Aspects de la religion civique à Arles au bas Moyen Âge. Cantars et entrées dans la chronique de Bertrand Boysset

Abstract : In his 1365-1415 chronicle, Arles-born Bertrand Boysset describes several ceremonies his city organised which belonged to expressions of “civic religion”: cantars and solemn entries. A cantar was a requiem mass officiated over an empty coffin, away from the site where the body was buried. Boysset witnessed the cantars of Queen Joan (1385), Louis II’s brother (1404), and Queen Marie of Blois (1405). The solemn entry was a two-step honorific rite: the occursus, by which the city leaders greeted the visitor, and the adventus, in which they accompanied the visitor in the procession leading to the main church of the city. Boysset mentions several entries and provides a detailed account of two of them: King Martin of Aragon’s in 1397 and Queen Yolande’s in 1400, on the eve of her wedding with Louis II. He captures the city’s contribution to the organisation of the cantars and the entry of 1400.
