    The Prince and the Church in Renaissance Europe

    Princely Acts as Sources for Ecclesiastical History

    Religious history of the Renaissance has, without a doubt, been one of the fields of predilection of historians in recent decades. Various sources have been used to develop the field (registers/proceedings of ecclesiastical institutions, of tribunals and of urban institutions; notarial registers; correspondences of princes and of their representatives, those of cities, of bourgeois and of theologians, diaries and memoirs of contemporaries; theological treaties; etc.).

    The writings of power

    Advanced international training seminar. Political cultures in the Iberian peninsula and Maghreb (13th-15th century), 2018 session

    Les universités de Bordeaux, Pau et Toulouse, avec la collaboration de la Casa de Velázquez, organisent un séminaire de formation avancé qui propose un examen croisé et pluridisciplinaire des cultures politiques dans la péninsule Ibérique et au Maghreb au Moyen Âge. La session 2018 de l’atelier propose d’étudier la culture et l’expérience politiques au prisme de l’écrit, des écritures du pouvoir. Les renouvellements historiographiques récents permettront d’interroger l’acte d’écrire en le replaçant dans un contexte spécifique, de soupeser le gouvernement et l’administration par l’écrit, le poids de l’écrit dans la culture politique. Les écritures du pouvoir seront envisagées dans toute leur diversité.

    The implantation of new religious phenomena in the Iberian peninsula (3rd-11th century AD)

    Acceptances, refusals and compromises

    La péninsule Ibérique possède cette particularité d’avoir été le terrain de rencontres entre différentes cultures et à ce titre le théâtre de contacts entre divers systèmes religieux, particulièrement durant l’Antiquité et le Moyen Âge. De même que la réalité du mythe de la convivencia entre les trois religions monothéistes après 711 a été largement remise en question par une étude précise des sources, l’implantation successive de nouvelles religions, phénomène complexe et diversifié, semble mériter un réexamen.

    Religious encounters - between coexistence and cohabitation

    Dans la continuité du colloque international, « Pouvoir, expressions et représentations », organisé au sein du Calhiste en 2015, le colloque international Rencontres religieuses : entre coexistence et cohabitation invite les chercheurs américains et espagnols, et des sphères culturelles qui leur sont proches, à se pencher sur les notions de laïcité, de religion, et sur les rapports que celles-ci peuvent entretenir avec les institutions politiques ou spirituelles. Nous aborderons également les notions de cohabitation et de coexistence, aussi bien d’un point de vue diachronique que synchronique, en prêtant une attention particulière aux arguments et aux contextes qui rendent possibles ces rencontres ou qui, au contraire, provoquent des confrontations entre les différents points de vue.

    Exclusion and social discipline in the Medieval city in Europe

    14th international meetings of the Middle Ages in Nájera

    In the late Middle Ages, exclusion became a basic instrument for urban governance, as it enabled lay and ecclesiastical leaders to maintain their control over urban dwellers on the basis of maintaining a certain social discipline and an “ordered” society. Thus, medieval urban society was defined as a community of values according to the ecclesiastical and secular legislation, and it was articulated as a political discourse, which was incorporated into the public sphere. The urban community had to adapt to a legal and ideological framework and to some parameters of behavior, in which exclusion from the community was a powerful communication tool of social discipline. Historians and Graduate students are encouraged to submit abstracts for research presentations or posters on topics related to “exclusion and social discipline in the Medieval European City”.

    The construction of theoretical discourse in the Middle Ages

    Theorica 5. Thinking translation in the Middle Ages

    Le programme de recherche « Theorica », initié en 2012, se propose de revisiter l’idée reçue selon laquelle le Moyen Âge serait un temps asystématique et par conséquent inapte à toute théorisation. Pour ce cinquième volet, le domaine retenu a été celui des discours sur la traduction, pour interroger la manière dont le Moyen Âge a ressenti le besoin de théoriser la traduction. Il ne s’agit pas ici d’appliquer les méthodes d’analyse de la traductologie contemporaine aux textes médiévaux mais bien d’interroger le regard porté sur la traduction par les théoriciens et/ou praticiens du Moyen Âge afin de dégager les différentes conceptions de la traduction qui s’opposaient à la fin du Moyen Âge.

    The New Medieval Lisbon 1147-1217

    The Ways of the West and the East

    Between the 23rd and 25th of October 2017, the Institute for Medieval Studies (IEM) will organize the V colloquium “The New Medieval Lisbon”. The commemorative evocation of the conquests of Lisbon in 1147 and of Alcácer do Sal in 1217 is the pretext for a broader debate not only around these events, their meaning and impact, but also on its wider context, and on the diversity of the ways that, at the time, were being shaped and reshaped, both in the peninsular context and in the wider scenarios which linked the West to the East.

    Letters from women in medieval Europe (11th-15th century)

    Miroir de l’âme mais aussi instrument de communication et d’action politique, la lettre est un objet d’étude qui suscite, depuis quelques années, une attention particulière. La correspondance des femmes est cependant un domaine encore peu exploré et, en dépit de travaux ponctuels sur la production épistolaire de quelques reines, princesses ou nobles dames, rares sont les études d’ensemble sur ce sujet. Pourtant, les lettres de femmes contiennent de précieuses informations sur leur vie, leurs aspirations, et leur rôle au sein de la société. Consacrées aux documents de la pratique mais aussi aux lettres fictives que l’on trouve dans l’historiographie et la littérature, les communications présentées lors de ce colloque examineront les spécificités de ces divers écrits.

    The role of small towns in building Medieval Europe

    It is our aim to promote an approach to urban studies which, repeatedly but discontinuously, appears on the horizon of historical, geographical, sociological and anthropological research, always with a certain stigma as an inferior and unattractive subject of analysis. Inferior, because each time it has been considered on a comparative scale, it comes up against the variability of definitions of its designating attribute. It is unattractive inasmuch as it is not satisfied by scientific approaches rooted in the intention to capture decisive and major development processes. By combining several scientific areas, this conference aims to give a voice to the small towns of a Medieval Europe, increasingly perceived as "moving".

    New ports, pioneer ports (XIVth-XXIth centuries)

    The Conference will address four topics: the creation of a port, the major enlargement of an existing port, the rapid transformation of a small port into a big harbour, or the temporary establishment of a port for economic or military reasons. The analysis includes commercial harbours and naval bases, as well as mixed ports. The concept of an “Atlantic port” refers to its location on the Atlantic Ocean or its extensions in the Channel, the North Sea and the Caribbean Sea. This includes the ports of the European, the African and American Atlantic littoral, as well as the metropolitan European and the African and American ports both as colonial ports and after their independence.
