1/11 Nuns & Sex in an Old Regime City? -a #nunstastic out of time at the book launch question from @hkellerlapp for @CorinneGressang, @school_tales, @onslies & other nun-scholars. Quick answer - yes nuns were intimately involved in community safeguarding & communal complicity.
2/11 Nuns has multiple roles: a) intrinsic to pre and post natal as nurses at the Hôtel-Dieu where unmarried women could give birth for no charge or (very rarely) be detained for promiscuity. https://www.patrimoine-lyon.org/la-presqu-ile/centre-ville-2
3/11 They also provided care to newborns charged to the care of the HD after birth - an option young couples sometimes exercised to manage the challenges of not being ready/willing to marry. (Newborns were dispatched from the HD to wet-nurses within a few days.)

1/The GNA has managed to break through defences and capture the Al-Watiya airbase...a major victory for them & probably means the LNA will no longer be able to seriously threaten Tripoli

1/ An archival puzzle (always look at the back page): Accounting for foundlings, "debauched girls" & Colbert's projects for Louis XIV's gloire. Or how little details speak to metanarratives. I see a note in my book mss cites a 1660-1671 register for 1650s material. Hhm
2/ The source is a Hôtel-Dieu register & the catalogue description is "Registre de remises des enfants exposés et abandonès à la Charité 1660-1671." This document is on line w/ a lot of other great material about e-mod foundlings digitized by @ArchivesdeLyon.
3/ I looked at the document and noticed "register" seems a bit formal for a sheaf of paper tied with string and the first page includes only a brief note. Frustrated! Then I looked at the last page ...
