, and a selection of photographs from the State Archive of the Russian Federation (GARF).

  • The Burial of the Romanovs | 17 July 1998

    26:38

    On 17 July 1998, eighty years to the day after their murder, the remains of Emperor Nicholas II, his wife, three of his children, and the four faithful retainers were finally laid to rest in St Petersburg´s Saint Peter and Paul Cathedral. The remains were interred in the crypt of the cathedral's St Catherine Chapel, the resting place of Russian emperors since the reign of Peter the Great. Over fifty members of the Romanov Family and their close relatives traveled to Russia from all corners of the world, from Australia, North and South America, and Europe. President Yeltsin announced his presence at the ceremonies as well as many ambassadors, politicians, and prominent personalities. From Britain, Prince Michael of Kent and from Germany members of the Oldenburg dynasty, both closely related to the Romanovs.

    Addressing the funeral ceremony, President Boris Yeltsin described the murder of the Russian royal family as one of the most shameful pages in Russian history, and urged Russians to close a bloody century with repentance.

  • Interview with Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna, Head of the Russian Imperial House

    24:24

    H.I.H. Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna, Head of the Russian Imperial House, was interviewed by Al Gurnov of RussiaToday, on 16 Jul 2008. The discussion was about the murder and rehabilitation of the Imperial family of Tsar Nicholas II, the authenticity of the discovered remains and the position of the Church on the subject, the greatest Russian historical figure, the restoration of the monarchy in Russia, President Putin, and the possible role of herself should she return to Russia.

    Grand Duchess Maria Vladimirovna was born in Madrid, the only child of Grand Duke Vladimir Kirillovich of Russia, head of the Imperial Family of Russia and titular Emperor of Russia, and Princess Leonida Bagration-Mukhrani of Georgian, Polish, German and Swedish descent. Her paternal grandparents were Grand Duke Kirill Vladimirovich of Russia and Grand Duchess Victoria Feodorovna (née Princess Victoria Melita of Edinburgh and Saxe-Coburg-Gotha). Her godfather was Prince Nicholas of Romania and godmother, Queen Ioanna of Bulgaria.

    She was educated at Runnymede College in Madrid and Paris before studying Russian history and literature at Oxford University. The Grand Duchess lives in France and Spain. She is fluent in Russian, English, French, and Spanish, and also speaks some German, Italian, and Arabic.

    On 23 December 1969, upon reaching her dynastic majority, Maria swore an oath of loyalty to her father, to Russia, and to uphold the Fundamental Laws of Russia which governed succession to the defunct throne.

  • The Tragedy Of The Romanovs Explained

    10:26

    The entire royal family of Russia were massacred in 1918, but that was just the final, brutal act of a heartbreaking story of the Romanovs. From troubled romances to major health issues, here’s the tragic real-life story of the last imperial rulers of Russia.

    Russian political history has been marked by exceptional violence, but by the 19th century, things seemed to have stabilized somewhat. Emperor Alexander II ascended to the throne in 1855 and recognized the need for a change in a country that was crippled by its aging political structure and outdated economy. Alexander's greatest move was the emancipation of the serfs in 1861, and he made other moves in an attempt to modernize his empire.

    But some still felt he hadn't gone far enough, fast enough, and in 1866, the first of several assassination attempts was made on his life. He reacted by becoming more conservative in his rule, which in turn led to more dissatisfaction and more assassination attempts. By 1881, though, he recognized the need for reform, and signed into law a bill that would have given the people a parliamentary voice in government, something he viewed as the first step toward a constitution.

    Ironically, though, just two hours later, he was assassinated by reform seeking radicals. His reactionary son, Alexander III, became the new tsar and immediately overturned the reform bill, instead implementing the most restrictive and harsh authoritarian government yet.

  • The Romanovs. The Real History of the Russian Dynasty. Episodes 1-4. StarMediaEN

    3:26:59

    All episodes:
    In 1613 The Zemsky Sobor (the National Assembly) adopted a decision to invite Michael Fyodorovich Romanov to become tsar of Russia. This decision was announced in Red Square in front of numerous crowds of people: “Michael Fyodorovich shall be tsar and lord of Muscovy and all the Russian state.” In order to prevent disturbances, Michael Romanov had to take a terrible sin upon his soul – to execute a 3 year-old boy…

    The most vivid pages of Russian history and the establishment and consolidation of Russian state power are associated with the eighteen Russian Tsars of the House of Romanov which include such historic names as Peter the Great, Catherine the Great, Nicholas I and Alexanders I, II and III. The dynasty ended with the brutal assassination of the last Tsar, Nicholas II and his family by the Bolsheviks in Ekaterinburg in 1917.

