Les massacres de la République romaine : De l’exemplum à l’objet d’histoire (XVIe – XXIe siècles)

Abstract : This article looks at the place of Antiquity, and more precisely the history of the Roman Republic, by focusing on the issue of massacre and the reflection it gave rise to from the sixteenth century onwards. Thus, the perspective of this article is both historical and historiographical. The Roman massacres first served as exempla, before historians gradually appropriated the notion and turned it into a historical question. The diachronic analysis allows us to better understand the interactions between contemporary experiences and the use or study of Roman experiences in the work of artists, intellectuals, jurists and especially historians. The specificity of the Roman Republic with regard to massacres is also highlighted: the simultaneous practice of political and military massacres.
