De l’empathie et du soin dans la fiction médiévale française. Étude poéthique de quelques récits de femmes maltraitées aux xiie et xiiie siècles.

This article results from a reflection which proposes to study, through a medieval corpus, the stories of persecuted women, which is a vast European set of texts composed between the twelfth and the fifteenth century, from the perspective of Care Studies by associating the philosophical and religious resources proper to medieval civilization. The aim of this work is to make up for an unjustified absence of medieval texts from the Care Studies perspective, with the intention of showing that these texts, most often composed in a Christian context where charity is a natural feeling as well as a duty, are the first in our language to make empathy both an ethical pillar of common existence for the Christian individual, but also, and above all, a poetic foundation of literary writing. Ultimately, we would like to show that medieval texts can be related to a gesture of care in that they represent and elicit forms of empathy.
