Abstract: This thesis attempts to understand the process by which the French Revolution shifted from the hopes and ideals for which it is often remembered to the violence and dictatorial governance that characterized the Reign of Terror--for which the Revolution is also frequently remembered. Much importance is given to the historiography of the French Revolution, both past and present, in the attempt to determine what factors contributed most to the radicalization of the Revolution. The primary thesis is that the Terror can be explained only with attention both to the internal dynamics of revolutionary ideology as well as the circumstances of economic chaos and counterrevolution. It asserts that, while many recent historians have given us a more complete picture of the Revolution and the Terror by focusing on ideological and cultural factors, they have often done so to the detriment of valid aspects of the 'classical' or 'orthodox' explanation.
