Notes Préface d'Alain Boureau
Abstract The history of tears not only has dimensions that are psychological and cultural, but also theological and institutional. In this original essay, Piroska Nagy approaches the history of the tradition of tears from a historical and anthropological point of view. In the Middle Ages tears were valued in two forms: tears of devotion and tears that were a sign of grace (the "gift" of tears). The author draws from multiple sources: the lives of the saints, meditations, standard texts used by ascetics, monastic rules and exploratory treaties.
