on history, and thence to Versailles (Versailles, Yvelines) to take his seat in the senate to which he had been chosen by the ''département'' of the Seine (Seine (département)). In December 1871, he was elected a member of the Académie française in spite of the renewed opposition of Msgr. Dupanloup, who resigned his seat rather than receive him. Religious career Regardless of Sieyès' embrace of Enlightenment (Age of Enlightenment) thinking, he was ordained to the priesthood in 1773. In spite of this, he was not hired immediately. He spent this time researching philosophy and developing music until about a year later in October 1774 when, as the result of demands by powerful friends, he was promised a canonry in Brittany. Van Deusen, Glyndon G., p. 13 Unfortunately for Sieyès, this canonry went into effect only when the preceding holder died. At the end of 1775, Sieyès acquired his first real position as secretary to the bishop of Tréguier where he spent two years as deputy of the diocese. It is here that he sat in the Estates of Brittany and became disgusted with the immense power the privileged classes held. In 1780 the bishop of Tréguier was transferred to the bishopric of Chartres. He became aware of how easy it was for nobles to advance in ecclesiastical offices compared to commoners. Sieyes was an ambitious man; therefore, he resented the privileges granted to the nobles within the Church system and thought the patronage system was a humiliation for commoners. William H. Sewell Jr., ''A Rhetoric of Bourgeois Revolution The Abbe Sieyes and What is the Third Estate?'' 14. Sieyès accompanied him there as his vicar general where he eventually became a canon of the cathedral and chancellor (Chancellor (ecclesiastical)) of the diocese of Chartres (Bishop of Chartres).

In Romania (Romanian cuisine) they are used as a base for a liquer called afinată - the name of the fruit in Romanian (Romanian language) is ''afină''. Poole is a cross-Channel (English Channel) port for passengers and freight with up to seven sailings a day in the summer season. Ferry services from Poole Harbour to Cherbourg are provided by Brittany Ferries who operate two ferries from Poole: the ''Normandie Vitesse'' (MV Normandie Vitesse) and the ''Cotentin'' (MV Cotentin). The ''Normandie Vitesse'' provides a high-speed daily passenger service to Cherbourg between May and September; the ''Cotentin'' freight ship covers the Poole-Cherbourg route year-round and runs a weekend service between Poole and Santander (Santander, Cantabria), Spain.

(See the town's location on Multimap) The crisis which resulted from the declaration of war by the Convention against Great Britain (Kingdom of Great Britain) and the Dutch Republic (1 February 1793, ''see French Revolutionary Wars''), and a little later against Spain, made Fouché famous as one of the Jacobin radicals holding

While the armies of the First Coalition threatened the north-east of France, a revolt of the Royalist peasants (Revolt in the Vendée) in Brittany and La Vendée menaced the Convention on the west. That body sent Fouché with a colleague, Villers, as representatives on mission invested with almost dictatorial powers for the crushing of the revolt of "the whites" (the royalist colour).

Some good examples of shear zones of the strike-slip type are the South Armorican Shear Zone (Armorican Massif#Geology) and the North Armorican Shear Zone in Brittany, the North Anatolian Fault Zone in Turkey, and the Dead Sea Fault (Dead Sea Transform) in Israel. Shear zones of the transform type are the San Andreas Fault in California, and the Alpine Fault in New Zealand. A shear zone of the thrust type is the Moine Thrust in northwestern Scotland. An example for the subduction zone setting is the Japan Median Tectonic Line. Detachment fault related shear zones can be found in southeastern California, e.g. the Whipple Mountain Detachment Fault (Whipple Mountains#Geology). An example of a huge anastomosing shear-zone is the Borborema Shear Zone (Borborema Plateau) in Brazil. Barzaz Breizh The "Ballads of Brittany".

Abbot of Llancarfan In adulthood, Cadoc refused to take charge of his father's army, preferring to fight for Christ instead. He proselytized over a large area of Wales and Brittany. He built a church and monastery at (or near) Llancarfan (now in the south of Glamorgan): according to legend two stags came forward and Cadoc was able to yoke them to a cart to help with the building works. As a result, Cadoc is often pictured with a stag, and the current church at Llancarfan boasts a weathervane in the shape of one; the Welsh name ''Lancarfan'' means ''Church of the Stags''.

Renan's head was turned away from the building, while Athena, beside him, was depicted raising her arm, which was interpreted as indicating a challenge to the church during an anti-clerical phase in French official culture.

Brittany

'''Brittany''' ( .

The historical province of Brittany is now split among five French departments: Finistère in the west, Côtes-d'Armor in the north, Ille-et-Vilaine in the north east, Loire-Atlantique in the south east and Morbihan in the south on the Bay of Biscay. Since reorganisation in 1956, the modern administrative region of Brittany (Brittany (administrative region)) comprises only four of the five Breton departments, or 80% of historical Brittany. The remaining area of old Brittany, the Loire-Atlantique department around Nantes, now forms part of the Pays de la Loire region.

At the 2010 census, the population of historic Brittany was estimated to be 4,475,295. Of these, 71% lived in the region of Brittany, while 29% lived in the Loire-Atlantique department. In 2008, the largest metropolitan areas were Nantes (854,807 inhabitants), Rennes (654,478 inhabitants), and Brest (Brest, France) (311,735 inhabitants).
