Fostering Christian discipleship in the late modern milieu in the diakonia of koinonia and in the recognition that "the Eucharist is the only place of resistance to annihilation of the human subject."
Four quick facts on the attribution of “Let them eat cake” to Marie Antoinette
1) It is highly unlikely she ever said such a thing
2) At least one variation of the “Let them eat cake” story was around before 1789 and was also attributed to Marie-Thérèse, the Spanish princess who married King Louis XIV in 1660
3) Jean-Jacques Rousseau included a variation of this story in his Confessions, published in 1766, attributing like words to “a great princess,” most likely to Marie-Thérèse
4) Just when this sad sentence was first attributed to Marie Antoinette, we don’t really know, but likely as a libel not long after the Revolution- not really sure what I was thinking in my previous post about when this was attributed to her.
Anyway, the video was cool.
