Title (French, Long) Violences polysémiques et construction mémorielle: la Passion de sainte Salsa de Tipasa

Genre Original
Abstract Salsa of Tipasa holds an original place among the female figures of martyrdom. The narrative of her Passion, structured by stereotypes, is centered on three violent events (the destruction of the idol by the young girl, then comparison to Judith; the lynching of the martyr; the effective intercession of the holy Salsa who defeats the tyrannical violence of Firmus). The aim of this narrative description is to legitimize her martyrdom and her holiness, thus enabling her to be part of a process of construction of memory.
