Le corps, les rites, les rêves, le temps : Essais d'anthropologie médiévale

By Jean-Claude Schmitt

Qui veut comprendre le Moyen Âge doit le tenir à distance : poser sur lui le regard de l'anthropologue étudiant une société étrangère à sa propre tradition et à ses habitudes de pensée. C'est los angeles première ambition de ce livre : mettre en garde contre l'usage de catégories, l. a. "religion" par exemple, ou l'"individu", dont il convient de saisir l. a. relativité historique. Voilà qui peut sembler paradoxal, mais il n'y a pas, au Moyen Âge, de "religion", au sens où nous l'entendons aujourd'hui. Toute une "culture", en revanche, complexe, foisonnante, originale, se déploie selon les différents pôles constitutifs de cette société : les clercs et les laïcs, l. a. cathédrale et le château, los angeles communauté paysanne et l. a. ville. S'en dégagent des conceptions irréductibles aux nôtres, du corps et de los angeles personne, de los angeles croyance et des rêves, des rites et du temps, à l'articulation de l'homme et du divin (ou du démoniaque), de l'ici-bas et de l'au-delà, des pictures et de l'invisible, de los angeles memoria et des futura.Ce livre retrace le parcours sinueux d'une recherche de plus de vingt ans à travers les textes et les photos matters de los angeles tradition médiévale. Il tente de répondre aux questions que pose los angeles building d'une anthropologie historique du Moyen Âge : qu'est-ce qu'une "personne" dans los angeles société médiévale ? Qu'en est-il de los angeles suggestion du "sacré" ? L'idée d'"avenir" est-elle suitable avec los angeles perception eschatologique du temps chrétien ?
