Regards sur les glises de France
Un siècle après la loi de séparation des Eglises et de l'Etat, la question de la conservation du patrimoine religieux se pose toujours avec autant d'acuité. Elle concerne plus de 40 000 édifices en France, dont environ 13 000 sont classés au titre des Monuments historiques : églises paroissiales, cathédrales, monastères, chapelles rurales, synagogues, mosquées, temples, partagés entre lieux de culte et lieux de culture. Près de 300 000 objets d'art dans ces monuments sont également protégés au titre des Monuments historiques. Les œuvres d'art des lieux de culte, conçues pour allier beauté et utilité, forme et sens, ne sont pas des objets de musée. Elles font corps avec les monuments. Aujourd'hui leur conservation tend à devenir une difficulté réelle pour les collectivités propriétaires, et l'on parle de plus en plus souvent de destruction, sinon de désaffectation cultuelle permettant une utilisation laïque de ces édifices. Cet ouvrage est un essai de réflexions pour l'avenir et expose des expériences nouvelles, toutes marquées par la mise en place de partenariats, aussi diverses que les ateliers du patrimoine en Cantal, la formation de bénévoles chargés de l'entretien des sacristies dans l'Ain, la valorisation de la statuaire en terre cuite dans la Sarthe, le "plan-objet" de la DRAC Languedoc-Roussillon, etc. Pour ce patrimoine en danger, il devient urgent d'explorer les voies possibles de médiation entre institutions, conservateurs, restaurateurs, propriétaires, affectataires, associatifs et bénévoles, afin de partager et d'accroître la connaissance de ces œuvres in situ pour en assurer la conservation dans le monument qui leur donne sens
Funding Religious Heritage
This collection brings together a group of highly respected law and religion scholars to explore the funding of religious heritage in the context of state support for religions. The importance of this state support is that on the one hand it illustrates the potential tensions between secular and religious values, whilst on the other it constitutes a relevant tool for investigating the question of the legitimacy of such financial support. The funding logically varies according to the national system of state-religion relationships and this is reflected in the range of countries studied, including: Belgium, Bulgaria, Denmark, France, Italy, The Netherlands, Spain, Turkey, and the United Kingdom. The book provides clarity in the assignment of funds to religious heritage, as well as seeking to define the limit of what relates to the exercise of worship and what belongs to cultural policy. It is clear that the main challenge for the future lies not only in managing the dual purpose of religious monuments, but also in re-using these buildings which have lost their original purpose. This collection will appeal to those interested in cultural heritage management, as well as law and religion scholars. The views expressed during the execution of the RELIGARE project, in whatever form and or by whatever medium, are the sole responsibility of the authors.

Secularisation and the Leiden Circle
The Leiden Circle pioneered the systematic exclusion of theologically grounded argument in areas of thought from the natural sciences to international relations. Somos uses richly contextualised portraits of Scaliger, Heinsius, Cunaeus and Grotius to develop a new model of secularisation.
Remembering Kings Past
The rich legends spun between 1000 and 1250 and by the monks of southwestern France to explain the origins of their communities are the subject of this provocative study. Amy G. Remensnyder explores the monastic foundation legends in all their variety - including forged charters, hagiographic texts, chansons de geste, architecture, and sculpture - to show how such imaginative rememberings of the past worked to affirm the liberty and identity of the abbeys in the present. At the center of the legends stand three kings whom the monks favored as founders: Clovis, Pippin the Short, and, above all, Charlemagne. Remensnyder reveals the many implications of this legendary affection for kings, a startling predilection on the part of monks living in a region where actual rulers hardly ventured during the period. A major contribution to the cultural history of images of French kingship, the book demonstrates how communities far from effective royal power could create and manipulate royal images, using them to serve their own interests. For Remensnyder also situates these legendary images in the web of local social relations from which they emerged. She shows that when threats to their liberty and identity arose, the monasteries could shield themselves by invoking their legendary founders. The book illuminates the world of medieval southern France, and its relation to the French kings. It will interest all those who seek to understand the processes by which a community imaginatively remembers its past so that it becomes the basis for its identity in the present. It also demonstrates that texts often discounted as "fiction" can tell us as much as those classified as "fact".
Isabelle de Charriere Belle de Zuylen
This book is the result of patient research in eighteenth-century family archives. Particularly those of Belle de Zuylen's contemporaries likely to have met her. Just over twenty years after the publication of her Oeuvres completes and the subsequent biographies by Pierre and Simone Dubois and Cecil P. Courtney, this book offers much new material and places her early work in the context of that of her friends. Being in touch with other people was essential for Belle de Zuylen, whose correspondence now also includes two letters when she was seventeen and desperately in love. Among the new poems there is a fable written after a quarrel with friends, whose views on the matter are also published. Another important poem is Belle's long and witty 'epistle' in answer to complimentary verses by the editor of the journal that printed her story Le Noble. One of the many reactions by friends to this partly autobiographical tale in which Julie d'Arnonville elopes with a man her father does not approve of, came from an offended 'marquis d'Arnonville', who enclosed a lengthy comment on the story. Most of the material was found among the papers of Baron Gijsbert Jan van Hardenbroek, a colleague of Belle's father in the provincial administration. From his letters and memorandums it appears that for many years he was in love with Belle. When he finally asked her to marry him, she had already decided to leave Holland, where she had long known she would never be happy.

Crime Justice and Public Order in Old Regime France
This title, first published in 1984, is a case study of crime and criminal justice in rural, southwestern France in the last century of the Old Regime. Based on extensive research in criminal court records, often the only documentary evidence of the poor and illiterate, the study is a valuable addition both to our knowledge of Old Regime society and to our understanding of its judicial institutions. Rural, Old Regime France seethed with violence. Assault, homicide, and a violence of speech occurred frequently at all levels of society. The author’s finding that royal fiscal and judicial officials were recurring targets of this violence additionally contributes to our understanding of the revolutionary events ending the Old Regime. This system, providing in principle for judicial torture and corporal and capital punishments for relatively minor crimes, has long epitomized much that was wrong with pre-revolutionary France. But the law in principle is not the law in practice, and the author finds that both local and appeals courts seldom decreed such measures. This book will be of interest to students of history and criminology.
