L'historien et son roi

Essai sur les chroniques castillanes, XIVe-XVe siècles

0.00 CHF tax incl.

The writing of History was both an advance in status and a personal satisfaction for writers of the 14th and 15th centuries, who saw a book dedicated to the king as a chance to give him lessons on government. This proved true in Castile as well as in the other kingdoms of Western Europe, in decades of profound political turmoil. Historiographers there possessed a solid humanist education, were skilled in writing, and were engaged in political life. Their histories of Castile, chronicles of kings, treatises, and portraits of illustrious men of the past were messages for their readers, who were in charge of the government or who wished to participate in it. Pero López de Ayala, Fernán Pérez de Guzmán, Diego de Valera, Pedro Carrillo de Huete, Alfonso de Palencia, and Hernando del Pulgar all weighed in -- at the request of the court or own their own initiative -- on the functioning of the monarchy during their times. They frequently reproached the government and were happy to give themselves the role of critics. This function of historiography can be followed in this volume. The history of Castile becomes a political message, with arguments, chosen examples, and examples intended for use by future generations.
