Saint Louis rendant la justice sous son chêne, féodal devenu symbole d'inégalité criarde, médiéval utilisé à toutes les sauces dès qu'il s'agit de caractériser un retard ou un blocage : le Moyen Age est encombré d'a priori, de légendes forgées afin d'accentuer un misérabilisme imaginaire, voire de mensonges.

J. Heers s'attaque aux idées reçues sur le Moyen âge avec ardeur... J'ai beaucoup aimé la partie introductive (le constat, souvent très drôle, des clichés véhiculés sur le Moyen Âge) et tout autant le dernier chapitre, très percutant, destiné à réfuter les idées fausses et caricaturales sur "L'obscurantisme de l'Eglise médiévale". "Nous ne somme moderne que par ignorance désinvolte du passé" disait R. Barthes.

Adieu les stéréotypes sur le Moyen-Age! Une lecture très intéressante. J'aurais sans doute donné 5 étoiles si le style avait été un peu moins académique mais ce livre reste passionnant.
