Chabot, François

(1759-1794)
   political figure
   Born in Aveyron, François Chabot was a defrocked Capuchin who was made the constitutional (jur-ing) bishop of Blois and was elected also as a deputy to the Legislative Assembly, then the Convention (1792). A member of the jacobin and the cordeliers clubs, whose extreme views he shared, Chabot wrote a Catéchisme des sans-culottes and promoted the cult of the Goddess of Reason. He then married a banker's daughter and went into business. Implicated in the scandal involving the liquidation of the Indies Company (1793), he was denounced before the Committee of Public Safety. Accused of embezzlement, he was condemned to death and guillotined along with georges jacques danton and the Indulgents.
