  1. ^ at the Revolution the canonesses were expelled, and a certain Coignard took over the buildings as a nursing home for sick prisoners of the Terror. The gardens however were used for the disposal of the bodies of the victims of the guillotine. After the revolution a community of canonesses was re-installed here, as a memorial to the many dead [1]
