Chapter Summary

The history of reading and scholarship as socio-intellectual activities has been a well-blooming field of study. For France in the second half of the sixteenth century, when the country was disturbed by the Wars of Religion, scholarship, reading and writing were interpreted, often in general, as reactions to religious conflict and the social unrest. The authors found it instructive to deepen and realize the idea of reading, writing and book collecting as irenic occupations through examples provided by the authors of Satyre Ménippée and other associated therewith. They demonstrate allusions to public misfortune that they find so frequently in scholarly correspondence of the time (especially in quasi official addresses of dedicatory epistles). The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: reading; Satyre Ménippée; scholarship; socio-intellectual activities; Wars of Religion; writing
