Chapter Summary

Seven French versions of the De regimine principum of Giles of Rome are managed. From thirteenth to the fifteenth century, the French versions of the Treaty of Giles of Rome met truly "international" success, occupying a prominent place in major royal and princely collections of the Christian West. Unlike the diffusion of Latin De regimine principum, which took place mainly, but not only, in a public of clerks, the French versions aroused great interest among secular audience. Associated with sermons, prayers or liturgical texts, the Latin text could also be presented as a useful book to preachers. The French versions of the Treaty of Gilles of Rome certainly were primarily in the collections but we saw that there was also a better place inside private collections of less importance. The original text of the chapter is in French.
