La justice criminelle sous l'Ancien Régime dans la généralité de Metz : 1744-1780

Abstract : In every aspect the "généralité" of Metz, also named "Trois-Evêchés", was quite different from the other French provinces. It was not, by the way, an authentic territory, but rather a network of roads, whose sole purpose was strategic and linked together various diverse regions. The population was quite heterogeneous, predominately Catholic, but with a Jewish minority and the memory of the Protestant presence in Sedan. Criminality is sometimes only a symptom of other problems, therefore it was interesting for us to try and understand it in this unique and important area for the safety of the kingdom. While this study is not comprehensive, it gives us some indications on the way in which the royal justice was served but also applied to the common people in the last decades of the Ancient Regime.
