Le culte de saint Martin dans le haut Moyen Age et l'Europe Centrale

Abstract : Eugen Ewig's basic study of the spreading of St Martin's cult in the early Middle Ages emphasizes a close link between the worship of St Martin and the Frankish monarchy from Clovis on. However this was probably not the only reason for St Martin's success. One can find a rich italian material, often prior to Gregory of Tours, which stresses Martin's prestige in Rome as in Southern and Northern Italy. Central Europe, ancient Pannonia, must have also attracted devotion to St Martin, first in ancient Illyria and then in the christianization of the Slavs and the Hungarians.
