The Archives or the Deffered Materiality of Power. Titles, Platforms or Substitutes of Sovereignty

During the 19th century, modern States, whether democratic or not democratic, created institutions which, under the more or less generic appellation “National Archives”, were destined to receive the material traces of their juridical and/or constitutional power. But what significance should be given to the deposit in the archives of founding acts of sovereignty such as oaths, covenants or acts of law? Looking at the complex relationships between the archives and sovereignty, the article reveals to what extent the material imagination of Western sovereignty
is closely linked to three successive figures embodying power through the institution of the archives: the treasury, the repository of laws and the national necropolis.
