From the help that people gave me in the comments to my last post (thanks for that btw), I discovered that the parts of 'Tacitus' that Camille used in Le Vieux Cordelier are actually from Thomas Gordon's Discourses on Tacitus, published 1728-1731. I went and had a look at that, and found almost exactly what I wanted. (That's the origin of the part that says 'if you do this you're a suspect, but if you do the opposite, then you're a suspect as well'.)

I've pinned down the Mathiez article that a few of you mentioned, it's A. Mathiez, 'Pourquoi parut Le Vieux Cordelier?' in C. Desmoulins, Le Vieux Cordelier, ed. H. Calvet (Paris, 1930, pp. 22-40.) My problem is that I think it would be a massive help to me and I cannot find it anywhere (this is the problem with studying the French Revolution in Australia.) I'm surprised at this, given that it's a 1930 version. All the copies I've seen are from the 19th century.

I've looked in practically every single library catalogue in Australia, and tried several different google searches. What I'm wondering is if anyone has access to a copy and could somehow get it to me through the wonders of the internets, or knows where I could look to find it?

EDIT: Due to the length of this entry, it will be posted in two parts.

In keeping with this month's theme of discussion, I have decided to translate Mathiez' study on the Festival of the Supreme Being for you all. Consider it an early present for the Festival. XD I trust it will prove enlightening and perhaps provoke further discussion.
