Essays exploring political life and thought during the ancien régimein France.Appropriately centred on France, the essays in this volume make a significant contribution to the study of political life and thought during the ancien régime. Scholars in the field of early modern Europe consider various ways in which contemporaries in different walks of life expressed their understanding of, and participation in, the political community, using new approaches drawn from cultural history, the history of ideologies and a resurgence of interest in the history of institutions. Subjects discussed include institutional rivalries and how they complicated efforts to mount opposition to government policies; political thought and concepts such as sovereignty, conciliarism, and dominum; and how contemporary understanding of the political order was worked out in a cultural context. The volume also suggests new directions for research.
