L'identité par la distinction : Les robes syndicales des petites villes de Bresse (XVe-XVIIIe siècle)

Denise Turrel

Abstracts

Small towns want to imitate their chief town - this one wants to be distinguished, in a symbolic way, from smaller cities. Through this process, a contest for dignity spreads out, in ceremonies, between municipal officers of cities of the same country. Through the regional example of Bresse, this paper studies mainly both important periods (the end of the XVth century and the end of the XVIIIth century), when the fights for honor are focused on the colour of mayors' suits. This emulation ends during the French Revolution, with the choice of the tricoloured sash which makes all mayors equal.
