    Research output: Other contribution


    Both Western Europe and Southeast Asia underwent revolutionary transformation in the late eighteenth century, as Victor Lieberman has pointed out.1 In France a profound political revolution began in 1789, three years after the birth of Mathurin-Pierre Pécot in the rural village of Louvaines (Maine-et-Loire), 30km northwest of Angers in western France. During his childhood the revolutionary state closed all churches, confiscated church property, schools and hospitals and sponsored a new ‘Cult of Reason’ to replace the old religion.
