La patience ou le zèle

Les Français devant le hussitisme (années 1400 – années 1510)

The first Reform in Latin Europe, Hussitism did not only shake the neighboring countries of Bohemia. Joan of Arc herself was alarmed at the end of her short life. The French, if not France as such, therefore also had to face this new challenge. They did so mainly within the framework of the general councils of Constance and Basel, whose policy of repression they inspired or supported, then of negotiation with the heirs of Jean Hus. Diplomacy was not everything, however. Like Jean Gerson, many French theologians also engaged in doctrinal controversy, either on their own initiative or because they were consulted by the highest authorities in the Church. Finally, a certain knowledge of Hussitism was transmitted on French soil, at least in curial, university and ecclesiastical circles; it sometimes fueled hopes, most often fear and mistrust. Spanning a long 15th century and crossing political, intellectual and cultural approaches, this book therefore intends to analyze the means by which contemporaries learned to integrate the scandal of denominational rupture.
