L'histoire est au cœur de l'identité bretonne. Dès la fin du XVe siècle, les grands chroniqueurs du duché, Pierre Le Baud et Alain Bouchart, ont conscience de la communauté de destin qui unit les Bretons depuis l'histoire plus ou moins légendaire des saints de l'émigration bretonne jusqu'à la création d'un État ducal par-delà les vicissitudes de la guerre de Succession. Si les méthodes des historiens ont changé, la volonté de connaître le passé est toujours aussi vivante en Bretagne et ce livre veut faire découvrir les grandes étapes de l'historiographie depuis quinze siècles. On trouvera donc ici quelques moments forts : le grand bouillonnement culturel qu'a représenté la diffusion de la Matière de Bretagne, le temps des grandes chroniques ducales, les débuts de l'érudition moderne avec les moines mauristes, Dom Lobineau et Dom Morice, les premiers bilans archéologiques avec le chanoine Mahé, la personnalité volontiers hégémonique de La Borderie, les recherches parfois un peu brouillonnes de Dom Plaine, l'érudition historique d'un grand ingénieur, René de Kerviler, et puis aussi le rôle des prêtres érudits, les recherches trop vite interrompues de René Largillière, la figure d'un grand historien du droit, E. Durtelle de Saint-Sauveur. Ce voyage au cœur de l'écriture de l'histoire montre aussi les progrès constants de la recherche qui a de plus en plus besoin de toutes les sciences humaines pour progresser.

Georges Vigarello maps the evolution of Western ideas about fat and fat people from the Middle Ages to the present, paying particular attention to the role of science, fashion, fitness crazes, and public health campaigns in shaping these views. While hefty bodies were once a sign of power, today those who struggle to lose weight are considered poor in character and weak in mind. Vigarello traces the eventual equation of fatness with infirmity and the way we have come to define ourselves and others in terms of body type. Vigarello begins with the medieval artists and intellectuals who treated heavy bodies as symbols of force and prosperity. He then follows the shift during the Renaissance and early modern period to courtly, medical, and religious codes that increasingly favored moderation and discouraged excess. Scientific advances in the eighteenth century also brought greater knowledge of food and the body's processes, recasting fatness as the "relaxed" antithesis of health. The body-as-mechanism metaphor intensified in the early nineteenth century, with the chemistry revolution and heightened attention to food-as-fuel, which turned the body into a kind of furnace or engine. During this period, social attitudes toward fat became conflicted, with the bourgeois male belly operating as a sign of prestige but also as a symbol of greed and exploitation, while the overweight female was admired only if she was working class. Vigarello concludes with the fitness and body-conscious movements of the twentieth century and the proliferation of personal confessions about obesity, which tied fat more closely to notions of personality, politics, taste, and class.

"Every man who undertakes the journey to the Our Lord's Sepulcher needs three sacks: a sack of patience, a sack of silver, and a sack of faith."—Symon Semeonis, an Irish medieval pilgrim As medieval pilgrims made their way to the places where Jesus Christ lived and suffered, they experienced, among other things: holy sites, the majesty of the Egyptian pyramids (often referred to as the "Pharaoh's granaries"), dips in the Dead Sea, unfamiliar desert landscapes, the perils of traveling along the Nile, the customs of their Muslim hosts, Barbary pirates, lice, inconsiderate traveling companions, and a variety of difficulties, both great and small. In this richly detailed study, Nicole Chareyron draws on more than one hundred firsthand accounts to consider the journeys and worldviews of medieval pilgrims. Her work brings the reader into vivid, intimate contact with the pilgrims' thoughts and emotions as they made the frequently difficult pilgrimage to the Holy Land and back home again. Unlike the knights, princes, and soldiers of the Crusades, who traveled to the Holy Land for the purpose of reclaiming it for Christendom, these subsequent pilgrims of various nationalities, professions, and social classes were motivated by both religious piety and personal curiosity. The travelers not only wrote journals and memoirs for themselves but also to convey to others the majesty and strangeness of distant lands. In their accounts, the pilgrims relate their sense of astonishment, pity, admiration, and disappointment with humor and a touching sincerity and honesty. These writings also reveal the complex interactions between Christians, Jews, and Muslims in the Holy Land. Throughout their journey, pilgrims confronted occasionally hostile Muslim administrators (who controlled access to many holy sites), Bedouin tribes, Jews, and Turks. Chareyron considers the pilgrims' conflicted, frequently simplistic, views of their Muslim hosts and their social and religious practices.

