  1. From the Revolutionary Point of View, the Counterrevolution Is a Movement In Itself
  2. Counterrevolution or Counterrevolutions
  3. Conclusion

The term counterrevolution has its roots in the middle of the Eighteenth century. If we have to completely understand why there was a counterrevolution, we have to first define this word properly. Unless properly defines, it could cover diverse realities depending on the context and the period concerned. The theoretical aspect of this movement was born in opposition to the Enlightenment and its liberal philosophy in the 1770's. These theories were based on religious and conservative principles put into words in France by authors such as Mellet du Pan, De Bonald and Maistre. Even if they did not define themselves as counterrevolutionaries, mainly because the French Revolution was not initiated at that time, they gave birth to the theoretical tools which lead to the Counterrevolution movement.
