Introduction [du colloque Noblesse et défense de l'orthodoxie (XIIIe-XVIIe siècle)

Abstract : This preliminary presentation of the book - Le Salut par les armes. Noblesse et défense de l'orthodoxie, XIIIe-XVIIe siècle - insists on the novelty of this inquiry on a subject relatively unexplored. The papers gathered in this work deal with the secular nobility, her writings and views, strategies and actions in confrontation with an orthodoxy which is laid down externally by clerical institutions. They try to understand how noble identity and culture is deeply involved in the commitments that nobles endure to defend the Faith. The various answers to this question determine the structure of this book divided in four sections : Defending the Faith for or against the Papacy (XIIIth-XIVth centuries) ; the contradictions of the Defence of the Faith between The Church and The State (XIVth-XVIth centuries) ; Nobility, churches and the Western Development of the " Confessionalization " Scheme (XVth-XVIIth centuries) ; The noble Identity and the expansion of the Faith (XVth-XVIIth centuries).
