Les "Statuts synodaux" de Hugues des Hazards (1515 a.s.) : étude comparative de l'original latin et de la version française

Abstract : Treating the subject was impossible without the previous transcription of the original in Latin and of the French translation. Then the Latin and French concordance was very useful to compare the two discourses. Understanding the first thought of Hugues des Hazards necessitated indeed the comparative study of the two texts. But understanding the legislation of this bishop obliged also - and first of all to inquire into the first and direct sources which have modeled his thought and inspired his writing. The original text is unjustified without its many references to Corpus Juris Canonici and to statutes of Bertrand de la Tour d'Auvergne, from which it is an adaptation. The research into meaning permits to observe the efficiency of the French discourse. First, the translation is semantic. Most of the original text is kept. The majority of the words are taken from Latin, but the translator uses also words from the same family or synonyms. Secondarily, the translation is communicative. To communicate with the “illitterati”, the translator omits notions and sometimes, technical terms. Therefore, the meaning does not keep always undamaged. But it is often specified: with the synonymic reduplication and varied commentaries, the translator teaches and lectures the clergy of Lorraine at the beginning of the sixteenth century. The efficiency of the translation comes from a good proportion between the semantic and communicative translation. This adaptation which takes time, place and people into consideration, rectifies the original text and amplifies the ways to hit the reforming target common to the two discourses.
