Extrait de l’ouvrage

The curious phrase lit de justice originated in the fourteenth century and by the first
decade of the fifteenth century designated particularly important royal sessions of the Parlement of Paris. Its institutional significance was recognized when in April 1485 Charles VIII (1483-98) declared that in the Parlement of Paris "and nowhere else is held and must be held our lit de justice."
