Reconstruction of the Government
Concordant of 1801
CONCORDANT of !801- Before Napoleon the French Revolution did not like the Catholic Church because they believed that the church was corrupt and did help the people and just took money, because of this they exiled many Catholic clergy men and sent many into hiding as well. When Napoleon took power he invited the Catholic church back into his realm and established the Catholic religion as a religion in France, but under his rules, he allowed the Catholic church's back into France, but he appointed the Bishops and they paid taxes to the French Government. This made Napoleon more powerful as well as making peace with the pope who was a powerful ally. This was not in line with the French Revolution as they got rid of the Catholic Church in France. It did have a legacy after Napoleon and was a law until 1905, and France is still a majority Catholic country today.
Financial System- Before Napoleon, they tried to make sure that everybody paid taxes and made money by selling church lands. When Napoleon came to power the French economy had many banks that printed bank notes that had no worth to them, he made sure the banks all formed a national bank called the Bank de France, this eliminated inflation by ensuring only the bank of France was the only bank that could print bank notes, France flourished. Napoleon’s financial changes/reforms were in line with Revolutionary ideas, and they did leave a legacy beyond his rule.
