Figures de l’exclu et mécanismes de l’exclusion au temps de Bède le Vénérable

Abstract : In Anglo-Saxon history and hagiography of the eighth century (the works of Bede and his contemporaries Stephen of Ripon, Felix of Crowland and several anonymous hagiographers and chroniclers), most characters never seem to know social exclusion. The study of several situations which can lead to exclusion (excommunication, defeat in battle, flight, exile, expulsion, isolation, poverty, widowhood and disease) shows that this is due to two main factors: the importance of these characters’ social capital, and the authors’ narrative strategy of reintegrating excluded individuals.
