État, nation, archives

Abstract : While an integral part of the state since the 13th Century, the archives create the vehicle whereby force becomes right. Their conservation and classification policies determine the objective conditions of research of chroniclers, jurists and much later of historians. When as a result of the revolution the principle of a unified nation is established in France, the archives are subjected to a thorough reorganization : essential stages in this process are the selection, centralization, classification of documents, and legislation and control of access concerning these documents.
