Les fêtes civico-religieuses à Grenade, XVIe-XVIIe siècles

Abstract : This work approaches through the study of the urban celebrations the big stakes which shaped the difficult incorporation of Granada in Castile in 1492, till the end of XVII th century. By following the birth and the evolution of these celebrations and by confronting them with the contemporary historic context, social splits and the fundamental role of festivity in the making and the negotiation of power could be identified. We also notice leveling terms and recurring arguments there, ceaselessly rearranged according to the context, which establish together a system which we called the myth of Granada. This narrative that thwarts the attempts of composition and rationalization is constituted by a hard core the essential terms of which are the conquest on one hand, martyrdom and autochthony of the other. It is clearly observable at every level of the celebrations: stage setting, processional hierarchies, spiritual patronages, spectacles, liturgical, literary and iconographic forms, etc.
