Description

The session considers expansion of images or/and power in a religious and intellectual perspective.

In the West, saints' cult plays a central role, not only in the way people live their beliefs, but also in the relations between ecclesiastical structures or orders. Examining the development of a saint Lambert's cult in Provence through his vita of the 12th Century becomes a mean to understand faith and power in their interactions in the South of the Kingdom of France.

The development and adaptations of the role-model of the Maccabees, and more precisely of Judas Maccabee in a Christian context sheds light on the interactions of two intellectual spheres we consider - probably excessively - distinct : the Christian and the Jewish. In fact, it can be argued that the interactions of the two and that their evolution is more akin that we think. We will examine in the third paper the case of the Extractiones de Talmud, a Christian work about a Jewish book.