Has any question about the historical past ever been finally answered? Of course there is much disagreement among professional historians about what happened in the past and how to explain it. But this incisive study goes one step further and brings into question the very ability of historians to gather and communicate genuine knowledge about the past. Understanding Historyapplies this general question from the philosophy of history to economic history of American slaveholders. Do we understand the American slaveholders? Has the last word on the subject been said? Both the alleged “profitability” of slavery and the purported causes of the American Civil War are philosophically analyzed. Traditional narrative history and econometric history are examined and compared, and their different philosophical assumptions made explicit. The problem of justifying historical methodologies is first set in the wider context of the philosophical problem of knowledge, then lucidly explained and resolved along pragmatic lines. The novelty of Gorman’s approach lies in its comparison of narrative with econometric history, its analysis of empathetic understanding in terms of cost-benefit analysis, and its elucidation of the metaphysical presuppositions of empiricism. It stands out especially for the clarity, rigor, and simplicity of its arguments.

Les chercheurs en sciences humaines et sociales s'interrogent depuis une vingtaine d'années sur leurs disciplines et leurs pratiques. L'histoire médiévale n'échappe pas à ce phénomène, même si, contrairement à l'Allemagne, l'historiographie française a davantage produit des bilans qu'une réelle réflexion sur les institutions, les acteurs de la recherche et les pratiques. Ce questionnement épistémologique, qui est au cœur du XXXVIIIe Congrès de la Société des historiens médiévistes de l'enseignement supérieur public, dépasse toutefois les seuls professionnels de l'Histoire, puisqu'il s'agit de réfléchir à ce que représente le Moyen Âge aujourd'hui : la demande sociale envers les médiévistes est plus forte que jamais et se nourrit à la fois du succès de mondes imaginaires, qui s'inspirent ouvertement de lui, et de la recherche d'une identité locale dans un passé millénaire. L'émergence de nouvelles modalités d'élaboration du savoir, en particulier par le décloisonnement des disciplines - les relations entre archéologie et histoire des textes, entre histoire médiévale et littérature, géographie et sciences sociales - tout comme l'examen des formes de sa diffusion - comment enseigner l'histoire médiévale ? - sont autant de défis pour les médiévistes du XXIe siècle. Par ailleurs, les bouleversements provoqués par la révolution numérique touchent directement le travail des historiens. Plusieurs contributions offrent un regard neuf sur les mutations déjà à l'œuvre dans les pratiques en raison de l'informatisation, de la numérisation et de l'utilisation d'Internet : quelles sont les nouvelles relations entre les médiévistes et l'image à l'époque de l'écran global ? Quels sont les enjeux du tournant numérique dans l'édition et l'étude des textes manuscrits ? Les organisateurs ont voulu mener ces réflexions non dans le seul cadre national, mais en associant à leurs travaux les représentants d'autres sociétés de médiévistes venus d'Europe, mais aussi d'Amérique latine, avec lesquels plusieurs établissements d'enseignement supérieur et de recherches ont tissé des liens forts depuis de nombreuses années. En effet, le Moyen Age n'est nullement la " propriété " de la vieille Europe, bien qu'il soit pour elle une référence identitaire évidente.

The fame of Joan of Arc began in her lifetime and, though it has dipped a little now and then, she has never vanished from view. Her image acts as a seismograph for the shifts and settlings of personal and political ideals: Joan of Arc is the heroine every movement has wanted as their figurehead. In France, anti-semitic, xenophobic, extreme right parties have claimed her since the Action Francaise in the 19th century. By contrast, Socialists, feminists, and liberal Catholics rallied to her as the champion of the dispossessed and the wrongly accused. Joan of Arc has also played a crucial role in changing visions of female heroism. She has proved an inexhaustible source of inspiration for writers, playwrights, film-makers, performers, and composers. In a single, brief life, several of the essential mythopoiec characteristics that throughout history have defined the charismatic leader and saint are powerfully and intensely condensed. Even while Joan of Arc was still alive, but far more so after her death, the heroic part of her story sparked narratives of all kinds, in pictures, ballads, plays, and also satires. This was only heightened in 1841-9 by the publication of the Inquisition trial which had examined Joan for witchcraft and heresy. The transcript of the interrogations gives us the voice of this young woman across the centuries with almost unbearable immediacy; her spirit leaps from the page, uncompromising in its frankness, good sense, courage, and often breathtaking in its simple effectiveness. Joan of Arc into one of the most fully and vividly present personalities in history, about whom a great more is known, in her own words and at first hand, than is, for example, about Shakespeare. However, this has not stopped the flow of fictions and fantasies about her. Marina Warner analyses the symbolism of the Maid in her own time and in her rich afterlife in popular culture. The cultural expressions are part of an ongoing historical struggle to own the symbol - you could say, the brand. In a new preface to her study, Marina Warner takes stock of the continuing contention, in politics and culture, for this powerful symbol of virtue. Joan of Arc's multiple resurrections and transformations show how vigorous the need for figures like her remains, and how crucial it is to meet that need with thoughtfulness. She argues that abandoning the search to identify heroes and define them, out of a kind of high-minded distaste for propaganda, lets dangerous political factions manipulate them to their own ends. When Marine Le Pen calls on Joan of Arc's name, she needs to be confronted about her bad faith and her abuse of history.
