Yet without going so far as to awaken the great spectres of the past Kenyon, Grenfell, Hunt, Schubart, Vitelli, and more recently Turner, all of whom were at ease with both literary and documentary papyri , we must recognize what intellectual impoverishment such a conception has led us to today. Furthermore, they did not hesitate to put literature and documents side by side on the same support, reusing a document to copy a literary text on the parts that remained blank, or vice versa, and thus demonstrating a deeper permeability between these two types of text than our modern conceptions allow us to imagine.
The dialogue between literary and documentary papyrology, which is something that I have wished to revive for years, is above all highly fertile in a methodological sense when we take the time to allow the two domains to interact. In two ways. This sociology of literature and literary practices is not new, although it is rarely practiced, mainly because of the difficulties encountered in the contextualization of literary papyri which, resulting often from illegal excavations, are not readily linked to archives or to their owners-readers.
We are too inclined to limit the realm of culture to literature alone, yet the culture of an era is not reflected only in lists of works that it values or statistics generated from the corpus of surviving literary papyri. Documents also have something to say, and they do so in multiple ways.
The first of these ways obviously consists in making use of the content and information that they provide about the world of culture: schools, literate practice the copying and circulation of books , manifestations of culture lectures, recitals, competitions and, more generally, the literacy of populations. Onomastics, often exploited for the study of religious change, also offers data on cultural trends, which continue to be underestimated. It is not insignificant that, in the early fourth century, a magistrate of the city of Hermoupolis was named Achilles and his wife Hermione, 18 two distinctively Homeric names that indicate the identitarian reactions of the traditional municipal elite faced with the rise of Christianity, whose Hellenism aligned itself more and more visibly with the fundamental pillars of secular Greek culture.
Later, Christians too adopted Homeric names, such as Odysseus, which made its appearance in the fifth century, and in the seventh century Menelaus, showing the peaceful development of an essentially cultural paganism deemed to be complementary to Christian culture. Making use of the contents of documents to create a cultural history is an approach that may seem self-evident, yet it was not until that this type of approach was applied to the most widely read Greek author, Homer, and that I published the first systematic document-based study on Homeric culture in Greco-Roman Egypt.
Obsessed with the contents of documents, papyrologists all too often overlook what they can learn from their form.

In this sense, papyrology suffers from the overabundance of its documentation. In the urgency to edit, the message of the text is given priority, while information that may appear to be incidental, less interesting, or in any case less immediately useful due to its concrete or material and formal nature, is disregarded. Yet so much information can be extracted from the formal analysis of a letter, complaint, contract, or edict, which show, better than any amount of text, the cultural conditioning of a society, along with the cultural or even intellectual profile of the individuals who wrote them.
More and more clearly, from the late third century, letters, contracts and complaints pertaining to this everyday or practical type of writing, as opposed to that of literary texts, attest, through their palaeography, vocabulary, and rhetoric, to the influence of not only Christian literature, as one might expect, but also, more surprisingly, of secular literature. Thus we see the multiplication of citations from authors often poets , the development of a vocabulary marked at once by a return to Atticism and, through the influence of poetry, the systematic use of introductory sections based on rhetorical models that attempts to establish themselves as short pieces of literature justifying the more down-to-earth text which follows.
Let us consider one example among many: the conclusion of a complaint that an individual victim, along with his fellow villagers, addresses to the governor of the Thebaid province in against a local official and his henchmen Fig. As God is our witness, in the winter we fed ourselves with chicory, and in the summer the leftovers I mean what is left over from sifting and grain dropped from the wheat tax, distributing them among our households, given that, once the wheat tax is paid, we have absolutely nothing left.
Above all, we have been divested of the rights that are ours in times of peace, long oppressed by the attacks of innumerable bandits, day and night, bandits who associate with vagabond shepherds who are in league with them. They pillage and damage all of our goods to the detriment of the public treasury and to our greater ruin. And we have suffered an even more severe lack of food due to their wrongdoing, and have no longer any desire to live or to withstand such bold acts committed illegally and which have gone unpunished, to withstand their wolfish and predatory dispositions, always acting like carnivorous beasts.
For such creatures, both cruel and fearless, spread human blood just as a careless person throws water across the ground in waste. The divine Homer, master of the epic, is strikingly used to denounce pillaging by low-ranking officials. Is there any better example of the prestige of ancient literary culture in this world in the throes of cultural change? The effect of this prestige was felt even in the script itself as well as in the page layout.
The script was increasingly influenced by bookhand writing and had recourse more and more often to the diacritical marks used in literary manuscripts accents, punctuation, etc. The page layout made use of spaces, contrasting writing styles, and a presentation marked by the bookhand productions. Both bear witness to the fact that greater attention was paid to the graphic element and its consubstantial relations with the text. At least in certain milieus, and to the extent that we are able to observe this in dossiers containing both books and documents, literature is seen as having a practical function.
Far from having the sole purpose of fostering and maintaining the pleasure of reading seen as a gratuitous act, the works of certain authors became practical manuals for eloquence or the writing of documents. We have seen that Thucydides was considered a master of rhetoric; likewise, Homer, Menander, and Isocrates were read as models of good writing, which could be directly imitated in everyday texts. Collections of letters, of which I cited a few examples above, became fashionable.
These texts, originally ephemeral documents, took on a second life by acquiring the status of literary texts, disseminated as literary manuscripts to a readership for whom they could once again serve as potentially reusable models. Contemporary literary works were also marked by this interest in documents: people began to write letters or even complaints in verse, or to include real or fictitious documents in less circumstantial, literary works.
They produced patriographic rhapsodies or hagiographic collections, for example by transmuting documentary material into literature. Now more than ever they need to support one another to survive and to continue to help us, by sharpening our critical faculties and insight, to piece together the shreds of past memories and thus, as far as possible, to avoid falling victim to our illusions, or worse, to those of others.

