Men at the Center: Redemptive Governance Under Louis IX

William Chester Jordan, "Men at the Center: Redemptive Governance Under Louis IX"
English | ISBN: 6155225125 | 2012 | 140 pages | PDF | 1 MB

Three portraits of men who were at the very center of governance in thirteenth-century France men who strove in the shadow of King Louis IX (Saint Louis) to impose a redemptive regime on the realm. Professor Jordan treats them as individuals, but in a sense they are also types: Robert of Sorbon, a churchman; Etienne Boileau, a bourgeois; and Simon de Nesle, an aristocrat. Robert was the founder of the Sorbonne; Boileau was the prévôt or royal administrator of Paris; and Simon was twice co-regent of the kingdom. Thinking about them and their relations with Louis IX opens up a new and altogether sobering vista for exploring the nature of the king s rule and the impact of his rule on his subjects.
