Blood and Violence in Early Modern France

The distinction between material and symbolic or psychological factors in unravelling the genealogy of disputes in traditional societies is largely artificial. The word credit applied to both reputation and financial solvency; its essence is captured by the French proverb ‘A good name is sufficient treasure’. Credit is both real and imagined. Nevertheless, clarity requires the origins of conflict to be divided into material and cultural factors. This chapter looks at disputes and violence related to kinship, land and property, and inheritance in France, along with marriage and succession, litigation, prelates, benefices, and tithes.

Keywords:   violence, disputes, France, conflict, kinship, land, inheritance, marriage, litigation, benefices
