The Study of Medieval Emotions: Methodological Issues and Challenges

Long ignored, even hidden, medieval shame, and “Merovingian shames” in particular, have not yet been systematically examined. This lack of interest is not surprising. Usually veiled, polymorphous by nature, shame is not easily decipherable. With regard to this difficulty, a methodological discussion is needed. Beginning with a critical assertion of the traditional lexical approach, which consists in searching for and analyzing emotion words, this article constitutes an attempt to provide a methodological framework, applied here to a number of case studies. Several methods, such as introspection and contextualization by means of emotional scripts, liable to detect shame when it is not actually expressed or to make sense of it when it is too vague, will be experimented in the Merovingian corpus.
