L'armorial d'André de Rineck : un manuscrit messin du XVème siècle (Vienne, Osterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. 3336)

Abstract : This doctoral thesis is primarily devoted to the edition of André de Rineck's armorial (Vienna, ÉOsterreichische Nationalbibliothek, Cod. 3336), a late XVth century armorial from the city of Metz. It includes a detailed description of the manuscript (codicological description, content analysis, biographical sketch of the previous owners), a scientific edition, a transcript of the textual material in the manuscript and in three additionnal related armorials placed in appendix. This previously unpublished material provides a major contribution to our knowledge of heraldics in Metz and within the Lorraine province. Tracing its line of descent hints at the existence of at least two previous armorials that are no longer extent. This manuscript is a rare testimony to heraldic activity at the Lorraine's court. Also, it testifies to the importance that Metz patricians granted to armorials among other intellectual, social and political issues. It appears tha Metz elite circle, sharing a deep concern for civic independance and recognition of their nobility as safeguarding this independance, used armorial as a manifesto to that effect. Our research put in the limelight the significance of medieval armorials as crucial socio-political documents.
