Jean-François Loudcher

From 1945 to 1947, and then again from 1953 to 1977, Jean Minjoz served as mayor of Besançon and set up a “system” of government that allowed him to maintain power while insuring the development of the city. What was that system and how did it develop? By examining the sports politics of the city, this article reveals how the municipal sports commission and the city council worked out a subtle balance between amateur sports and the promotion of professional soccer. The political, professional, and athletic implications of this approach led representatives of the big clubs as well as the local councillors to support a basic minimum level of sports infrastructure, which in turn enabled the mayor to realize his own agenda for the city's social development program and to assure him the vote of his electorate. This politics of compromise can be categorized as republican elitist.

Forms of Belonging in Early Modern Jerusalem

On 1 July 1592, his first morning in Jerusalem, Jean Du Blioul rose early so as not to miss the first of several ‘fine sermons’ given that day to the visiting pilgrims by the Guardian of the Holy Sepulchre. For the duration of the sermon, Du Blioul’s narrative, which he had begun some months earlier on leaving Besançon, takes on the voice of the Guardian; the listening pilgrim surrenders his narrative first person to the priest, a longer-term resident of the place and professional exponent of its significance. The sermon is consequently not so much recollected as preached anew in the text, its message directed at once to the small band of pilgrims gathered in Jerusalem and to the increasingly contentious and divided community of Christian readers back home. At the conclusion of the sermon, Du Blioul’s Guardian introduces the fresh company of pilgrims to yet another character, who will become the hero of the narrative as it develops, and the focus of the latter part of this discussion
