Jacques Lefèvre d'Etaples and the Three Maries Debates

De
Publié par

Le grand éditeur et exégète humaniste, Jacques Lefèvre d’Etaples, publia de 1517 à 1519 quatre opuscules connus sous le titre des Trois Marie. Parus au moment même de l’émergence de la Réforme luthérienne, vite assimilés – à tort – à la lutte déjà entamée entre novateurs et conservateurs, mais déclenchant à leur tour une querelle célèbre où s’ébauchent les grandes lignes de la campagne antiluthérienne, ces écrits – les seuls qu’il ait publiés comme auteur – définissent la pensée de Lefèvre. En traitant, au nom de la piété et d’une lecture éclairée des textes sacrés, de la question de l’identité de la Madeleine et de la véracité d’une tradition qui fit des saintes femmes des Evangiles les demi-soeurs de la Vierge, Lefèvre s’attaquait à un culte cher à ses contemporains, que ceux-ci défendirent avec acharnement. En outre, sa discussion de la manière de calculer les ‘trois journées’ (le triduum) entre la Crucifixion et la Résurrection du Christ, peu connue, et qui ne provoqua guère de répliques, est peut-être la plus révélatrice de son exégèse, et de ses rapports avec Erasme. Sheila Porrer donne la première édition moderne des quatre opuscules, en établissant le texte latin assorti d’une traduction anglaise. Son introduction et ses notes critiques retracent les origines et le cours d’une querelle essentielle de l’histoire religieuse et culturelle.

{p.7}ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS My sincere thanks go to the patrons without whose financial support this edition could not have been published.
It is an especial pleasure to acknowledge a generous grant from theWarburg Institute's Erasmus fund, which links me with the site of my earlier studies in London.
I am no less delighted to express my gratitude for a similarly liberal award from theCarnegie Trust,which underlines my current connection with Scotland.

The assistance and support I have had from friends and colleagues in the preparation of this edition has been invaluable.
I first worked on the Three Maries controversy at the Warburg Institute in London many years ago under the late Dr. D. P. Walker, with help from the late Margaret Mann Philipps and from Professor Michael Screech, to ail of whom I remain much indebted.
Several colleagues in Edinburgh have offered their welcome support more recently, especially Dr. Peter Sharratt, Professor James Laidlaw and Professor Philip Bennett. Dr. Margaret Williams has generously shared her expertise in Greek. Encouragement and practical help have come from Dr. Anne Cobby in Cambridge and Professor Ann Moss in Durham, and I have benefitted from the resources and expertise of several libraries, especially the library of the Warburg Institute, the British Library, the National Library of Scotland and Edinburgh University Library. Thanks are also due to the University of Auckland in New Zealand for the generous hospitality received during my Honorary Research Fellowship there in 2004-5, when I undertook much of the preparation for this edition.
I have benefitted too from the guidance of M. Max Engammare at Droz, who has prevented several slips and made many constructive suggestions. The imperfections which remain are mine alone.
Finally I owe a great debt to my family, my children and especially my husband Robert, who has been an unfailing source of patient support and encouragement while so much of my time was devoted to Lefèvre.{p. 8}

{p.11}NOTE ON THE TEXTS
The texts transcribed here are, firstly, those of the second Estienne edition (1518), which contained the second edition of theDe Maria Magdalena(DMM II) and of theDeTriduo (DT II), and the first (and only) edition of theDe Vna ex Tribus(DUET). Reference is made to the first (1517) edition of the first two texts to indicate variants. Secondly, the only edition (Estienne, 1519), of theDisceptatio Secunda(see below, p. 13,Note on titles..., for more details).
The original marginal references are given in italic in the notes to the Latin texts, and in the case of Bible references these are followed by the verse numbers, which are not in the original text, in Roman type. The notes to the Latin text also include the variants between different editions. The notes to the English translations give ail other references and explanations. The Greek quotations have been transcribed according to modern conventions. Any editorial insertions are enclosed within square brackets.
In both Latin and English texts the paragraphing and punctuation have been brought more closely into line with modern practice. I have followed sixteenth century practice in using v for initial u/v and u for medial u/v in the Latin text. For consistency I have extended this practice to ail the Latin cited. I have sought to make these texts accessible to readers without Latin, and any Latin quoted in the Introduction has been translated in the notes. However for reasons of space it has not been possible to include the translation of ail Latin quotations contained in the notes themselves.
Bible quotations in the English texts have been given from the Authorised Version (King James Bible), with a note of explanation where necessary when details of the Greek or Latin text are discussed. Although clearly this version is far from contemporary with Lefèvre, it seems to have something of the same resonance for a modern reader as the Vulgate would have had for an educated reader of Lefèvre’s time, in that it is familiar, clear and authoritative.
The nature of these texts, unique in Lefèvre’s output, is such that they are relevant not just to theologians or historians of the Reformation, but also to anyone interested in the wider cultural history of the period, and my principal aim in this edition has been to make them more widely known and better understood. {p. 12}
{p.13}NOTE ON TITLES, SHORT TITLES AND ABBREVIATIONS

Lefèvre’s first publication on the Three Maries affair, which appeared in late 1517, contained only theDe Maria Magdalenaand theDe TriduoChristiand was entitledDe Maria Magdalena & triduo CHRISTI disceptatio.... The second publication, which appeared in summer 1518, as well as revised versions of these two tracts, also contained Clichtove’s prefatory epistle and a new third section on the daughters of St. Anne. It was entitledDe Maria Magdalena, Triduo Christi,
Et ex tribus vna Maria, disceptatio Secunda Emissio.The first three texts in the current edition are those of thisSecunda Emissio.
When referring here to the whole of the first edition, I shall use the short title De Maria Magdalena. When referring to the whole of the second edition, I shall use the short titleSecunda Emissio.for references to individual tracts However and comparisons between the editions, etc., the following abbreviations will be used. DMM I (De Maria Magdalena, first edition) = the tract on the Magdalen in the first (1517) edition.
DMM II (De Maria Magdalena,second edition) = the tract on the Magdalen in the second (1518) edition, including Clichtove’s prefatory epistle.

DUET =De Vna ex Tribus,tract on the daughters of St. Anne, which first the appeared in the second (1518) edition. (The title page of theSecunda Emissio has "... ex tribus vna Maria.." but the heading to the text itself (fo. 62v) has "De Vna ex Tribus Maria").
H = the 1518 Hagenau edition, which reprinted the first (1517) edition.
T = Estienne’sTertia Emissio(1519) which reprinted theSecunda Emissio.
Lefèvre’s final publication in the debate, entitledDe Tribus et Vnica Magdalena Disceptatio Secunda, which appeared in early summer, 1519, was a new text{p. 14}discussing only the Magdalen question. This is referred to by the short title Disceptatio Secunda.