    The Romanov dynasty played a hugely important role in world history, and the series highlights the life stories and characters of the tsars, recounting their rise to power and their contribution to the dynasty, their merits and their faults, their achievements and mistakes, their victories and defeats in war.

    The series also examines the Russian form of 'Caesarism' as a system of state administration - its advantages and drawbacks and how the Russian state changed under the Romanov's rule.

    THE ROMANOVS is told in eight epic one-hour episodes using a unique combination of magnificent CGI animation and dramatic reconstruction with careful and accurate attention paid to each period.

  • Romanov Centennial Procession | Ekaterinburg 2018

    45:18

    More than 100,000 participated in the all-night Liturgy and procession for the 100th anniversary of the Romanovs martyrdom. The people came from all corners of the world. The event began with the Divine Liturgy celebrated on the square in front of the Church on the Blood in Ekaterinburg, built on the site where the Ipatiev House once stood, where the family was murdered. The service was headed by His Holiness Patriarch Kirill with more than 35 hierarchs and multiple clergy concelebrating.

    Following the Liturgy, the patriarch led the traditional Royal Cross Procession from the place of martyrdom of the holy Royal Martyrs and their servants to the Monastery of the Holy Royal Martyrs at Ganina Yama ravine, covering a distance of 21 km (13 miles).

    According to tradition, the faithful carried banners and icons in the procession, including a 6.5-ft. icon of the Tsar-Martyr, painted in 2017 for the Church of the “Reigning” Icon of the Mother of God at Ganina Yama. Together with the kiot, the icon weighs 330 lbs. A special bier on wheels was made to move the heavy icon.

    The procession was also accompanied by 25 mobile groups from an Orthodox charity service, consisting of clergy, representatives of the Dormition Orthodox Brotherhood of Ekaterinburg, sisters of mercy, and volunteers, who provided assistance to those who could not walk the entire route of the procession. Field kitchens and tests were also set up at the Monastery of the Holy Royal Martyrs for the pilgrims to rest.

    His Holiness and the procession arrived at the monastery in the morning, where the patriarch served a moleben to the Royal Martyrs in front of the memorial cross erected at Mine #7, where the bodies of the Royal Martyrs were abused and disposed of. His Holiness Patriarch Alexei II (1929-2008) thus referred to Ganina Yama as “a living antimens, permeated with particles of the burnt holy relics.”

  • The Romanov Faberge Eggs

    They are at once exquisite works of art and fascinating relics of a vanished era.

This film tours the Forbes Collection and the Hillwood Museum, offering a comprehensive history of these magnificent creations. Curators and experts reveal the amazing features that make each egg a masterpiece while historians explain how the waning years of Russian royalty can be traced through the eggs' changing themes. From the courts of the Tsar to today's auctions, this film presents the incredible story of some of the most mesmerizing objects ever created.

    The original version of the film was produced and released in 2005, by A&E Home Video. This version is a special edition by The Romanov Royal Martyrs Project, featuring new music and colorized pictures by Olga Shirnina.

    ABOUT THE GIRL IN THE TIARA
    ----------------------------------------------------
    I tell stories about tiaras and the fascinating royal women who wore them. Join me as I follow these tiaras across generations and countries, through wars and revolutions and—sometimes—into darkness and disappearance and destruction.

    This isn't the kind of history your professor lectured about. Instead, think of this as conversational history, like a mash-up of Drunk History and The Crown. Yes, there's a little swearing. There's also humor and heart and a boatload of compassion for these amazing royal women.

    ABOUT ME
    -------------------
    I never intended to start a channel or a website about tiaras and royal history. But a midlife crisis forced me to re-examine my life. I gave up fiction writing after self-publishing 9 of the 10 books I'd written and earning next to nothing.

    Instead of the misery of marketing books, I turned to my first love...royal history. So here I am, a 40-something burnout, trying to start over by recapturing her love of history, royal women, and their jewels.

