Chapter Summary

Writing in 2000 Alexandre Y. Haran described Dynastic Messianism and the Imperial Dream in France throughout the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. He placed the mythology of the last Valois, that one has been considering, reflected in Guy's long and impassioned eschatological outpouring, in a longer discourse arising in the Middle Ages and enduring for another century or so. Continuities are, however, to be found more widely. Outliving even French dynastic messianism, Christian kabbalah retained a vitality that it has perhaps even now not entirely lost. Guy's chosen disciple, Blaise de Vignère continued his master's activities as a translator and kabbalist. The fundamental change in Syriac studies was introduced by the arrival of native scholars in Rome in the second part of the sixteenth century.

Keywords: Alexandre Y. Haran; Christian kabbalah; French dynastic messianism
