    • ”Cum putem lega politica de imaginar și structurile sociale? Un studiu clasic aflat la frontiera dintre istorie și antropologie, Regii taumaturgi rămâne încă o carte de actualitate. Într-o perioadă în care disciplina relațiilor internaționale se orientează, cel puțin în teorie, spre idei și identități, iar comunicarea politică, relațiile publice și marketingul sunt la modă, lucrarea lui Marc Bloch poate reprezenta un exemplu conceptual și metodologic, prin ambiția autoru [...]


    • A paradigmatic example of the Annales school of historiography. Even in translation this reads as vigorous and, often, wry. Bloch examines in copious detail the medieval practice of kings of France and England touching for the 'king's evil'. This disease was known as scrofula or, today, tubercular adenitis. The examination starts as a microscopic examination of the extant evidence for the origins and eventual development of this practice. Such an examination could be dead dry, but Bloch has a se [...]


    • To nie jest nowa praca i nawet nie będąc historykiem mogę zgadywać, że stan naszej wiedzy zmienił się od czasów, kiedy autor wydał tę książkę w roku 1924; niemniej, ostatnie wznowienie francuskie jest z 1998 i po lekturze nie wydaje się to bynajmniej dziwne.

Ogrom naukowych informacji (potwie [...]


    • This is a brilliant study of scrofula and the belief that the king's touch could cure it. Even more, it's a brilliant analysis of some very difficult medieval and early modern texts, using this as a way to get to both the popular mind and traditions regarding royal power.





    • King's evil. the king touches, God cures, the cure can be on the spot or gradual, unconsciousness in little human beings is the marker of rejecting the notion of faking.


    • Cum e cu gatul si corpul (scrofuloza)O oarecare argutie in ceea ce priveste atingerea si controlul garderobei, dar si hrana zilnica a celor ce vin sa se apropie (milosteniile).