  • Nicholas II | The Last Tsar of Russia

    19:41

    Emperor Nicholas II reigned for 22 years. With his murder, the last Orthodox Christian monarch, along with the thousand-year history of thrones and crowns in Russia, ended, ushering in an era of lawlessness, apostasy, and confusion, one which would sweep Holy Orthodox Russia into an abyss which would last more than 70 years.

    A video production presented by Paul Gilbert, who did the research for this tribute, within the framework of the project for the book “The Romanov Royal Martyrs”.

    “The Romanov Royal Martyrs” is an impressive 512-page book, featuring nearly 200 black & white photographs, and a 56-page photo insert of more than 80 high-quality images, colourized by the acclaimed Russian artist Olga Shirnina (Klimbim), and appearing here in print for the first time.

  • Angels of Mercy | The Wartime Service of the Romanov Sisters

    15:39

    When WW1 broke, Grand Duchesses Olga and Tatiana Romanov, after two months of classroom and practical nursing training, joined the Red Cross nursing staff, along with their mother. Every day, starting very early in the morning, they would always go first to the Church to pray, and then immediately after they began their work in the hospital in the wards which received the wounded daily. The three women, along with the rest of the nurses, immediately began the procedures of washing and dressing amputated limbs, deformed faces, gouged eyes, and all sorts of terrible wounds. Maria and Anastasia, fifteen and thirteen years old respectively in 1914, were too young to be trained as nurses. However, they also had their own hospital in which they performed their own services.

  • The Final Days of the Romanovs | Faith in God to the End | with Helen Rappaport

    12:15

    All the Romanovs could do in confinement was meekly submit to their fate and forgive their enemies. Toward the end of his life, the Tsarevich's tutor Sidney Gibbs recalled: They knew that it was the end when I was with them. Exhausted by their present hardships the Romanovs took great strength in religious consolation and their mutual devotion to God. It helped them transcend the uncertainty of the dangerous and unstable world they now inhabited.

    A video with Helen Rappaport about the spirituality of the Romanov family and the last stage of their imprisonment in Ekaterinburg.

  • The Romanov Children through their Letters & Diaries

    9:54

    Olga came off as an emotional and sensitive person even in her diaries. Tatiana in her diaries is very precise, descriptive, and not really emotional but her letters were a lot warmer. Maria the most social of all the siblings and because of that she didn't have a lot of patience for writing her diary, but you can tell that she liked writing letters. She's very upbeat and she's a very good storyteller. Anastasia’s letters were full of personality and humor. She was very funny. So, her letters are really fun to read! Alexei was really a normal boy of his age who loved his family. He was very curious and he loved to have fun.

    A video with Helen Azar about the personalities of all the Romanov children, according to their diaries’ entries and their letters.

  • The Truth Behind the Secret Plans to Rescue Russias Imperial Family | Helen Rappaport

    18:47

    The Race to Save the Romanovs will completely change the way we see the Romanov story. Finally, here is the truth about the secret plans to rescue Russia’s last imperial family.

    Out now:

    On 17 July 1918, the whole of the Russian Imperial Family was murdered. There were no miraculous escapes. The former Tsar Nicholas, his wife Alexandra, and their children – Olga, Tatiana, Maria, Anastasia and Alexey – were all tragically gunned down in a blaze of bullets.

    On the 100-year-anniversary of these brutal murders, historian Helen Rappaport set out to uncover why the Romanovs’ European royal relatives and the Allied governments failed to save them. It was not, ever, a simple case of one British King’s loss of nerve. In this race against time, many other nations and individuals were facing political and personal challenges of the highest order.

    In this incredible detective story, Rappaport draws on an unprecedented range of unseen sources, tracking down missing documents, destroyed papers and covert plots to liberate the family by land, sea and even sky. Through countless twists and turns, this revelatory work unpicks many false claims and conspiracies, revealing the fiercest loyalty, bitter rivalries and devastating betrayals as the Romanovs, imprisoned, awaited their fate.

    A remarkable new work of history from Helen Rappaport, author of Ekaterinburg: The Last Days of the Romanovs.

  • Anastasia 1997 The Last Of The Romanovs Family

    3:41

    Once again this scene have been in my head, and this is my second favorite from Don Bluth's Animated Masterpiece Anastasia.

