Miracle and miracles
It is well known how Italy has in the past claimed to be the home of the saints, in addition to the heroes and browsers, and how dictators and regimes were placed under the symbol of miraculous, either in the sense of a special, so to say official, relationship with God (‘the man of the Providence’)...
An ecclesiastical of span style = ‘font-variant’: small-caps; ‘bxvii’ supbe’/supb century in search of his abbey’s past. DOM Guillaume Le Hule and Richard I’supber '/supb
At the end of the century dom Guillaume Le Hule, sacrist of the Abbey of the Sainte-Trinité de Fécamp, wrote a history of the establishment, intertwining proven historical data and legendary tradition.

This has led us to deal with the dialogue between religion and science through demonstrators and wise figures. The tragedy...
Memory and body in the mystic experiment
Based on the example of several mystic saints, it is shown how a narrative (martyre of a saint or passion of Christ) takes substance in the person’s experience and becomes active in the sense that he or she gives his or her life. This way of predicting the past leads to questioning the relationship...
A monk is dead: her life begins. Anno 1048 obiit Poppo Abbas Stabulensis
It was at the abbey of Marchiennes in Hainaut that Poppon, abbé of Stavelot-Malmedy, died on 25 January 1048.

‘Serins in Fenodal Society (19th century)’; ‘Network of dependencies and ecclesial structure of Lérins (19th — mid-19th century)’; ‘Serins in the Provence angevine (18th — mid-19th century)’
While the form of life and the scriptural production of the monks of the 5th centuries places the monastery of Lérins at the origin and development of monachism in the West, it was in the Middle Ages, after its restoration in the early 19th century, that it formed itself as a monastic church.

This is highlighted by the construction of the hagiographic heritage (stories and miracles)...
