Officiers «moyens», sociabilité et Franc-maçonnerie Un chantier prometteur


  • Pierre-Yves Beaurepaire


[eng] During the 18th Century, the French masonic lodges gather several hundreds of middle rank civil officers. Their files surveyed in the data base "50000 freemasons in 18th Century France" contribute to precise our knowledge of this key category of the urban elites. Their personal writings bring light on the relational spaces in which they live and move and their "social networking ". This article presents some of the orientations of a promising research project. [fre] Au XVIIIe siècle, les loges françaises réunissent plusieurs centaines d'officiers «moyens». Leurs archives versées dans la base de données relationnelles «50000 francs-maçons en France au XVIIIe siècle» contribuent à mieux les faire connaître. Leurs écrits personnels éclairent leur espaces relationnels, les postures qu'ils y adoptent et les stratégies qu'ils y déploient. Cet article présente quelques-unes des orientations d'un chantier prometteur.
