The century begins with terrible winters and the death of Louis XIV. It ends with the great revolution of 1789. Between these two milestones, few events. From an interior point of view, it is quite quiet. No war inside the territory or major epidemic.
And yet, a new world is underway. The end of the reign of Louis XIV, in 1715, which had ended in a stifling moral order, gave way to a kind of mental liberation. With God out of the way, people went much further in all areas, for better or for worse. New foundations are sought for social ties and morality.
