La prostitution en Midi toulousain à la fin du Moyen âge (XIIIe-XVIe siècles)

Abstract : Between the Thirteenth and the Sixteenth Century, the apparition of public brothels -whose function was to regulate venal sex- transformed deeply the landscape of prostitution in the Midi toulousain. The institutionalization of prostitution was contemporary with a period of urban development and with the reintroduction of the political model of the consulate for the specific case of the Midi toulousain. The way in which prostitution was organized—whether it was an institutional activity or whether it circumvented the control of lay as well as Church authorities—offers us a global picture of society of the late Middle Ages. This issue of prostitution will lead us to consider the regulating actions taken by the political powers. We will also analyze the spatial repartition of prostitution, both in the cities and in the countryside. This study will also assess the multi-faceted parts played by the various actors of the world of prostitution.
