Office inédit en l’honneur de Nicéphore Phocas.

Office inodit en l'honnenr de Nicophore Phocas. Le meurtre de Tempereur Nicephore Phocas dans la nuit du 10 au 11 decembre 969 forme l'une des scenes les plus dramatiques de l'histoire byzantine, et tout le inoude a lu dans le beau livre de M. Gustave Schluinberger le recit emouvant de cette sanglante tragedie.1) Bon nonibre de contemporains, les moines surtout, virent dans cette fin tragique un ch timent du ciel·, d'autres, la mort de Nicephore parut un martyre, comme si les contrastes, qui apparaissent si eclatants dans toute l'existence de ce grand homme, eussent du le poursuivre jusque dans le tombeau. Damne pour les premiers, Nicephore passa aux yeux des seconds pour un bienheureux, dont on pouvait iinplorer la protection, et des miracles se produisirent autour de son cercueil. Ces impressions contradictoires, image de la societe si etrangement melee du XI6 siecle, se degagent assez faiblement des diverses chroniques; mais o elles se montrent en pleine lumiere, c'est dans une oeuvre anonyme que nous publions ici. Un office liturgique en l'honneur de l'empereur-soldat Nicephore Phocas, voil sans doute de quoi piquer la curiosite des chercheurs, et s'etonne qu'un pareil morceau n'ait pas encore vu le jour. Porphyre Ouspensky, http://www.deepdyve.com/assets/images/DeepDyve-Logo-lg.png Byzantinische Zeitschrift de Gruyter
