Dynamique de l'humilité : la vie spirituelle selon Dorothée de Gaza

Abstract : The anchoring of Dorotheus in the spiritual tradition of the desert provided the methodology of this work. His texts are studied in dialogue with his spiritual masters. After the prolegomena which place this father of the VI th century in his context, the first part focuses on defining what humility is. The fundamental idea of Dorotheus is brought to light in the second part: the triple dynamic of goodness. The humility constitutes one of its components along with the charity and the knowledge of God. Dorotheus clarifies in a particularly interesting manner the intervention of humility within the act of goodness. In this second part, the mission of the humble Christ is also highlighted. A third part examines at the beginning how someone who is weak can reach sainthood, then it explains the role played by the humility in the spiritual struggle and, finally, its contribution in promoting an authentic fraternal charity
