Los angeles longue période de l’histoire médiévale qui s’étend du IVe au XIIe siècle est dominée par une certaine imaginative and prescient du monde : celle d’une humanité pécheresse en marche vers Dieu, dont le séjour terrestre n’est qu’une étape douloureuse dans l’attente de son Salut. Or, très tôt, les clercs ont développé l’idée que le pouvoir terrestre avait un rôle à jouer au regard de cette destinée spirituelle de l’humanité et qu’une étroite collaboration s’imposait entre puissance royale et puissance sacerdotale. Mais sur quelles bases établir cette collaboration et quelle position y assigner au prince ? Ce dernier serait-il perçu comme le médiateur entre Dieu et les hommes, nécessairement placé dans une place de « suréminence » et donc d’irresponsabilité devant ses sujets ? Ou bien le gouvernant ne serait-il qu’un homme parmi d’autres, soumis comme eux à l. a. médiation des prêtres ? remark, enfin, définir le bon roi et quelles devraient être les formes de son motion ? Ces questions ont fait l’objet, dès l. a. fin de l’Antiquité, de grands débats que l’on go well with ici, au sein du monde franc et en France, jusqu’au seuil du XIIIe siècle. À travers les cas très concrets des souverains romano-barbares, puis des Carolingiens, au pouvoir hégémonique de plus en plus critiqué, cet ouvrage permet de comprendre remark s’est constituée, autour de l. a. royauté, l’idéologie qui l’a portée, inspirée et contestée. Yves Sassier, Docteur en droit, agrégé des facultés de droit (droit romain et histoire du droit), est professeur d’histoire des associations médiévales à l’université de Paris-Sorbonne (Paris IV). Il est notamment l’auteur de Hugues Capet (Fayard, 1987), Louis VII (Fayard 1991) et co-auteur avec O. Guillot et A. Rigaudière de Pouvoirs et associations dans los angeles France médiévale (Armand Colin, 2 vol. 1994).
