Museum of the History of Justice, Crime and Punishment


The Museum’s digital collections bring together digitised documents, the originals of which are held in various repositories, public institutions (National Archives, regional archives, museums, libraries, etc) or private collections (belonging to researchers, collectors, etc).

The collections offer manuscripts, printed documents, audio materials and videos, mostly in French, but also rare documents in Latin, English, Spanish, Italian, German, Dutch, Portuguese, Russian, Esperanto, etc.

These documents are linked as much as possible to the other resources offered by the Museum (e.g., exhibitions and virtual tours) or to Criminocorpus’s online journal.
