His fundamentally conservative message supported the status quo: the king belonged at the top of the social pyramid and the peasants at the bottom. The lower classes were by no means dismissed as an indistinguishable mass. Cessolis clearly pointed out that pawns represented many different métiers, from farmers and artisans to
doctors and apothecaries.

    Is your question about 'indistinguishable mass'? That just means that the lower classes were not just seen as a group that could not be broken up into different sub-groups.

    If your question is about the word dismissed, in this context it means excluded from further consideration.
