Oh. Okay. Being completely ignorant is better than being a bigot at least.vanesch said:I think he's referring to the period just after the revolution called La Grande Terreur when Robbespierre had some fuses blowing in his brain and became totally paranoia, chopping heads off all over the place... until they chopped his head off.
Yeah, and the word Terreur wasn't invented at that time, or later to describe that time. Besides, it was 16th century French so most likely had a rather different meaning and/or spelling, ect.Now, it is probably not the best translation to translate "La Grande Terreur" into the Big Terrorist :-)
