Read the passage from sugar changed the world. you could date a great change in the world to a visit one madame villeneuve made to france in 1714. that year, pauline, an enslaved woman from the caribbean, arrived in france as the personal servant of her mistress. when madame villeneuve set off from the coast to visit paris, she left pauline in a convent. the young woman spent her time studying with the nuns and went so far in her training that she asked to become a nun herself and remain in the convent. the nuns agreed, which enraged madame villeneuve. she rushed to a judge, demanding to have her property back. was pauline a free woman, a bride of christ, or an item to be bought, sold, and warehoused when she was not in use? twenty-three years earlier, king louis xiv had issued a set of rules that defined slavery as legal in the french sugar islands. but when two slaves managed to reach france, he freed them—saying they became free "as soon as they [touched] the soil" of france. the judges sided with pauline—she was real to them, human, not a piece of property. for pauline's judges, as for king louis, slavery far off across the seas was completely different from enslaved individuals in france. what claim do the authors make in this passage? madame villeneuve deserves credit for persuading the judges that enslaved people should not be property. the judges' freeing of pauline would have a significant effect on how people viewed involuntary servitude. because so many other people remained enslaved, pauline's specific case was not very important. the disagreement between king louis xiv and the judges would have major effects on laws.
