Pèlerinages dans les Alpes - Maritimes Lieux et pratiques dévotionnelles dans les vallées du moyen et haut pays niçois Bilan des campagnes 2003 / 2004

Abstract : If it is a properly anthropological phenomenon, in the sense that it is found in all human societies, it is indeed the religious phenomenon. Whether one turns one's gaze to the past, or one carries it to distant cultures, everywhere and always imposes, massive, the fact of beliefs in supernatural beings. These have recurring characters in contrasting cultural environments and, at the same time, offer an extraordinary diversity of forms. It is surprising that, according to a fractal analogy, this interlocking of invariants and differences is repeated regardless of the geographical scale chosen. The data that Thierry Rosso and Cyril Isnart give here on pilgrimages and roummérages in the Middle and High-Country of Nice show indeed configurations of practices where iterative characters and local specificities are combined. As such, it is not presumptuous to see in this publication a tool which, in the medium term, should allow to better understand how, through the religious fact in the department of the Alpes-Maritimes, new identitary stakes originate and singular (for example, the question of the construction of locality and delimitation of boundaries) and the satisfaction of manifest spiritual needs in all human beings. Admittedly, such a task will require many in-depth ethnographic surveys, but it is all the merit of the inventory work returned here to invite researchers to embark on this path. It could not have been opened without the valuable assistance of the Alpes-Maritimes General Council. This local authority, and in particular its heritage department, is a faithful partner of the anthropology laboratory (LAMIC, E.A. 3179) of the University of Nice-Sophia Antipolis. May all elected officials and agents be warmly thanked for their contribution to this research on the religious heritage of our region. Pr. Joël Candau Director of L.A.M.I.C.
