Retour sur l'un des épisodes fondateurs de los angeles country France et du roman nationwide : l. a. victoire des chevaliers de Philippe Auguste lors de l. a. batailles de Bouvines

La bataille de Bouvines, remportée le 27 juillet 1214 par Philippe Auguste, près de Lille, sur un empereur allemand, un comte de Flandre et d'autres coalisés, que finançait tous le roi d'Angleterre, a été l'un des événements les plus célébrés de l'histoire de France. Du xiiie au xxe siècle, elle a été considérée comme un succès décisif, obtenu au terme de combats difficiles qui avaient mis à l'épreuve le roi, sa chevalerie et ses communes. Philippe Auguste n'avait-il pas mordu los angeles poussière et failli être tué ? Vainqueur avec l'aide de Dieu, après une grosse frayeur, il avait pu ensuite traîner en charrette, jusqu'à Paris, le comte de Flandre prisonnier, blessé, exposé aux quolibets (" te voilà ferré, Ferran ! "). Bouvines couronnait ainsi l'un des règnes les plus constructifs de notre histoire, et son " keepsake ", mêlant l'histoire aux légendes, pouvait à los angeles fois galvaniser los angeles France dans ses guerres nationales et alimenter le débat politique sur los angeles royauté, l. a. noblesse, l'armée populaire.

Sur l'ampleur de l. a. bataille de Bouvines comme sur los angeles possibilité d'en connaître exactement le déroulement, Voltaire et Michelet avaient déjà exprimé des doutes. Un essai fameux et suggestif de Georges Duby les a repris en 1973. Dominique Barthélemy approfondit et réoriente los angeles critique historique, au terme d'enquêtes serrées sur les chevaliers présents à l. a. bataille et sur l'élaboration et l. a. réécriture des récits de Bouvines. Il begin par raconter l. a. bataille en l'inscrivant dans son contexte féodal, et en suggérant qu'elle a été dramatisée à dessein par los angeles propagande capétienne. Il entraîne ensuite son lecteur, avec vivacité, dans un tourbillon de récits sélectifs et d'affabulations médiévales et modernes dont il tente à chaque fois de lui expliquer les enjeux.

Est-ce que pour autant tout est fake dans ce chapitre de l. a. traditionnelle histoire de France, et celle-ci n'est-elle qu'un " roman nationwide " ? C'est ce que l'on n'est pas forcément obligé d'en conclure.

Agrégé et docteur, Dominique Barthélemy est professeur d'histoire médiévale à l'université de Paris IV-Sorbonne et à l'École pratique des hautes études. Auteur reconnu, il a déjà publié L'An mil et l. a. Paix de Dieu. los angeles France chrétienne et féodale, 980-1060
ainsi que, chez Perrin, La Chevalerie.

Royauté et idéologie au Moyen Âge: Bas-Empire, monde franc, - download pdf or read online

By Yves Sassier

los angeles longue période de l’histoire médiévale qui s’étend du IVe au XIIe siècle est dominée par une certaine imaginative and prescient du monde : celle d’une humanité pécheresse en marche vers Dieu, dont le séjour terrestre n’est qu’une étape douloureuse dans l’attente de son Salut. 
Or, très tôt, les clercs ont développé l’idée que le pouvoir terrestre avait un rôle à jouer au regard de cette destinée spirituelle de l’humanité et qu’une étroite collaboration s’imposait entre puissance royale et puissance sacerdotale. Mais sur quelles bases établir cette collaboration et quelle position y assigner au prince ? Ce dernier serait-il perçu comme le médiateur entre Dieu et les hommes, nécessairement placé dans une place de « suréminence » et donc d’irresponsabilité devant ses sujets ? Ou bien le gouvernant ne serait-il qu’un homme parmi d’autres, soumis comme eux à los angeles médiation des prêtres ? remark, enfin, définir le bon roi et quelles devraient être les formes de son motion ? 
Ces questions ont fait l’objet, dès los angeles fin de l’Antiquité, de grands débats que l’on go well with ici, au sein du monde franc et en France, jusqu’au seuil du XIIIe siècle. 
À travers les cas très concrets des souverains romano-barbares, puis des Carolingiens, au pouvoir hégémonique de plus en plus critiqué, cet ouvrage permet de comprendre remark s’est constituée, autour de los angeles royauté, l’idéologie qui l’a portée, inspirée et contestée. 

