Abstract
    Historical seismicity of Hainaut, Flanders and Artois was only known until tomorrow by incomplete compilations without critical value. A revision of sources and a new survey of texts connected with past earthquakes (about fifteen from 330 to 1671, and specially the so called disaster of 1317 in Eastern Flanders) and to propose a more correct localization of the earthquakes of 1000, 1081 and 1095. On the other hand, a new catalogue of the earthquakes occurring from 700 till 1800 in the investigated area, has been elaborated. With the help of a copious documentation, it has been possible to make a more detailed study of the three great earthquakes of 1382, 1449 and 1580, which affected at one and the same time England and the Continent.
