Don Quichotte controversiste : Les disputes de Théophile Cassegrain (fin XVIe-début XVIIe siècle)

Abstract : Theophile Cassegrain did not pass to posterity. To the great displeasure no doubt of the principal interested, who put his whole heart to compete with his most illustrious colleagues, Philippe Duplessis-Mornay or Daniel Chamier. Pastor of the big village of Pont-de-Veyle in Burgundy at the end of the sixteenth century, Cassegrain was an indefatigable fighter of the faith, constantly preaching and disputing, always hoping for a wide spread of his word: love of God ? Need to please and be known for self-esteem? Great is the temptation to psychologize this story without looking for more general causes. The search for glory, the construction of a reputation are always difficult to measure when we speak of men of God, that everything pushes to conceal these problems.
