By Jacques Le Goff

Ni thèse, ni synthèse, cet essai peut être lu comme l’aboutissement d’une longue recherche. Et d’une réflexion sur l’histoire, sur les périodes de l’histoire occidentale, au centre de laquelle le Moyen Âge est mon compagnon depuis 1950. Il s’agit donc d’un ouvrage que je porte en moi depuis longtemps, des idées qui me tiennent à cœur.

Écrit en 2013, à l’heure où les effets quotidiens de los angeles mondialisation sont de plus en plus tangibles, ce livre-parcours pose des questions sur les diverses manières de concevoir les périodisations dans l’histoire : les continuités, les ruptures, les manières de repenser l. a. mémoire de l’histoire.

Traitant du problème général du passage d’une période à l’autre, j’examine un cas particulier : los angeles prétendue nouveauté de l. a. « Renaissance » et son rapport au Moyen Âge auquel j’ai consacré avec ardour ma vie de chercheur.

Reste le problème de savoir si l’histoire est une et proceed ou sectionnée en compartiments ? ou encore : s’il faut vraiment découper l’histoire en tranches ? Jacques Le Goff
