Download E-books Sparte: Géographie, Mythes Et Histoire PDF

By Françoise Ruzé, Jacqueline Christien

Bénéficiant d'apports archéologiques nouveaux, cet ouvrage inédit met en lumière los angeles nature, le rôle et le poids de cette cité, longtemps occultée par Athènes.Or, sur huit siècles, Sparte s'imposa l. a. plupart du temps comme l. a. plus importante cité du monde grec, politiquement, militairement et même parfois culturellement. Les auteurs nous font découvrir en tout cas une Sparte citadel éloignée du mytaCet ouvrage se suggest de restituer les huit siècles de l’histoire de Sparte, qui vont de l. a. fondation de l. a. cité à sa soumission aux Romains. S’il est admis qu’elle fut probablement l. a. plus importante des cités grecques par l’étendue et los angeles richesse de son territoire et par sa puissance militaire, elle apparaît souvent bien mystérieuse. Cependant, l. a. très abondante historiographie des dernières décennies permet de dépasser l. a. imaginative and prescient mythique d’une cité gouvernée par une élite, exclusivement traditionaliste et militarisée, telle que Xénophon ou Plutarque l. a. décrivaient et telle que les délires totalitaires l’ont célébrée. Les auteurs ont souhaité l. a. faire revivre dans tout son dynamisme et restituer une évolution des associations et des modes de vie longtemps perçus comme figés. Des études rigoureuses et documentées, et libérées de toute idéologie, ont restitué à Sparte son vrai visage : si elle fut bien une cité extraordinaire politiquement, militairement ou idéologiquement, ses faiblesses et ses échecs méritent d’être étudiés et compris. L’analyse critique des mythes et des textes, l’exploitation des données archéologiques, l. a. prise en compte de los angeles géographie de l’ensemble du territoire, permettent de saisir concrètement le développement spectaculaire de cette cité jusqu’au début du IVe siècle av. J.-C. puis ses tentatives désespérées pour retrouver sa grandeur perdue et résister à tous ceux, Macédoniens ou Romains, qui cherchèrent à los angeles contrôler. Au overall los angeles cité lacédémonienne se voit ici consacrer une somme novatrice, fixant durablement los angeles point of view, comme il n'en était pas paru en langue française depuis plusieurs décennies. C'est tout un pan de notre regard sur l. a. Grèce ancienne que cet ouvrage contribuera à faire évoluer, en nourrissant un débat qui dans notre sense of right and wrong historique et politique, reste fondamental depuis deux millénaires. Jacqueline Christien a été maître de conférences à l'université de Paris X-Nanterre. Françoise Ruzé est professeur émérite d'histoire grecque à l'université de Caen.Ouvrage dirigé par Maurice Sartre.e qui, de l. a. Renaissance au fascisme, en a donné une photo faussée. De nombreuses citations, des orientations chronologiques, des records iconographqiues, une cartographie inédite, un glossaire, un index et une bibliographie fouillée font de cet ouvrage un outil de travail essentiel.
