Chapter Summary

Jules Michelet's lectures at the Collège de France were not only a source of intellectual inspiration for wide, cosmopolitan audiences of young men and women from all over Europe, but also the occasion for noisy and emotional displays of republican and national feeling, regarded with caution by the authorities and hotly debated in the press. The Collège de France was unlike any of the higher education institutions of France at the time. The atmosphere at Michelet's lectures at the Collège was electrifying, if not downright chaotic. The Minister of Education, the Comte de Salvandy, openly sought a public denunciation of the two historians by the academic staff of the Collège de France, and, although they did not oblige, Du Prêtre was promptly placed on the censors’ lists.
