Re: French Revolution - legal reform

Those are fair points, but the makers of the 1791/95 codes must have felt it was unnecessary.

It has to be said that the restoration of branding doesn't seem to have attracted any great debate at the time - it isn't one of the things that come up in the lists of complaints against Napoleon and there doesn't seem to have been any great pressure to remove it again. The main objections seem to be about arbitrary punishment rather than the nature of the punishment.

A point that does arise from looking at the penal code is that there is no reference to sentencing to 'the galleys', presumably this is the forced labour sentence but it always gets referred to as 'the galleys' in memoirs.

Susan
