Implantations, activités et relations des établissements d'assistance en Bourgogne à la fin du Moyen Age

Abstract : The study presented here is the conclusion of an inventory about hospitals having existed on the territory of some dioceses (Autun, Auxerre, Chalon-sur-Saône, Nevers and the south of that of Langres diocese) between XIIth and XVth centuries. Based on the data collected, an atlas of assistance and a directory of sources on medieval hospitals of the study area has been made. The compiled informations proved to be very different but also very heterogeneous. Nevertheless, reflexions were conducted about the characteristics of these hospitals and their relationships with their economic, religious, political and social environments. It revolves around three parts dealing by turns the influence of external factors on the creation and implementation of medieval hospitals, interactions between hospitals with the environments where they are and how are they can be manipulated , and it ends with the parallel evolution of institutions with the support of society and power relations. It shows, among other things, that charity hospitals are landmarks in the medieval landscape, they are importants to the balance of society, but they also have a fonction in the power games and in the expression of the medieval Christian faith.
