Example text

The 60 per cent or more of adult males who were ‘active’ citizens were the social base of a democratization of political culture. In every aspect of public life – administration, the judiciary, the armed forces, the Church, policing – traditions of corporate rights, appointment and hierarchy gave way to civil equality, accountability, and elections within national structures assuming the common identity of French citizens of whatever social or geographic origin.

Moreover, this map of judicial competence improperly matched that of lesser courts, such as the Chambre des comptes and the Cours des aides. A major division into areas of customary and written law between north and south cut across judicial boundaries, and was immeasurably complicated by the existence of special courts and codes for nobles and clergy and those obligated to them, and of up to 60 regional codes for certain offences. The extraordinary complexity of the administration was matched in the organization of the Church.
