History Claude Emmanuel Joseph Pierre, Marquis de Pastoret (1755-1840), was a French politician and writer. A member of the nobility, he started out as a lawyer before entering political life during the French Revolution. Initially a moderate, he held administrative posts under Napoleon, before returning to the political limelight after the Restoration. A Freemason, Claude de Pastoret proposed transforming the church of Sainte-Geneviève in Paris into a "patriotic Pantheon" dedicated to the great figures of France, thus changing the building into the "French Pantheon".
