SHIMAHARA, Sumi. Peut-on parler de millénarisme à l'´époque carolingienne? l'apport de quelques sources exégétiques. Temas Mediev. [online]. 2006, vol.14, pp.99-138. ISSN 0327-5094.

Millenarianism was officially condemned at the start of the Middle Ages, but it reappeared, although with less weight, at different moments and places. Historians studying the high Middle Ages have at their disposal few written sources which would prove the existence of any such beliefs and their interpretations vary. Thus, if millenarianism did exist during the Carolingian period, we must assume that it did so discreetly and in specific cases. No source mentions it as being a dangerous heresy. The analysis of certain exegetical sources proves that some orthodox statements are not an answer to any verified erroneous beliefs, but that they belong to the tradition of written predication. Therefore, an interpretation based on their absence in the sources ought to be used carefully in view of the present lack of any written proof of their existence.

Palabras clave : Millenarianism; Carolingian  writers; Heresies.
