[3-4 mai 2018] : Simon de Montfort († 1218) : le croisé, son lignage et son temps

Colloque international : « Simon de Montfort († 1218) : le croisé, son lignage et son temps »

Date : Jeudi 3 et vendredi 4 mai 2018

Lieux :

  • jeudi 3 mai = CESCM, Hôtel Berthelot – 24 rue de la Chaîne, Poitiers
  • vendredi 4 mai = Archives départementales de la Vienne, 30 rue des Champs-balais, Poitiers

The career of Simon of Montfort encompassed the entirety of Western Europe—as well as the Levantine crusade—at the turn of the thirteenth century.  Born and raised in the orbit of the French royal court at Paris, he inherited and was dispossessed of an English earldom and the royal stewardship.  Moreover, he twice took the cross: first to the Holy Land on the ill-fated Fourth Crusade, where he publicly dissented from the diversion to Constantinople, and later against the heretics in the Midi, where he established a semi-independent crusader principality.  All this came to an end with his death before the walls of Toulouse eight hundred years ago, yet his life did not fail to leave a mark on his contemporaries nor on posterity.  Most of Christendom hailed him as a pious hero, an ideal miles Christi, both during his lifetime and after his supposed martyrdom, struggling against heretical depravity.  However, in the Midi and Spain his reputation was frequently that of a brigand, a barbarian, a greedy and unscrupulous foreign interloper.  The latter judgement, with some exceptions, has largely been his legacy since the nineteenth century.  But the Simon of Montfort that this conference will seek to discuss is a man of contradictions: the principled crusader to the East who mutilated a defeated garrison in the Languedoc, the victor over the king of Aragon who voluntarily submitted his conquests to the king of France, the man who despoiled legitimate lords in the south while providing legal protections for widows and clergy.  This conference will centre on studying Simon both as a product of his time and an agent who helped to form it, an actor in his lifetime and a cipher for posterity, the successor to a dynasty and the origin of inheritances across Europe, a conqueror and a failure.

La carrière de Simon de Montfort couvre l’ensemble de l’Europe occidentale, ainsi que la les Balkans et la Terre sainte, au début du XIIIe siècle. Né et élevé dans l’orbite de la cour royale française de Paris, il a hérité d’un earldom anglais et de l’intendance royale, dont il a été dépossédé. De plus, il a pris la croix à deux reprises : d’abord en Terre Sainte, au cours de la malheureuse IVe Croisade, où il s’oppose  publiquement à son détournement vers Constantinople, et ensuite contre les hérétiques du Midi, où il fonde une principauté croisée semi-indépendante. Son aventure prend fin il y a huit cents ans, le 25 juin 1218, tandis qu’il assiège Toulouse et qu’un projectile lancé par une perrière met fin à ses jours. Sa vie n’a pas cessé de marquer ses contemporains et sa postérité. Bien de ses compagnons d’armes ont vu en lui le plus pieux et courageux des héros, le modèle du chevalier du Christ (miles Christi). Cette image prestigieuse a cours de son vivant et après son prétendu martyre au service du combat contre la dépravation hérétique. Cependant, dans le Sud de la France et dans la péninsule Ibérique, sa réputation devient aussi celle d’un brigand, d’un barbare, d’un intrus étranger, cupide et sans scrupules. Le XIXe siècle hérite de cette double image. Notre colloque cherchera à comprendre et à expliquer l’homme dans toutes ses contradictions : le croisé incorruptible en Terre sainte, mutilant toute une garnison en Languedoc, le vainqueur du roi d’Aragon, soumettant toutes ses conquêtes au roi de France, le spoliateur des seigneurs légitimes du Midi, protégeant leurs veuves et le clergé local. Simon est à la fois le produit de son temps et l’agent de son devenir. Il est également le membre d’un puissant lignage dont il contribue au succès et dont l’héritage se perpétue dans toute l’Europe.

During the thirteenth century networks between southern France and the Latin East existed through the movement of objects and people. The waging of religious warfare both in France and abroad enabled the circulation of objects and the interaction of culture, languages, and social practices via the maritime and land routes of pilgrims and holy warriors. Two conferences at Stanford and University of Poitiers on “Crusade, Networks, and Exchanges” will examine how the mobility of objects and people influenced artworks, architecture, and mentalities of crusading.  Some questions we look forward to investigating include: How were objects perceived in new contexts and how did they influence cultural production?

How do cultural exchanges influence engineering and  architectural  practices? With presentations by leading experts and rising scholars of different disciplines, the confe- rences aim to offer an opportunity to broaden our understanding of mercantile, artistic, and ideological exchanges and cultural translations in European and non-European cultures. The principle aim of these conferences is to esta- blish intellectual exchange between Stanford Center for Medieval and Early Modern Studies (CMEMS) and the Centre d’études supérieures de civilisation médiévale (CESCM) at University of Poitiers. The research presented will lay the foundation for future collaboration between Francophone    and    American   medievalists.

[30 juin-1er juillet] Urban monasticism/ monachisme urbain : 300-1300

URBAN MONASTICISM/MONACHISME URBAIN : 300-1300

Date: 30th June-1st July 2017

Places:

CESCM – Hôtel Berthelot – 24 rue de la Chaine – Poitiers

Société des Antiquaires de l’Ouest – Hôtel de l’Échevinage et des Grandes Écoles – 7, rue Paul Guillon – Poitiers

Organizers:

in cooperation with

CESCM, Poitiers (France), CEU Budapest (Hungary), Turku University (Finland), Monash University (Australia), FOVOG Dresden (Germany)


Christianity emerged as an urban phenomenon, yet monasticism is more often than not presented as an escape from the sinful town into the wilderness, and as more concerned with the soul than with the body. Ascetics, however, have always had a vested interest in the city, and not only symbolically. Monasticism has been an important urban presence since Late Antiquity up to the Late Middle Ages, even if they were sometimes in competition with newer religious orders. This interdisciplinary conference aims to explore the influence of monasticism in the city from Late Antiquity to the Late Middle Ages as well as in shaping attitudes to the body. What was the social status of the “monastic family” in the towns (including the vassals who held the monastic lands on loan)? How did monasteries integrate into the social fabric of cities? What role did they play in care for the sick? What was the relation between consecrated persons and laity? What economic role did monasteries play in towns? How did monastic art, schools and scriptoria contribute to the life of the city? To what extent did monasteries, abbots and abbesses get involved in urban politics? How did urban monasteries shape urban identity?

We plan to publish the proceedings in one volume but in two languages.

A major goal of the workshop is to develop an international research network relating to new perspectives on monasticism and religious life within an urban context, attending to themes like that of the body, devotion and religious life in the city.
