This chapter situates French missionary priests within a Franco-American ecclesiastical network that took shape in the aftermath of the French Revolution and the erection of the Diocese of Baltimore in 1789. It relates the story of how the first generation of Catholic émigré priests conceived of the Gallican world they left behind in France and the missionary world they found themselves in the United States, seen most clearly in their collective attempts to educate young men for the priesthood in Sulpician seminaries and extend the institutional reach of the church into the American interior.
