'What all this amounts to is an important, deeply researched and thought-provoking book, which shows that the Festival of the Supreme Being needs to be taken seriously.' Mike Rapport, French History, Volume 31, Issue 3 'It takes courage to re-open the debate on the Supreme Being and show that, despite all its detractors, its Festival was not a mummery, but a joyous demonstration of unity throughout the whole of France. Jonathan Smyth was brave enough to do this, and we are grateful to him for it.' Sophie Wahnich, Historian of the French Revolution. Director of Research, CNRS, Institut Interdisciplinaire du Contemporain.psl, Paris 'This book transforms our understanding of one of the most important cultural events of the French Revolution. Smyth shows us that the Festival was a major cultural event, one in which many people actively participated, both in Paris and the provinces, and which signified the hopes of many for the future of the Revolution.' Marisa Linton, Associate Professor in History at Kingston University -- .
