The intense interest in the Hebrew language during the Renaissance was based on more than linguistic consideration alone, but was part of a much larger religious and cultural framework. This volume is a collection of articles by European scholars on this subject, mostly French, in an attempt to look at many of the diverse aspects of Hebrew during the early modern period.

La France et la Méditerranée

Vingt-sept siècles d'interdépendance

Edited by Malkin

France and the Mediterranean are two terms of which, paradoxically, the latter Is easier to define. As Fernand Braudel so aptly stated, "France is diversity".
France was never one and the same throughout the ages, from the time of Greek Marseilles and the roman Galliae, through the political, ethnic, linguistic and cultural metamorphoses of the Middle Ages and the early modern period, until the apparent unity of the present-day republic.
At the same time this book indicates that "France and the Mediterranean" is a valid subject for a historical study during every period, in spite of the ambiguity of the terms.
The link between France and the Mediterranean is discussed in this book form various aspects: historiography, urban and economic life, population movements and colonisation, nations and minorities, ideologies and images, powers and conquests. This wide coverage aims to show that France and the mediterranean, taken together, constitute a valid historical concept.

Winner of the 2015 Jozef IJsewijn Prize for best first book on a Neo-Latin topic

Early modern commentaries on Statius’ Thebaid have been little studied; even that by Barth (1664-5), which holds a conspicuous place among them, has only been taken into account now and then, and often in a rather superficial way. The present book, which makes use of unpublished archival material, offers a comprehensive overview of these works (contexts, contents, interconnections). It is particularly interested in 16th-17th commentators and strives to give Barth’s achievement the attention it deserves. By closely looking at the various ways in which the commentaries respond to Statius’ poem, but also at the various kinds of discourse they present, it casts a new light on the reception of the Thebaid and on the early modern practice of commentary-writing.

Les anciens commentaires imprimés de la Thébaïde de Stace ont été peu étudiés ; même celui de Barth (1664-5), qui occupe parmi eux une place éminente, n’a été pris en compte que de manière ponctuelle et souvent superficielle. Le présent ouvrage, étayé par des documents d’archives inédits, offre un examen général de ces travaux (contextes, contenus, filiations). Il s’intéresse particulièrement aux commentateurs des 16e-17e s. et s’efforce d’accorder à Barth l’attention qu’il mérite. En se penchant sur les différentes façons dont les exégèses répondent au poème de Stace, mais aussi sur les différents types de discours qu’elles présentent, il apporte un éclairage nouveau sur la réception de la Thébaïde et sur la pratique du commentaire au début de l’époque moderne.

Violence de l'interprétation (XVIe-XVIIe s).

Le texte devant l'inquisition

Séries:

Edited by Anne Duprat

This collection of essays aims to measure the minimum scope for interpretation, with reference to texts produced under absolute constraints: those governing the trials of the Spanish Inquisition, as well as trials for witchcraft and libertinage, in polemical writings during the French wars of religion, or in the words of common law convicts in Italy and England.
Written by ten specialists in Early Modern literature and edited by Anne Duprat, these studies examine the violence inflicted on certain texts via the act of interpretation, and the means of resistance used in response. The essays illustrate how the violence of interpretation can also create the conditions necessary for the text to take on meaning.

Cet essai collectif propose de mesurer l’espace minimal nécessaire au déploiement d’une interprétation, à partir de textes produits sous une contrainte absolue : celle des procès d’Inquisition espagnols, mais aussi des procès pour sorcellerie ou libertinage, dans l’écriture polémique des guerres de religion en France, ou dans la parole de condamnés de droit commun en Italie et en Angleterre.
Produites par dix spécialistes de littérature des XVIe et XVIIe siècle, ces études réunies par Anne Duprat interrogent la violence qu’exerce l’interprétation sur certains textes, et les modes de résistance qu’ils déploient face à elle. Elles permettent de comprendre comment cette violence, qui fait dire à un texte ce qu’elle veut, peut aussi construire les conditions de possibilité de son sens.

Comme la destinataire des Mémoires du cardinal de Retz, l’époque classique « aime les portraits ». Ils abondent dans les jeux mondains, les récits historiques, les Mémoires, les lettres. Ils occupent également une place importante dans les fictions narratives de la période, et notamment dans les romans. L’ouvrage collectif Les Portraits dans les récits factuels et fictionnels de l’époque classique, édité par Marc Hersant et Catherine Ramond, propose une confrontation systématique de ces deux pratiques d’écriture, une analyse de leurs similitudes et de leurs différences. Sous un angle peu étudié jusqu’à présent, il couvre un large champ de l’écriture du portrait, à partir de nombreux exemples allant de Brantôme à Stendhal.

