Quand la rage sévissait dans le sud du pays toulousain à la veille de la révolution

Abstract : A new current knowledge on the rabies epidemic that stroke France during the second half of the XVIII th century in the south of Toulouse area (or Bas-Comminges area) before the French Revolution allows, thanks to new documents, to certify that this area was the first one to be affected in a widespread and lastingly way between 1778 and 1786, although it was sporadically affected by "hydrophobia". The latter frightened the population and set off quick responses from public authorities for which the effectiveness is yet not ascertained.
