jul 12, 1791 - Civil Constitution of the Clergy

Description:

Under the Civil Constitution of the Clergy, issued in 1790, bishops and priests became elected, salaried officials. The Civil Constitution ended papal authority over the French Church and dissolved convents and monasteries. Many bishops and priests refused to accept it, and the pope condemned it. When the government punished clergy who refused to support it, a huge gulf opened between revolutionaries in Paris and the peasantry in the provinces.
