Abstract

In October 1696, the procession from Turin led Marie-Adélaïde de Savoie to Versailles. The marriage contract which now binds her to the Duke of Burgundy, grandson of Louis XIV, will seal, a few months later, the fate of Europe by the peace of Ryswick. From the birth of his daughter, guided by lucid cynicism, Victor Amadeus II had destined her to become a French princess. He succeeds very well. From the outset, the monarch was seduced by the extraversion, the naturalness and simplicity of the child; he found it "at will". Having become duchess of Burgundy, the young woman nevertheless upsets the etiquette of the court of France, confided in the devotions. She quickly becomes the darling of Versailles. Her temper tempers the morose religiosity of her husband; her cheerfulness galvanises around her musicians, composers, choreographers and men of letters. His enthusiasm and his casualness encourage to multiply the balls, the plays, the theatrical performances, the lotteries of chinoiseries ... The taste of the duchess is eclectic. She dances ballet-masquerade, is seduced by the magical fairy tale, touches the harpsichord with a certain talent, applauds the Italian Theater and interprets the sacred tragedies offered by Madame de Maintenon. The last years of the reign of Louis XIV were thus reborn, under the influence of expensive entertainment honored by the king, all a literary, musical, but also architectural patronage, around the work of development of the Menagerie, whose enjoyment is offered to The Duchess. The court emerges from its torpor during this pivotal time that connects the extinct splendors of the court of the Sun King with the excesses of the Regency, then of Louis XV. By illuminating his formative years, studying the patronage of the Duchess of Burgundy within the court system and a policy of distinction marked by the pregnance of several political clans, by questioning the efflorescence of funeral orations of where pierced the disappointed hopes and the collective imagination of the nation, the present volume intends to fill the gaps of contemporary historiography long remained silent on the brief destiny of Marie-Adélaïde of Savoy and the climate of the court of Versailles between 1696 and 1712.

Abstract

Medieval towns, from Portugal to Hungary to Egypt, were places of contact between members of different religious communities, Muslim, Christian and Jewish, who rubbed shoulders in the ports and on the streets, who haggled in the markets, signed contracts, and shared wells, courtyards, dining tables, bath houses, and sometimes beds. These interactions caused legal problems from the point of view of the Jewish, Christian and Muslim judicial scholars of the middle ages, not to mention for the rulers of these towns. These legal attempts to define and solve the problems posed by interreligious relations are the subject of this volume, which brings together the work of seventeen scholars from nine countries (France, Italy, Spain, Hungary, Portugal, Lebanon, Israel, Tunisia, USA), specialists in history, law, archeology and religion.

Abstract

For the popes it was inevitable to maintain relations with the Arab-Muslim world, of course eastern - Egypt and the Middle East - but also Western - Spain and the Maghreb. Thus in 1199, Innocent III addressed himself to the "Miramolin, king of Morocco". Some two hundred and one letters, written during the 13th and 14th centuries, mostly recorded in the registers of the Vatican Secret Archives, help to clarify the position of the Holy See vis-a -vis the Maghreb. In order to carry out their policy and to maintain ties with the faithful, the Popes wrote to the Christian or Muslim sovereigns, sent messengers across the Mediterranean Sea, encouraged the works of the brothers in this part of the world, A bishopric in Marrakesh. They regularly supported attempts to expand Christianity in North Africa, but this was not their only concern. They also cared about the Christians who lived in the Maghreb, whether they were merchants, mercenaries or captives. The papacy had to reconcile these two aspects and had to adapt to the reality of the life of these communities in the land of Islam. Clara Maillard at the MSH of Nantes on December 8, 2011, her thesis in medieval history entitled "Popes and Maghreb in the XIIIth and XIVth centuries, study of apostolic letters from 1199 to 1419", under the direction of John Tolan , Professor at the University of Nantes. She worked with the RELMIN project in 2014 as a post-doctoral student on the pontifical letters concerning Christians who lived in the Maghreb.