    Rasputin returns to the palace after Czar Nicholas banished him and demands he leaves. Enraged, Rasputin puts a curse on the family, that they will all die on the fortnight and refused to sleep until the Romanov family was destoryed forever.

    Soon after, for revenge, he sold his soul in exchange for a unholy reliquary, which he used to cast a curse on the family. Rasputin's revolutionists, the Bolsheviks, charged through the palace gates and caused destruction upon the palace, including overthrowing the statue of Nicholas II.

    Anastasia was with her grandmother, Dowager Empress Marie, during the execution, calling out for her father, and Nicholas tells his children to hurry. Everyone else, was fleeing from the palace for their lives.

    Anastasia leaves her grandmother's side when she forgets the music box that she gave her on the night of the 300th anniversary and she follows her. Anastasia runs into her bedroom and grabs her music box, but are now trapped in the midst of the chaos.

    Soon, Dimitri crawls through a secret passageway in Anastasia's room and bravely risked his life to save them by sending them through the servant's quarters and out into safety, not long before Anastasia drops her music box and Bartok, Rasputin's assisstant and sidekick alerts their escape to Rasputin. But Anastasia forgot her music box and when she tried to get it, Dimitri insisted that she leave while she still could. Three of the invading Bolsheviks, Rasputin's revolutionists, burst the door open. One had a rifle and the other two searched the room, demanded to know where are they. Dimitri distracts them and is knocked unconscious, but saves the music box in hopes of remembering the royal family.

    After escaping the execution, Anastasia and Marie are running on a frozen river, under a bridge as they are escaping the palace. Rasputin watches them escape from atop the bridge and quickly jumps down with an evil laugh as he is attempting to kill Anastasia himself. Nearly missing her, he manages to tackle her to the ground and latch his bony fingers onto her foot. They are both drenched in snow as he begins thrashing her about on the ice by her leg. Screaming for help and pleading, please, let me go!, her Grandmother helplessly tries holding onto her arm, pulling her away as much as her can before the evil man tightens his grip on the poor girl's ankle with both hands one last time. Before Rasputin is able to gain any more strides, the ice begins to crack beneath him. Trembling with fear, he takes one hand off the girl and begins plunging into the freezing water. Anastasia shakes his grip off and kicks herself free leaving Rasputin to drown in the river, escaping one more.

    Finally, when they reached the train station, there was a sea of people, boarding and ready to leave. Anastasia and her grandmother eventually reach a moving train, but only Marie manages to get on as Anastasia trips and hits her head on the station platform, losing all of her memories, forcing her grandmother to leave her behind and not see her again until 10 years later. This is just a sad part out of all Animated Movie : (

  • Livadia 1913 | Romanov Family Photo Albums | No 6

    6:25

    The imperial family typically vacationed in Livadia during the spring and fall. Livadia is a settlement in southern Crimea, not far from the city of Yalta. To get there, they would take the train from St. Petersburg to Sevastopol, and then board a ship, before eventually arriving at the Yalta port with great ceremony. The tsar, with his wife and children, would enjoy the healing air, go for walks, swim, sunbathe, go hunting, ride horses, and take drives in the countryside.

  • St Petersburg Palaces of the Romanovs

    11:09

    Discover the Romanov palaces of St Petersburg, which remain scattered throughout the city of St Petersburg today. Embellished with gold yet plagued with whispers of conspiracy and insurrection, these numerous palaces offer valuable insight into the rise and fall of one of the world’s greatest empires.

    The Bolsheviks would be turning in their graves to hear us say it, but the House of Romanov laid the foundations of St Petersburg with that indelible magnificence of the early Russian Empire. The city’s patron and namesake, Peter the Great, became Russia’s first emperor in 1721, and his lineage was responsible for the architectural development of St Petersburg for almost 200 years thereafter.

    13:20

    From Grand Duchess Olga Nikolaevna's 1911 Diary:

    11 [September]. Monday.... At 11 o'clock arrived in Kiev. The weather was rainy and nasty. The welcome was wonderful. Masses of people.

  • Amber Room: The Full Story | Historical Files

    25:25

    A gift to Peter the Great in 1716 celebrating peace between Russia and Prussia, the room's fate became anything but peaceful: Nazis looted it during World War II, and in the final months of the war, the amber panels, which had been packed away in crates, disappeared. A replica was completed in 2003, but the contents of the original, dubbed the Eighth Wonder of the World, have remained missing for decades.

