Historical background


ASSEMBLY OF THE CLERGY AND RELIGIOUS CHIPS

The Assembly of the clergy is the ecclesiastical institution of the ancien regime France. She enjoys the protection of the King and tax immunity (formulated at the Councils of Lateran III and IV - 1179 and 1215). Two kinds of assemblies are distinguished: small, say "meetings of accounts", bringing together thirty-two Members (two per province) and large assemblies (sixty-four deputies) called to resolve religious issues ( relations with Rome, Protestants, Jansenism, etc..). The last meeting was held in 1788. Biblio:. MOUSNIER R., "The Institutions of France under the absolute monarchy," Paris, 1974, vol. I, p. 284-288;. BLET P.,. "The clergy of France and the monarchy Study on general assemblies of the clergy of France in 1615-1666," 2 vols, Rome, 1959.
