Les traités anti-hussites du dominicain Nicolas Jacquier (✝ 1472)

Une histoire du concile de Bâle et de sa postérité

In 1467, the inhabitants of Wrocław in Silesia were surprised to meet a Burgundian Dominican named Nicholas Jacquier, who had been appointed by Duke Philip the Good to preach against Czech Hussitism. This unlikely ambassador was in fact well qualified for his task: at the Council of Basel, he had debated with the Hussite theologian John Rokycana and had just written down this thirty-year-old speech. The present book aims to follow Jacquier’s odyssey across Central Europe by putting it back in the context of the launching of a new crusade against Bohemia. The manuscripts that he left behind him on his journey shed new light on the ways and means by which scholarly controversy arose and spread over post-Basel Christendom. The doctrinal issue focused on the communion under both kinds and had many consequences connected with Biblical hermeneutics, sacramental theology and everyday piety of the faithful. Nicholas Jacquier’s anti-hussite tracts, which have long been overshadowed by his demonologic works, are here studied and critically edited for the very first time.
