Abstract:

ABSTRACT: Feudal titles to land, property, water, and windmills were among the most valuable and consistently sought after documents because they provided revenue to the Revolution; the state could sell titles to land and property that they acquired from the various Old Regime deposits as Bien Nationaux, thereby accruing a profit for the government. By contrast, titles of nobility, genealogy charts, and other records validating aristocratic privileges-referred in the collectively as purely feudal titles or titles to abolished feudal rights-were among the most sought after documents for annihilation because of the records' association with an abhorrent feudal past.

The law of 7 messidor II originated at the height of radical violence and bloodshed; feudal titles to nobility and privilege fell victim to the National Convention because of the substantial power these records granted to the aristocracy in the feudal past-a past that stood, by its nature, in opposition to the new revolutionary state. The public burning of feudal records at the hands of the public and revolutionary government served as an important and particularly violent show of power-the destruction of records that represented the legal and symbolic power of the aristocracy came to signal an end to the political, social, and economic order of feudalism.
