Matthew Muniz 4/13/11 Source Report The Third Estate I. Purpose of this document 1) This Source is a letter entitled, “What is the Third Estate?” 2) The Author of this article is Emmauel-Joseph Sieyes. He was educated at a Jesuit school, became a licentiate of the canon law, and was appointed vicar–general by the bishop of Chartres. 3) The contents of the document that are being discussed are that of the Third Estate. It explains the difference between the first two estates and the third. II. Argument 1) The intended audience is us, the people. 2) The text is trying to explain the purpose for the third estate revolting against the other two estates and sparking the French revolution. 3) Should the third estate be an independent nation? 4) Example: “Who then shall dare to say that the Third Estate has not within itself all that is necessary for the formation of a complete nation?” 5) I think that they should be their own nation. The 1 st estate was the Roman Catholic clergy. The 2 nd estate represented the nobility including King Louis XVI. The third estate was the rest of the population and they were the majority of the population. Their society was built off of what family you came from and not by what talents you had. They did all the real work of the nation.