Author Jean-Luc Fournet. Is He young or old, or is He ever-living? Is He beautiful, or have many fostered His son, or is His daughter handsome, and dear to men of the world? Patrick, full of the Holy Spirit, responded: 'Our God is the God of all, the God of heaven and earth, the God of the seas and the rivers, the God of the sun and the moon, and of all the other planets;  the God of the high hills and the low valleys; God over heaven, in heaven, and under heaven ; and He has a mansion— i.
He inspireth all things, He quickeneth all things, He enkindleth all things; He giveth light to the sun and to the moon. He created fountains in the dry land, and placed dry islands in the sea, and stars to minister to the greater lights. He hath a Son co-eternal and co-equal with Himself; and the Son is not younger than the Father, nor is the Father older than the Son. And the Holy Ghost are not divided. I desire moreover to unite you to the Son of the heavenly King, for ye are daughters of an earthly king.
Teach us duly that we may see the Lord face to face —teach us, and we will do as you will say to us. Patrick said, 'Do you believe that through baptism the sin of your mother and your father shall be put away from you? And  Patrick said to them,' You cannot see Christ except that you first taste death, and unless you receive the body of Christ, and His blood. This beautiful passage delineates the faith and zeal of our Saint, as well as the grace and unction attached to his preaching, while on the other hand, it unfolds the beautiful simplicity of the youthful princesses, and the wondrous effect of God's efficacious grace upon their hearts and souls.
Patrick Whilst our Saint preached and baptized at Cashel, the prince Aengus stood by his side; and the sharp point of the crozier […] pierced his foot from which the blood flowed most copiously; the fervent convert bore the pain in silence; and when St. His saying is so good that with those Gratzachams his cauldron shall be brought back to him. Note: See 21 9 a. Patrick God sometimes gives to his great Servants while on earth, a foretaste of the joys of heaven. Hence, we are not surprised that extraordinary, heavenly signs and prodigies are recorded to have taken place at the death of our Saint.
On the 17th of March, in the year , at the age of , amid the sweet songs of the Angels, and a supernatural light from heaven, St. Patrick, the Apostle of Ireland, breathed forth his pure soul into the hands of his Creator. Note: FW Patrick [St Patrick at Lerins] the night he usually divided into three parts. During the first part he recited a hundred Psalms, making at the same time two hundred genuflections.