Yves Sassier, Docteur en droit, agrégé des facultés de droit (droit romain et histoire du droit), est professeur d’histoire des associations médiévales à l’université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Il est notamment l’auteur de Hugues Capet (Fayard, 1987), Louis VII (Fayard 1991) et co-auteur avec O. Guillot et A. Rigaudière de Pouvoirs et associations dans l. a. France médiévale (Armand Colin, 2 vol. 1994).

CHAPTER I
A moved quickly PILGRIMAGE
In the 1st days of March, 1919, I made hurriedly a pilgrimage that may be made in additional leisurely demeanour through millions of Canadians in coming years. For whereas the reminiscence of the good warfare endures and Canada keeps her nationwide awareness, Canadians, new release after new release for hundreds of years to return, will stick with the Canadian manner of glory over the battlefields of France and Flanders, with reverent hearts and shining eyes, studying anew the tale of what is going to no doubt consistently stay the main romantic web page in our nationwide historical past. For loss of time I needed to forego my stopover at to the sour battlefields of Flanders: Ypres, the place the Canadians held the road opposed to all odds while German hopes for the Channel ports seemed for the instant to be on the brink of fulfilment; Festubert, St. Eloi and Sanctuary wooden, the scenes of determined encounters the place the Canadians realized not easy classes within the artwork of thrashing the Boche; and Passchendaele, the place the very uncertain and questionable Flanders crusade of 1917 had a effective finale by way of the resounding fulfillment of the Canadian corps in shooting the ridge which had see you later defied attack. however the different Canadian battle-fronts I observed, albeit hurriedly and lower than climatic conditions which have been faraway from propitious; and maybe a few notes of my impressions is probably not solely missing in curiosity to the Canadian public.
But earlier than occurring to this anything will be acknowledged at the basic topic of visits to the Canadian battlefields of the western ecu entrance. in the interim after all this zone is sealed to viewers. It constitutes an army region that could in basic terms be entered less than the authority of a "white pass." except one is observed through a member of the army employees he can't get this cross nor wouldn't it be of use to him simply because there's during this belt of desolate tract which lies athwart one of many oldest and so much populous components in Europe no technique of transportation and no lodging for the unattached civilian. yet this in fact is a situation that may quickly pass.
In a year's time, or much less, the tides of shuttle will pour over those highways; and one of the travelers can be every type and prerequisites of guys; from the idle sightseers looking a brand new sensation amidst those mute memorials of human clash to the reverent pilgrim following step-by-step the line of sacrifice and glory trodden by way of his countrymen within the nice Crusade.
It is fascinating that for Canadians making this pilgrimage there will be, so that you can communicate, a crushed course which they could stick with with the knowledge that, with not less than time, they could deliver away with them anything forthcoming enough knowing of Canada's contribution to the good ecu campaigns. there's a proposition, no longer with no powerful help in military circles, that Canada may still erect and continue in perpetuity a couple of conflict shrines which might be stations in this pilgrimage. The steered websites are Ypres, Vimy Ridge, Bourlon wooden and a few aspect within the district of Amiens, both in Courcelette or extra south, within the song of the Canadian avalanche of August eight, 1918. those shrines, it truly is proposed, should still comprise plans of the adjacent battle-fields in topographical reduction, maps, diagrams, specific histories of the activities, info as to the Canadian cemeteries within the neighborhood—they may be the headquarters for all Canadian, ten, twenty or fifty years consequently, should want to be aware of. If this plan is conducted there also needs to be on hand professional Canadian publications absolutely outfitted to inform the tale of Canadian achievement.
