Description

In the 7th century the political and economic situation of Visigothic Spain seemed to grow ever worse, yet it was at this time that there was established a Christian culture that lasted up to the 11th century. This culture forms the subject of the present volume and was the product, the author holds, of the survival of classical learning, on the one hand, and, on the other, the needs of a sustained programme of evangelisation led by both bishops and monks. Of the articles here, one set focuses on monastic life and the influence on this of Isidore of Seville; a second group examines the liturgical texts of the period, one of the key means of propagating the Christian faith amongst an often illiterate population. The questions of language and literacy, finally, form the subject of two specific studies on the availability of books in post-Visigothic Spain, and on a set of early medieval Latin texts scratched on slate. La situation politique de la (TM)Espagne visigothe au 7e siAcle semblait aller de mal en pire. Ca (TM)est cependant A cette A(c)poque que sa (TM)A(c)tablissait une culture chrA(c)tienne qui allait durer jusqua (TM)au 11e siAcle. Cette culture forme le sujet du prA(c)sent volume et, selon la (TM)auteur, A(c)tait le resultat du maintient du savoir antique da (TM)une part, et da (TM)autre, du besoin A(c)prouvA(c) da (TM)un programme da (TM)A(c)vangA(c)lisation soutenu et menA(c) par les evA*ques, ainsi que par les moines. Parmi les articles, une sA(c)rie se concentre sur la vie monastique et la (TM)influence da (TM)Isidore de SA(c)ville sur celle-ci; un deuxiAme groupe procAde A la (TM)examen des textes liturgiques de la pA(c)riode, qui reprA(c)sentaient des moyens de propagation de la foi chrA(c)tienne au sein da (TM)une population souvent illettrA(c)e. Pour finir, la question de la langue et de la (TM)alphabA(c)tisation est abordA(c)e au travers de deux A(c)tudes spA(c)cifiques: la (TM)une sur la disponibilitA(c) des livres dans la (TM)Espagne post-visigothique et la (TM)autre sur une sA(c)rie de textes latins du Haut Moyen Age grattA(c)s sur de la (TM)ardoise.
