Ghosts in the Middle Ages : the living and the dead in Medieval society by Jean-Claude Schmitt( Book )

27 editions published between 1994 and 2007 in French and English and held by 934 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schmitt argues that beliefs and the imaginary depend above all on the structures and functioning of society and culture, and he shows how the Christian culture of the Middle Ages enlarged the notion of ghosts and created many opportunities for the dead to appear. Schmitt also points out that the church happily proliferated ghost stories as a way to promote the liturgy of the dead, to develop pious sentiments among parishioners, and to solicit alms on behalf of a relative or friend's salvation

La raison des gestes dans l'Occident médiéval by Jean-Claude Schmitt( Book )

38 editions published between 1990 and 2008 in 8 languages and held by 565 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book explores the history of gestures in the West, from late antiquity to the heart of the Middle Ages. Unlike the ethnologist or sociologist, the historian has no direct access to the gestures of the past, but must deal with texts or images only, the representations of gestures, which rely on the interpretation of gestures made by the culture that created the representations. Thus the historian's investigation is driven by these questions: What does it mean to "make a gesture" in medieval Christian society? How was the body, its movement, and its attitudes understood in that era? Did a theory of gesture exist?

L'ogre historien : autour de Jacques Le Goff( Book )

10 editions published in 1998 in French and held by 193 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Le bon historien ressemble à l'ogre de légende, disait Marc Bloch. Là où il flaire la chair humaine, il sait que là est son gibier." Jacques Le Goff n'a guère eu à forcer son talent pour se glisser à son tour dans la peau de l'ogre. La métaphore illustre l'énergie physique et intellectuelle, la force de travail de l'historien

Les images dans l'Occident médiéval by Jérôme Baschet( Book )

8 editions published in 2015 in French and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Les images ont, depuis quelques décennies, acquis droit de cité parmi les documents qui apportent leur contribution à la compréhension des sociétés de l'Occident médiéval. Cependant, la tâche n'a rien d'aisée, car l'analyse des oeuvres visuelles confronte à des difficultés particulières et les historiens, surtout familiers des textes et des matériaux archéologiques, ne sont pas forcément bien armés pour les étudier, dans le respect de leurs modes d'expression et de fonctionnement propres. Destiné à la fois aux historiens et aux historiens de l'art, ce volume se veut, selon l'esprit de la collection, une introduction et une aide concrète, susceptible d'accompagner pas à pas les étudiants, les jeunes chercheurs et tous les passionnés d'art médiéval, qui souhaitent comprendre les images du Moyen Âge (miniatures, sculptures, mobilier, vitrail, retables, peintures murales, etc.) et appréhender leur rôle au sein de la société. Cet ouvrage est réalisé par une quarantaine d'auteurs, de nationalités diverses (France, Belgique, Italie, Brésil, Corée, États-Unis, Pays-Bas, Allemagne, Roumanie, Russie, Suisse), de Michel Pastoureau à Jean Wirth, de Claudial Rabel à Cristina Pereira, anciens étudiants ou collègues proches de Jean-Claude Schmitt, directeur d'études à l'École des Hautes Études en Sciences Sociales (Paris), qui a renouvelé l'approche des images médiévales et à qui est dédié cet ouvrage."--Page 4 of cover

La conversion d'Hermann le juif : autobiographie, histoire et fiction by Jean-Claude Schmitt( Book )

15 editions published between 2002 and 2007 in French and English and held by 159 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Vers le milieu du XIIe siècle, un Juif originaire de Cologne, converti au christianisme et devenu prêtre à Cappenberg, en Westphalie, écrit le récit de sa conversion. Cette <<autobiographie>> est l'une des toutes premières en Occident depuis les célèbres Confessions de saint Augustin. Ce texte singulier divise les historiens, les uns y voyant le <<récit vrai>> d'un authentique juif converti, les autres une pure <<fiction>> forgée par des clercs chrétiens. Pour Jean-Claude Schmitt, ce récit est à la fois <<vrai>> et <<fictif>>. Il soulève les questions de l'autobiographie et de la subjectivité, de la conversion individuelle et collective, du nom et de l'identité. Cette étude de cas est l'occasion pour l'auteur de s'interroger sur la méthode et l'écriture de l'histoire