Like the recipient of the Cardinal de Retz’ Memoirs, the early modern period “loves portraits”. They can be found in social games, historical narratives, Memoirs, and letters. They also occupy an important place in narrative fiction of that period, especially in novels. The collective volume Les Portraits dans les récits factuels et fictionnels de l’époque classique, edited by Marc Hersant and Catherine Ramond, proposes a systematic confrontation of these two writing practices, and analyzes their similarities and differences. From a hitherto little studied angle, the book covers a wide range of examples of portrait writing, from Brantôme to Stendhal.

Jeux de mots célèbre le pouvoir créateur des jeux de langage dans la littérature de Rabelais à nos jours. Calembour, mot-valise, bon mot, néologisme, mot-fétiche : ce volume collectif s’attache au jeu de mots littéraire dans des domaines aussi variés que l’onomastique littéraire et l’écriture à contraintes, aussi bien dans la prose que dans la poésie. Les études de spécialistes ici réunies montrent comment, de Rabelais à Richard Millet en passant par Roussel et Roubaud et de Mallarmé à Fargue en passant par Apollinaire et le ‘nonsense verse’, la prose et la poésie explorent la productivité des mots, leur pouvoir de métamorphose et leur aptitude à faire infiniment glisser le sens. Le volume se termine par une ouverture sur le jeu de mots en philosophie et au cinéma.

Jeux de mots celebrates the creative power of wordplay from Rabelais to present times. Puns, portmanteaus, ‘bon mots’, neologisms, fetish-words: this collective volume focuses on literary wordplay in very different fields such as literary onomastics and constrained writing, both in prose and in poetry. Specialists in the field show how, from Rabelais to Richard Millet through Roussel and Roubaud and from Mallarmé to Fargue through Apollinaire and ‘nonsense verse’, prose and poetry explore the productivity of words, their power of metamorphosis and their capacity to make meaning shift. The volume ends with a section on wordplay in philosophy and the cinema.

Silence, Implicite et Non-Dit chez Rousseau/Silence, the Implicit, and the Unspoken in Rousseau prend acte d’un grand nombre de publications ayant trait à l’analyse par Rousseau des langues et du langage, de la parole par rapport à l’écriture, de la voix (y compris la voix de la nature). Mais ce volume se consacre tout particulièrement au fonctionnement et aux effets du silence, de l’implicite et du non-dit dans la pensée de Rousseau. Son approche est à la fois polyvalente et cohérente, et ses réflexions sur le silence sont associées à d’autres préoccupations esthétiques, politiques, et morales de son œuvre.

Silence, Implicite et Non-Dit chez Rousseau/Silence, the Implicit, and the Unspoken in Rousseau capitalizes on a great number of publications dealing with Rousseau’s analysis of languages and language, speech versus writing, of voice (including the voice of nature). But this volume is particularly dedicated to the study of the functioning and the effects of silence, the implicit and the unspoken in Rousseau’s thought. His approach is both polyvalent and consistent, and his reflections on silence are associated with other aesthetic, political, and moral concerns in his work.

This volume describes the world of Parisian students as exemplified by the Collège de Dormans-Beauvais between 1370 and 1458. The prosopography of this institution is based on an examination of hitherto unused archives: the account books of the college.
The first chapter describes how this medieval foundation was transformed by the middle of the 15th century into a teaching institution which foreshadowed the modern college structure.
The three following chapters present a sociological analysis of this community, concentrating on the background, training and careers of the fellows.
The volume also contains a first critical edition of the statutes of the foundation, and biographies of the 357 fellows and 6 patrons of the college during this period.

This book is a study of the University of Caen, France, from its foundation in 1432 to 1609. It offers an innovative approach to the study of universities by incorporating to the traditional synthesis the latest developments in sociological and historical interpretation. Divided into five chapters, this study’s aim is two-fold: firstly, to demonstrate that the University of Caen had an integral role in the development of a strong and distinct identity for Normandy as a region with the kingdom of France. Secondly, to analyze the identities and representations not only of the University as an institution but also those of its members.
