Médiévalisme et théorie, pourquoi maintenant ?

Abstract : Médiévalisme, a rare word in French, was chosen to spur reflection on the object and methods of medievalism, namely the reception of the Middle Ages in later centuries (especially from the 19th up to the 21st century) in areas of creativity and erudition. Medievalism concerns both artistic or fictional creations, and learned books devoted to the Middle Ages. The bibliography of medievalism contains a great many entries, but methodological, general or theoretical studies constitute a rare (and relatively recent) occurrence in this vast, plethoric output. This volume follows a symposium that was held at Malbrouck Castle and in Metz (where, in November 2009, the articles presented here -in an extensively revised form- were first submitted) to further the elaboration of a theoretical and methodological framework for research on médiévalisme / medievalism. The multidisciplinary perspective was necessary in a book which considers the reference to the Middle Ages in literature, cinema, music, history, politics, architecture and comic books--adopting, in each case, a global viewpoint, rather than a monographic approach dealing with a particular author or example, as is too often the case in collections of articles on medievalism.
