Le triomphe de la norme dans les discours à la mort de Philippe II

Abstract : When Philippe II died in 1598, many writers took part to the collective eulogy that was to be made of the deceased sovereign. Various means were thus mobilised to show how the power was thought of. The setting of a unique representation, abiding to the temporal demands of its own creation, intensively renewed the political doxa that had been imposed on during the whole reign. Funeral orations are a good example of a creation that is both standardised in its form and normative in its content. The king’s attitude towards death made him the very paragon of the good Christian death and, beyond historical exemplarity, aimed at reinforcing the tridentine norme in the political and religious context of the turn of the century.
