Download E-books El espejo de las almas simples (El Árbol del Paraíso) PDF

El 1 de junio de 1310, en París, las llamas de una hoguera de l. a. Inquisición consumieron el cuerpo vivo de una mujer de l. a. que poco se sabe: Margarita Porete, una beguina de los angeles región de Hainaut que había escrito un libro, El espejo de las almas simples, y que fue l. a. causa de su condena. A pesar de ello, y tras su muerte, este libro tuvo tan enorme difusión que, en los últimos siglos de los angeles Edad Media, traspasó fronteras geográficas y lingüísticas como pocos textos de su época, traduciéndose del francés (o del possible unique picardo) al latín, al inglés y al italiano. Escrito con forma de un diálogo entre personificaciones alegóricas, y en el marco de las formas de expresión de los angeles literatura cortés, El espejo de las almas simples es una obra de teología que enraíza en las corrientes de los angeles llamada «mística femenina» del siglo XIII y cuyos contenidos se vinculan estrechamente al pensamiento del maestro Eckhart, quien casi con seguridad lo conoció y leyó. El libro, caído tras el siglo XVI en el olvido, fue redescubierto, y con él su autora, en pleno siglo XX. Desde entonces se reconoce en esta obra uno de los grandes hitos de los angeles literatura mística occidental.

Download E-books Le christianisme antique : De Jésus à Constantin (2e édition) (Collection U) PDF

By Paul Mattéi

Remark une secte périphérique s’est-elle muée en faith universelle, socle de civilisations ?

Tout start par une rupture, lente, et non voulue : le « mouvement de Jésus », né d’un judaïsme polymorphe, et lui-même divers, mit un siècle, et davantage, à s’émanciper. Jetée dans le monde hellénistico-romain, l. a. foi nouvelle connaît l. a. persécution et s’affronte à l. a. tradition ambiante ; elle se bâtit, sur un double plan : doctrinal (la « Grande Église » crée son orthodoxie, contre les « hérésies ») et structurel (les situations de régulation se fixent). Le IIIe siècle marque un tournant, tragique parfois : communautés plus nombreuses, plus étoffées et plus bigarrées, associations consolidées, survenue de théologiens majeurs, champ élargi des normes disciplinaires, balbutiements d’un artwork. Quand Constantin se convertit, le christianisme, minoritaire, n’est plus un phénomène marginal : le bon plaisir de l’empereur ne l’a pas tiré du néant…

Telle est los angeles courbe, aléatoire, qu’entend décrire ce livre, textes à l’appui. Il le fait sans oublier qu’ici, plus qu’ailleurs peut-être, los angeles description ne peut se déployer que sur un fond épais d’incertitudes et dans un flot pressé de remises en question.

Paul MATTEI, ancien élève de l’École Normale Supérieure de Saint-Cloud, est professeur de langue et littérature latines à l’Université Lumière (Lyon 2) et conseiller scientifique de l. a. assortment « resources Chrétiennes ».
