Abstract

Les fêtes qui ont célébré au XVIIIe siècle les retours d'exil des magistrats et des cours souveraines ont été dédaignées par les historiens qui ont vu dans ces moments de liesse collective les effets des stratégies politiques du monde judiciaire ou les exagérations de la sensibilité de l'époque. Pourtant, ces fêtes sont profondément originales. Malgré un cadre cérémoniel conventionnel, elles ont permis la prise de conscience de solidarités urbaines, provinciales et nationales autour des «Pères de la Patrie». L'article analyse comment elles ont pu réaliser, un temps, l'union des élites et du peuple, malgré les tensions et les conflits. The festivities that have celebrated the sovereign magistrates' returns from exile during the eighteenth century have been disdained by historians. Those have seen in these collective events the effects of the judicial world political strategies or a consequence of the exarcerbated sensibility of the time. Howewer, these festivities are deeply original. In spite of their ceremonial and conventional features, they have favoured the awareness of urban, provincial and national solidarities, around the «Pères de la Patrie». This article shows how they have realized the temporary union of people and elites, notwithstanding the numerous tensions and conflicts.
