Abstract

C'est en rencontrant la répression du blasphème dans les codes disciplinaires maritimes qu'Alain Cabantous a entrepris une enquête systématique sur la parole impie, entre les Réformes et le premier XIXe siècle. Par fidélité au second commandement, "Tu ne prononceras pas en vain le nom de Dieu", une véritable police de la langue veille à la stabilité d'un monde dans lequel sacré et profane sont profondément liés. Révélateurs de la non- ou mal-croyance, de la violence, des codes d'une corporation, le blasphème constitue un fait social qui mobilise la parole et ses usages, les pouvoirs ecclésiastique, politique et judiciaire, les structures et les représentations des sociétés de l'Europe moderne. Ainsi l'histoire du "péché de langue" rejoint celle des multiples procédures mises en oeuvre pour christianiser l'Occident et adoucir les moeurs. S'il semble s'effacer au XIXe siècle, il n'y a là qu'apparence : la parole blasphématoire témoigne de ce qui, pour chaque époque, demeure sacré.

Abstract

This collection centers around two trends that currently influence freedom of expression. The first trend confirms the fact that many Western countries have become, over a long period of time, less strict about sacrilegious expression. In the process, many repealed their blasphemy laws or became less harsh in their punishment of blasphemy, hence "the fall of blasphemy law." The second trend manifests an opposite movement, hence "the rise of blasphemy law". Over the last decades, namely, Western societies have witnessed multiple attempts to suppress speech that defames religion. To be sure, one particularly vicious way of re-energizing these interdicts against blasphemy has come from radical believers intent upon removing blasphemy from the public domain by violent means. With contributions by scholars from a wide range of disciplines, this volume seeks to offer an examination of topical issues relating to freedom of expression, censorship, and blasphemy in contemporary multicultural democracies.
