Between Church and State



Between Church and State For the past several decades, French historians have emphasized the writing of history in terms of structures, cultures, and mentalities, an approach exemplified by proponents of the Annales school With this volume, Bernard Guen e, himself associated with the Annalistes, marks a decisive break with this dominant mode of French historiography Still recognizing the Annalistes indispensable contribution, Guen e turns to the genre of biography as a way to attend closely to chance, to individual events and personalities, and to a sense of time as people actually experienced it His erudite, lively, elegantly written study links in sequence the lives of four French bishops, illuminating medieval and early modern history through their writings Guen e chooses as his frame the momentous period from the height of Saint Louis s reign in the mid thirteenth century to the beginning of the Italian wars two hundred years later During this time of schism in the church, of war between nascent states, and of treachery among princes, Bernard Gui 1261 1331 , Gilles Le Muisit 1272 1353 , Pierre D Ailly 1351 1420 , and Thomas Basin 1412 1490 all rose from modest circumstances to the dignity of office Guen e shows us how these prelates used their talent, ambition, patrons, zeal, and experience to juggle the competing demands of obedience to church and state to overcome competition from an upcoming new generation and to cope with plague, war, and violence Free of jargon yet steeped in learning, Between Church and State reveals the career patterns and politics of an era while forging a new model for points of departure in historical scholarship.
