Re: French Revolution - legal reform

Kevin,

You can't use the '21st century viewpoint' argument here because it has been shown that branding was abolished under the Revolution, that it was obsolete in England and that it seems to have been abolished in Spain in 1807: reinstating it in 1810 was against the trend of opinion at the time.

It is no news to anyone that the British criminal code of the time and the treatment of prisoners left a lot to be desired, (though at this period there was a lot of agitation for penal reform, which eventually bore fruit) but Napoleon is the subject under discussion and the standards he should be judged by in this context are those of post-revolutionary France.

I have not yet discovered anything that explains the legality of the internal exile for people not convicted of any offence, which was where this discussion started.

regards,

Susan
