Alcuin contre Théodulphe : un conflit producteur de normes

Abstract : The conflict that opposed in 801-802 Alcuin to Théodulfe, by the way of a clerk refugee in the basilica of Saint-Martin, highlights the legal and cultural practices of this time. Thanks to the crossing of two types of sources – four letters of Alcuin and the capitular of 803 – the different aspects of this conflict allow to formulate some remarks on the making of the Right, as well as on the Carolingian Rebirth notion, that doesn't seem to be generalized to all domains of the writing. Relations between social pratice and legal norms will be considered in the opposite direction that the one usually analyzed, taking in consideration how a norm can be produced from the social practice, that means how the expression of immunity and right of asylum in the capitular of 803 comes from this conflict.
