Jacobin (politics)
A JACOBIN (French pronunciation: ​ ) was a member of the Jacobin Club , a revolutionary political movement that was the most famous political club during the French Revolution (1789–99). The club was so called from the Dominican convent where they originally met, in the Rue Saint-Jacques (Latin: Jacobus) in Paris. Today, JACOBIN and JACOBINISM are used in a variety of senses.

In France, Jacobin now generally indicates a supporter of a centralized republican state and strong central government powers and/or supporters of extensive government intervention to transform society
