Les relations entre Romains et rois barbares en Gaule de 395 à 534

Abstract : How can we describe the nature of the relations between Romans and barbarians and how did these relations allow the creation of new societies and finally a new world? These are the question this study tries to give an answer to, in order to have a better understanding of the changes that occurred in the V et VI century in the roman West. Historians have interrogated the relations between the roman state and the barbarians in order to understand the political disruptions related to the Migration Period but never have they tried to interrogate the people who lived it themselves: the provincial inhabitants. Under a micro-historical study and a prosoprographical approach, this work intends to show that the roman inhabitants of Spain and Gaul, with the german kings, are the most important part in the perpetuation of the kingdoms. This systemic study of all the Romans who have once collaborated with a barbarian kingdom permits us to understand what their roles was and how did they contribute to preserve the classical roman culture. It shows also how local churches have taken full advantages of the situation to develop themselves. If a political disruption between Antiquity and Middle ages is no doubt for Gaul and Spain, a social and cultural continuity still exists in these provinces explaining the early societies in France and Spain Middle ages.
