Élites et pouvoirs : enjeux politiques

Les élites consulaires romanaises, du combat pour les libertés au carnaval de 1580 : radioscopie d'une société urbaine locale

Ludovic Viallet

Abstracts

At the end of the Middle Ages, Romans — commercial town close to the Rhône's valley — is the most dynamic city of Dauphiné. The consulat, set up in 1366 after a long conflict with the chapter of Saint-Barnard's collegiate church, is controled by an élite of merchants and jurists. The study concerns two centuries of local political history by analysing how shopkeepers and artisans, who were excluded from power at the end of the XIVth century, have gradually gained a political space; in the same way, tensions have increased with the élite. In the first part of the XVIth century, the unrest becomes separation, of which the famous Carnival of 1580, studied by E. Le Roy Ladurie, is an expression.
