City can be a cross which symbolizes the convergence of roads that bring in and redistribute men, merchandise and ideas. On the other side, city can be a circle that represent a wall or moat which keeps citizens together, sheltered from the cold. 2. What do the expressions "le tout Paris" or "beau monde" mean? Give Examples specific to the Parisian experience. " Le tout Paris” means all of Paris and represents the elite class of the city. The example could be celebrities. "Beau Monde” means the beautiful people and represents the smart set, a group of people that leads the trend of fashion not only on clothing or other physical characters but also intellectual portraits. The example could be royal family. 3. According to the historians what are the two possible etymological origins of the name "Montmartre"?According to Mackendrick, Montmartre means Mt. Mercury, a geographic location. However, in Horne's Seven Ages of Paris, Montmarte is "Mons Martyrum" , the location of the execution of the first martyrs, Dionysius or Denis at the end of first century A.D.. 4. Name two types of remnants of Roman Paris that can still be seen today. One of the remnants of Roman buildings that can still be seen today in Paris is the amphitheater in the Rue Monge. The other remnants that still exist today is the Parisian baths in Hotel de Cluny . 5. Explain these two privileges to protect the clergy enforced in Philippe Auguste's medieval Paris: 1) privilegium canonis, 2) privilegium fori. Explain briefly why such privileges were necessary. Privilegium Fori requires member of clergy should not be touched by civilian authority and cannot be arrested unless they attack first. This secures the clergy a special tribunal in civil and criminal causes before an ecclesiastical judge Privilegium Canonis requires member of clergy must have trial by his peers if arrested. This can sanction penalty to the clergy.