    The Amber Room was a chamber decorated in amber panels backed with gold leaf and mirrors, located in the Catherine Palace of Tsarskoe Selo near Saint Petersburg. Constructed in the 18th century in Prussia, the room was dismantled and eventually disappeared during World War II. Before its loss, it was considered an Eighth Wonder of the World. A reconstruction was made, starting in 1979 and completed and installed in the Catherine Palace in 2003.

    The Amber Room was intended in 1701 for the Charlottenburg Palace, in Berlin, Prussia, but was eventually installed at the Berlin City Palace. It was designed by German baroque sculptor Andreas Schlüter and Danish amber craftsman Gottfried Wolfram. Schlüter and Wolfram worked on the room until 1707, when work was continued by amber masters Gottfried Turau and Ernst Schacht from Danzig (Gdańsk).

    It remained in Berlin until 1716, when it was given by the Prussian King Frederick William I to his ally Tsar Peter the Great of the Russian Empire. In Russia, the room was installed in the Catherine Palace. After expansion and several renovations, it covered more than 55 square metres (590 sq ft) and contained over 6 tonnes (13,000 lb) of amber.

    The Amber Room was looted during World War II by the Army Group North of Nazi Germany, and taken to Königsberg for reconstruction and display. Its eventual fate and current whereabouts, if it survives, remain a mystery. In 1979 the decision was taken to create a reconstructed Amber Room at the Catherine Palace. After decades of work by Russian craftsmen and donations from Germany, it was completed and inaugurated in 2003.

  • Henry VIIIs SEVENTH Wife?! - The Story Of Katherine Willoughby

    8:40

    One of the most famous Kings in the world has to be Henry VIII of England. He is most known today for the fact he had 6 wives, and the fact he ordered the execution of 2 of these, Anne Boleyn and Catherine Howard. Henry VIII's love life certainly was turbulent, and it caused chaos across the country. After being refused a divorce for his first wife Catherine of Aragon, he split from Rome becoming the Supreme Head of the Church of England. This began the English Reformation, which changed the face of religion forever.

    We know much about Henry's wives, Catherine of Aragon, Anne Boleyn, Jane Seymour, Anne of Cleves, Catherine Howard and Katherine Parr. However there was another lady who was being considered shortly before the King died to become his SEVENTH wife. Katherine Parr had began to arouse suspicion within the royal court, and the King allegedly had his eye on a much younger lady, Katherine Willoughby the Duchess of Suffolk.

    Katherine had been married as a teenager to a much older man, and was an incredibly rich Duchess owning a huge amount of land across various counties. She was a staunch Protestant and even friends with Henry's sixth wife, but rumours began to circulate about the King and Katherine Willoughby getting married, once Henry possibly divorced Katherine Parr.

    So join us today as we look at the bizarre and incredibly story of 'Henry VIII's Seventh Wife, The Story of Katherine Willoughby.'

  • HOW DID THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY CAME TO BE ?| AN OVERVIEW OF THE BRITISH ROYAL FAMILY HISTORY

    8:42

    The British Royal Family is arguably the most famous dynasty in modern history, responsible for the unification of the United Kingdom, colonization of vast swathes of the pre-industrial world and waging countless wars across the globe.

    Today the British monarchy is mostly removed from directly governing the kingdom, operating more in a symbolic fashion while still enjoying the pomp, ceremony and lavish lifestyle that comes with being born into royalty.

    So, who came before William, Kate, Meaghan and Harry? How did the British Royal Family come to be?
    The origins of Queen Elizabeth II are convoluted to say the least, with her family history dating back to the 10th century. Her ancestry can be traced back to Alfred The Great, King of Wessex who lived between 849 and 899AD.

    From then on, things got messy in true Game of Thrones style! During this time, aristocratic families would fight each other for control of the Crown. But it wasn’t just family feud; constant bickering over rightful heirs meant that brothers and uncles would often kill each other in order to be the next King.

