Scholars such as Andre Morellet, above,  and Jacques Delille shared similar experiences to that of Lemonnier and likewise promulgated an idealisation of the Ancien Regime that focussed upon its civilised and refined sociability and its willingness to welcome and nurture men of talent.  They challenged portrayals of pre-1789 France as a place of immorality and corruption.

Voltaire and Diderot at the Café Procope.   Habermas argued that the salon was an example of a number of social spaces, including book clubs and coffee houses, that had grown up in urban environments.  Uninhibited by social norms and hierarchies, these public spaces enabled a free flow of ideas that ultimately challenged the ideological underpinnings of an absolutist state.

The Republic of Letters: A Cultural History of the French Enlightenment

In the late 1830s the Duchess of Abrantes published a six volume ‘Histoire des salons de Paris’ which championed the narrative of a stable, affluent and cultured Bourbon era. Although this portrayal of salons was criticised by republicans who attacked them for being decadent and corrupt, they didn't question their existence. Thus the fiction of the salon became historical fact and by the turn of the 20th century had made its way into popular histories and thereby into public consciousness.

The work of Habermas thus transformed the salon into a proto-democratic organisation.  Other scholars, such as the historians Francois Furet, Maurice Agulhon and Marc Fumaroli, began to build upon this idea until the salon was perceived as occupying a place of pivotal political, intellectual and literary importance.

In both the case of Geoffrin and Deffand, had they, in fact, been celebrated Enlightenment salonnières (whether or not the particular terms ‘salon’ or ‘salonnière’ were deployed) there should have been ample proof to substantiate this, either amongst their own records or the records of others who attended their salons.
