S'assembler, délibérer, enregistrer au XIVe siècle : quand Marseille se constitue en institution

Abstract : The activity of the Council of Marseilles during the 14th century appears to be strictly dominated by the Angevin power, according to the city statutory texts, which were elaborated in the mid-13th century, and are well-known since Regine Pernoud’s editing work. However, the Council’s day-to-day is extensively documented by deliberative writings, permitting close observation of the actual power games between the royal officers and the councilors. In this article, a study of the city registers sheds new light on the statutory norms which were progressively re-elaborated over the decades. Next, the criterion of the Council’s efficiency is brought into question, leading to the idea of a gradual development of an autonomous government built upon the city assembly and its written and legal activity, as seen from the perspective of its everyday practices.
