Chapter Summary

By reconstituting the circulation of manuscripts and by attempting to identify the players and owners of the translations, the author discovered different sectors of society in which the French versions of Treaty of Gilles de Rome are circulated: high aristocracy and European nobility, but also urban bourgeoisie and clerks. The appropriation of De regimine principum by various strata of society responds to the aspiration of mendicant friar of the Order of Hermits of St. Augustine, who hopes, in generating interest in the education of the future ruler, and, through her of society in general, raises the moral level of political and civil community. The reader who has followed the author until now has certainly seen the diversity and complexity of issues addressed in the study; He has to make a choice and all were not able to be handled. The original text of the chapter is in French.

Keywords: De regimine principum; Gilles de Rome's treaty; manuscripts; political and civil community; St. Augustine; urban bourgeoisie