  • Simon Sebag Montefiore, Richard Evans | The Romanovs | Jaipur Literature Festival

    1:34

    The Romanovs: Simon Sebag Montefiore & Richard Evans

    Simon Sebag Montefiore’s bestselling and prize-winning books are now published in 48 languages. He is the author of Catherine the Great & Potemkin, Stalin: The Court of the Red, Young Stalin, Jerusalem: The Biography and The Romanovs. He is also the author of the Moscow Trilogyseries.
    Awards: British Book Awards(2004), Costa Book Award(2007)
    Bestselling/ popular Books: Stalin:The Court of the Red Tsar, Young Stalin

    Richard J. Evans is the author of The Coming of the Third Reich and many other books on Nazi Germany. His latest publication is a major biography of the world’s best-known historian titled Eric Hobsbawm: A Life in History, forthcoming in February 2019. A former Regius Professor of History at Cambridge University, he was knighted for services to scholarship in 2012.

    The Romanovs
    The Romanovs were the most successful dynasty of modern times, ruling a sixth of the world’s surface. How did one family turn a war-ruined principality into the world’s greatest empire? And how did they lose it all? This is the intimate story of 20 tsars and tsarinas, some touched by genius, some by madness, but all inspired by holy autocracy and imperial ambition. Montefiore’s gripping lecture, introduced by Richard Evans, formerly Regius Professor of Modern History at Cambridge University, will reveal their secret world of unlimited power and ruthless empire-building, overshadowed by palace conspiracy, family rivalries, sexual decadence and wild extravagance, and peopled by a cast of adventurers, courtesans, revolutionaries and poets. Talking with dazzling literary flair, drawing on new archival research, The Romanovs is at once an enthralling chronicle of triumph and tragedy, love and death, a universal study of power and an essential portrait of the empire that still defines Russia today.
    Presented by The J. Paul Getty Trust Series

  • The Princess in the Asylum: Louise of Belgium

    28:14

    A story of love, hate, betrayal, and one of the world’s largest inheritances.

    Princess Louise of Belgium was the eldest daughter of King Leopold II and Queen Marie Henriette. Her disastrous marriage to Prince Philipp of Saxe-Coburg und Gotha took her from being a sheltered sixteen-year-old child to a Real Housewife of Imperial Vienna. Her adventures as she searched for love and happiness made her world-famous...or maybe I should say infamous. Those adventures took her from a palace to an asylum, and from the south of France to a simple inn in Poland. This is a riches-to-rags story that left Louise without the money to bury her one true love. I hope you enjoy meeting her. Whether you think she was her own worst enemy or the victim of a misogynist culture, you're absolutely right. ;)

    I have no idea why this story isn't a movie yet. History is so awesome.

    ABOUT THE GIRL IN THE TIARA
    ----------------------------------------------------
    I tell stories about tiaras and the fascinating royal women who wore them. Join me as I follow these tiaras across generations and countries, through wars and revolutions and—sometimes—into darkness and disappearance and destruction.

    This isn't the kind of history your professor lectured about. Instead, think of this as conversational history, like a mash-up of Drunk History and The Crown. Yes, there's a little swearing. There's also humor and heart and a boatload of compassion for these amazing royal women.

    ABOUT ME
    -------------------
    I never intended to start a channel or a website about tiaras and royal history. But a midlife crisis forced me to re-examine my life. I gave up fiction writing after self-publishing 9 of the 10 books I'd written and earning next to nothing.

    Instead of the misery of marketing books, I turned to my first love...royal history. So here I am, a 40-something burnout, trying to start over by recapturing her love of history, royal women, and their jewels.

  • 5. The Waning of Religious Authority

    42:13

    France Since 1871 (HIST 276)

    Religion in France after the Revolution can be understood in terms of two forms of de-Christianization. The first of these is political, and takes place in the de jure separation of church and state. The second is a decline in religious practice among individual citizens. While the history of the former change is well documented, the latter is a more ambiguous phenomenon. Despite the statistical decline in religious participation in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries, Catholicism in particular continues to play a significant role in the cultural imagination, or imaginaire, of many French people.

    00:00 - Chapter 1. Catholicism and the Rest: Religious Distribution in France
    04:41 - Chapter 2. The Decline of 'The Awful Thing': Anti-Clericalism and De-Christianization
    21:34 - Chapter 3. Regional Differences in Religiosity
    30:04 - Chapter 4. The Role of Women: Finding Independence through the Catholic Church
    32:45 - Chapter 5. Disentangling Church and State: Regional Devotion and Developments
