L'Historia gothica de Rodrigue Jimenez de Rada (1243) : écriture et discours

Abstract : This work is a study about the writing carried out in the Historia Gothica which was finished in 1243 by Rodrigo Jimenez de Rada, the Toledano's archbishop. In this text, Rodrigo relates the history of Hispania, from the Flood biblical times until his time. Even if the Historia Gothica is a deeply political text that combines various views -- the definition of the relations between kingship and nobility, the conception of the Hispanic territory, as well as the defence of the Toledano's Church primacy -- no one can forget that this text is first of all a textual construction. Through a literary approach, our intention is thus to emphasize and analyse the narrative, stylistic and discursive mechanisms that underlie the text. The first part of the study is dedicated to the text sources, to Rodrigo¤s way of quoting them and rewriting them with thoughtfulness. The second part shows the methods used to build the text, considering its paratext, its narrative architecture and its essential elements.