This is the fragment in which we see Harold and William, both of them passing the sanctuary of the Archangel, before warring against Conan, duke of Brittany. The Mont appears, on the canvas of queen Mathilda, massive and already colossal with Romanesque arcades. It is no longer the culmen contemplationis of the ancient chronicles, we can imagine the fortress. We feel that, caught between hammer and anvil, between Brittany and a Normandy where a duchy will grow into a kingdom, it will undergo countless attacks, receive but also give hard blows.
Ce registre a disparu. One of the great monastic builders of the Mont , he shares with Robert the glory of being also its great librarian. He bought numerous volumes and in order to classify the hundred of property titles of the monastery in orderly and methodical fashion, he created himself a register that was called Quanandrier or Rented Paper, with another book that was called the White book because of the colour of its cover and in which he had transcribed all the originals of the donations to the abbey.

The latter register has disappeared. He is the architect of the Cartulary. The Cartulary is situated in the North-West conrner of the Merveille: it consists of the three small rooms on top of each other: the first alone is vaulted; the cloister, in its western part, leads unto the second floor of this rather small room. At the moment the cartulary that tourists do not have access to, forms a museum at the top floor where some objects are assembled that were discovered during the repair works.
Note: Muniment room is one of the senses of the French word chartrier cartulary. It can also designate the contents of this room, i. The first I opened turned out to be ancient manuscripts on vellum, of a careful writing and more or less well conserved; some of them had gold and illuminated initials; in a few others this gold had aroused the greed of the idle or of children: it had been cut out by means of a pair of scissors.
The ordinary writing had tempted nobody and it had suffered no other wounds than those of time. We passed several hours in repairing them and to make an inventory and we found the precious Cartulary which we had feared lost. Note: Cog. To falsify or feign; to flatter; to wheedle.

New gods of another origin, social gods, we could say, have taken the most important role. The reason may be that, no more than those of ancient Latium , the gods of Gaul had a clearly defined personality. They were conceived as vague spirits, abstract powers of physical phenomena, more or less conventional geniuses of social groups.
They had neither face nor body. The brenn who pillaged Delphi laughed a lot, it seems, at the idea that men of marble or bronze could represent the gods of the Greeks. Neither did he understand that one could imagine being able to lock up divinity in the cella of a temple. In its very vagueness, the conception that the Gauls had of their gods was vaster vaster and more grandiose than the imagination of the Greeks. Le feu consume le tout. It is there that they decided the common business of the land. After these meetings, general or local, the judge became priest again.
For the health of the city or the nation he made solemn sacrifices. Immense wicker mannequins were filled with live men, preferably criminals, but when they did not have any, innocent people. The fire killed them all. It was in the oak woods that they had their sanctuaries and they did not do their sacred rites without oak leaves. They believed that the appearance of the mistletoe reveals the presence of the god of the tree on which it grows.
When they found it on an oak, they cut it with great ceremonies. They chose the sixth day of the moon because they believed that on that day the star possesses all its vigour and it has not completed half of its journey. Under the sacred tree they prepare a banquet and a sacrifice; they bring two white steers whose horns have not yet carried a yoke. A priest in a white robe climbs the tree: with a golden sickle he cuts it and the mistletoe is caught in a white sheet. The druids then kill the victims while asking the god that the mistletoe may bring happiness to all to whom he has given it.
Also they confided the education of their children to the druids, even of those not destined to become priests. In each city and maybe also in centers away from the cities, the druids led real scholastic establishments. They are the masters who shape the youth of Gaul. The education they give consists of the learning by heart by the pupils of a great number of verses. Aengus divides the Irish Saints into three classes. The first class, extending from the year to , begins with St. Patrick, and numbers Saints, all bishops and founders of Churches.
Patrick; one Mass; one mode of celebration; one tonsure from ear to ear. The second class, extending from the year to , counts Saints. The third class, extending from the year to , numbers Saints, comprising bishops, priests, and laymen. Patrick [St Aengus] wrote five books on the Saints of Ireland [ In the whole island, sometimes there were only a few bishops, and they concealed in their hiding-places ; the priests, who succeeded to land in Ireland from the Continent, travelled through the country in disguise, preparing the dying, encouraging the living, and not unfrequently sealing their faith in their blood; our Cathedrals were converted into Protestant conventicles, and no church or chapel left through the land.

