In the 7th century the political and economic situation of Visigothic Spain seemed to grow ever worse, yet it was at this time that there was established a Christian culture that lasted up to the 11th century. This culture forms the subject of the present volume and was the product, the author holds, of the survival of classical learning, on the one hand, and, on the other, the needs of a sustained programme of evangelisation led by both bishops and monks. Of the articles here, one set focuses on monastic life and the influence on this of Isidore of Seville; a second group examines the liturgical texts of the period, one of the key means of propagating the Christian faith amongst an often illiterate population. The questions of language and literacy, finally, form the subject of two specific studies on the availability of books in post-Visigothic Spain, and on a set of early medieval Latin texts scratched on slate. La situation politique de l'Espagne visigothe au 7e siecle semblait aller de mal en pire. C'est cependant A cette epoque que s'etablissait une culture chretienne qui allait durer jusqu'au 11e siecle. Cette culture forme le sujet du present volume et, selon l'auteur, etait le resultat du maintient du savoir antique d'une part, et d'autre, du besoin eprouve d'un programme d'evangelisation soutenu et mene par les evAques, ainsi que par les moines. Parmi les articles, une serie se concentre sur la vie monastique et l'influence d'Isidore de Seville sur celle-ci; un deuxieme groupe procede A l'examen des textes liturgiques de la periode, qui representaient des moyens de propagation de la foi chretienne au sein d'une population souvent illettree. Pour finir, la question de la langue et de l'alphabetisation est abordee au travers de deux etudes specifiques: l'une sur la disponibilite des livres dans l'Espagne post-visigothique et l'autre sur une serie de textes latins du Haut Moyen Age gratte
