Gérard Caillat (historian): consular building?

A consular meeting place?

Poldo d'Albenas thought that the Maison Carrée served as a consular building, that is to say the town hall, in the middle ages. Basing his supposition on the name capitolium found in medieval documents, he thought that the Maison Carrée had always been the seat of municipal authority since Roman times, but the historian Gérard Caillat shows that the theory was tinted with political intentions.
