Balade à Aix-en-Provence au temps des sorcières

Aix en Provence - History - Sciences - Technology - Dates and program to be confirmed

Le temps d'une historie propose une balade insolite pour découvrir Aix au temps de la chasse aux sorcières. Marie-Christine Bernard vous transportera dans la ville du 17e siècle en faisant revivre Madeleine, dite "Princesse des sorciers au pays de Provence". En 1611, elle a déchaîné les passions et toutes sortes de peurs, même celle de la fin du monde.
Son histoire extraordinaire nous plonge au coeur de la grande chasse aux sorcières qui a sévi pendant plusieurs siècles en Europe. Mais au fait pourquoi a-t-on fabriqué un crime de sorcellerie ? Quel est le portrait robot de la sorcière à brûler ? Comment l'a-t-on "chassée" en toute légalité ?
Au-delà d'Aix, la balade suit le fil de l'histoire sur des chemins plus profonds qui nous parlent de l'Homme, de la société et résonnent étrangement avec notre temps.
