Opis: Bastards - Matthew Gerber

Children born out of wedlock were commonly stigmatized as "bastards" in early modern France. Deprived of inheritance, they were said to have neither kin nor kind, neither family nor nation. But why was this the case? Gentler alternatives to "bastard" existed in early modern French discourse, and many natural parents voluntarily recognized and cared for their extramarital offspring. Drawing upon a wide array of archival and published sources, Matthew Gerber has reconstructed numerous disputes over the rights and disabilities of children born out of wedlock in order to illuminate the changing legal condition and practical treatment of extramarital offspring over a period of two and half centuries. His book reveals that the exclusion of extramarital offspring from the family was perpetually contested in early modern France. Legal debate over illegitimacy carried political implications for France's dynastic monarchy. When Louis XIV, the Sun King, created a political firestorm by declaring his own extramarital offspring to be capable of inheriting the French crown, political theorists drew upon precedents of private law to argue for or against the exclusion of children born out of wedlock from the throne. Conversely, lawyers and litigants frequently invoked political interest in the course of private lawsuits involving extramarital offspring. In tracing the evolution of early modern debates over illegitimacy, Bastards offers a political history of the family from the oblique perspective of those who were theoretically excluded from it. With a cast of characters ranging from royal bastards to foundlings, Bastards offers a broad exploration of the relationship between social and political change in the early modern era. It offers new insight into the changing nature of early modern French law, revealing its evolving contribution to the historical construction of both the family and the state.
"Impressive first monograph Gerber's work is a good example of the 'new' legal history. His work makes a valuable contribution to ongoing scholarly debates regarding law, family, and the early modern state." --American Historical Review


"Gerber provides a complex, compelling account of legal and social change surrounding illegitimacy in early modern France...[A] sophisticated, significant work...Highly recommended." --CHOICE


"In this formidable study, Matthew Gerber traces the legal transformation of a social category in early modern France--the children born out of wedlock, or 'bastards, ' whose legal disabilities were inborn and rights hedged. He shows how the interactive social demands and legal actions in the greater legal community reconfigured the way 'extra-marital' children born to a parent, or parents, determined to claim them were related to expanding notions of familial norms and developing state concerns for child welfare." -Sarah Hanley, University of Iowa


"Matthew Gerber combines dazzling erudition and great ambition to produce a pioneering political history of the early modern family and a persuasively sophisticated reinterpretation of the early modern legal system." --Julie Hardwick, author of Family Business: Litigation and the Political Economiesof Daily Life in Early Modern France


"Demonstrating profound expertise in early modern law, Matthew Gerber offers a highly original and much needed history of illegitimacy in Old Regime France. Bastards moves deftly between families, law, and politics to rethink family-state relations in the absolutist era."-Suzanne Desan, author of The Family on Trial in Revolutionary France