Many of them were sick or crippled; that is why, in a quite large circle around Mont-Saint-Michel , hospitals, leproseries and poor houses had been erected. These hospitals, usually administered by clerics, could not shelter all who asked for help.
The deplorable hygienic conditions in which the pilgrims live, contaminated the land. Leprosy especially ravaged the land and the leper houses where the unfortunates were treated, for better or worse, were always full. Note: It. Note: See j. Les bords de celle ouverture sont un peu amincis, lisses au dehors comme au-dedans. Footnote  The head of saint Aubert is preserved still at the basilica of Saint-Gervais in Avranches. Tradition has it that the archangel saint Michael, while appearing to saint Aubert, put his finger in the skull of the the bishop who did listen to his commands.
This curious relic shows us that the bone of the skull and of the face are still attached. The rims of the opening are a bit thinner, smooth outside as inside. Nothing in the periphery of the opening, neither in the length of the bone, shows the action of an instrument, the application of something biting or corrosive. Everything is mooth as if this opening had been made without violence and a long time befor the death of the subject. We can neither assume that this opening was the result of the application of a trephine of which it does not show the form.

It has been claimed but we have not been able to find definite proof of the fact that before salmon was so common in the country that domestics in the farms on the Normandy coast forced on their masters when they applied for a position the condition not to have them eat salmon more than three times a week. Huynes, destroyed the church: all the bells were molten; the roods of the sleeping quarters and the other dwellings were burned and the coals, which fell on the town, did not leave a single house intact.
It seemed impossible to rebuild such a magnificent monastery, burnt five times already, and that it was a clear sign that God did not like such splendid buildings. It carries the arms of the abbey and that of the Benedictines of the Congregation of Saint-Maur. Fleming St Patrick viii: The fifth Life, written by Probus, an Irish monk who died in Meyence in the year , is considered to be an amended version of St. Fleming St Patrick Probus states that St. Patrick, after he fled from Ireland , landed at Bordeaux Brotgalum.

One was called The Trinity; she had been brought from Orwell England by Gautier Dubois; its weight wqs 80, it took 29 sailors in defense and in crew.
Wichelsea had armed Le George and maybe The Trinity too, with 20 men captain included. Granville had armed a vessel that belonged to Damours le Bouffi; it had a tonnage of 15, with 17 sailors and soldiers on board.

Four years before the Stapleton was jailed, there entered in the prison of the mount, the gazetteer Victor de la Castagne, better known under the name of Dubourg, originally from Espalion.

He was held on the Mont for several years. He was a writer, less famous for his work than for his bad luck. It is true that it was baptized Free Mount and later Villefranche. From to it can be said that The superior administration was plagued by complaints of all kinds.

But Tiphaine died in Dinan in , i. In any case, to us the date seems very questionable.

Il accourut. Feeling that she was close to the end, although her fortieth spring had not yet blossomed, she called Geoffroy de Servon to her side. He came. Six hours was enough to go from the Mont to Dinan. He consoled her with pious words and these evoked, one can be sure, quite a few memories of Mont Saint-Michel; then the abbot gave lady Duguesclin the last sacraments and the rather mystical soul of the fairy lady escaped from her gentle body and flew away into eternity through the ethereal spaces in which the worlds rotate.
Two days later, Geoffroy officiated pontifically at the church of Saint-Saviour in Dinan and his voice trembled, surely from emotion, when he gave the last blessing; in the end the convoy went, slowly, towards the convent of the Jacobins and the coffin disappeared soon in the dark caves of the chapel. When he had discarded his priestly vestments, the good abbot certainly lavished consolations on the unfortunate constable. These were undoubtedly eloquent and persuasive: a few months later Duguesclin married Jeanne de Laval. Note: See 20 c. Duguesclin married his second wife, Jeanne de Laval, in Ils en furent pour leurs frais.
The monks wanted from the bishop the privilege of being able to hear confession of everybody who came to them; they started negotiations with the bishop of Avranches for that purpose and it was during these that they offered him this beautiful fish.
