Dames du XIIe siecle, T.1 by Georges Duby

By Georges Duby

Je présente ici six figures de femmes que j'ai choisies parmi les moins indistinctes. C'est un graduation. Un autre livre traitera du memento des aïeules, tel qu'il se conservait dans les maisons de haute noblesse, précisant l'image que les chevaliers faisaient en ce temps des dames. J'examinerai enfin, dans un dernier tome, quels jugements portaient sur ces femmes les hommes d'Eglise qui dirigeaient leur sense of right and wrong et s'efforçaient de les tirer de leur perversité local. Ce que je m'emploie à montrer n'est pas le réel, le vécu, inaccessibles. Ces femmes ne seront jamais que des ombres indécises, sans contour, sans profondeur, sans accessory. Ce sont des reflets, ce que reflètent des témoignages écrits. Des témoignages datant de l'époque, tous officiels, lancés vers lepubIic,jamais repliés sur l'intime. Des textes écrits par des hommes, faits pour être dits à haute et intelligible voix, et pour enseigner. Pas plus que l. a. sculpture ou los angeles peinture, los angeles littérature du XIIe siècle n'est réaliste. Elle determine ce que l. a. société veut et doit être. Reconstituer un système de valeurs, voilà tout ce qu'il m'est attainable de faire. Et reconnaître dans ce système los angeles position assignée aux femmes par le pouvoir masculin.
