Survivre malgré la loi. Le contournement des édits de pacification

Abstract : With the "peace of Religion" initiated by the edicts of pacification (1562-1598), in each bailliage, Protestants were granted temples and cemeteries - often far from city centers. If they want to survive as a group and sometimes as people, then the Huguenots have no choice but to try to play with the rules, their interpretation and their applicability. On the other hand, if they wanted to save their souls and ward off "heretical" pollution, Catholics had also to try to circumvent the law by keeping as far as possible the Protestant temple. The wars of Religion are then pursued through peace, but in the normative sphere, according to various circumvention of the rules: to be interested in the conditions of application of a text of law, that is to say its The usual circumvention makes it possible to explode the fiction of the unitary character of formal law and to insist on the plurality of normative sources under the Ancien Régime. This is all the more true as the crisis context favors the collapse of consensus around standards.
