1789, Droits de l’Homme (senza Dio)

Risultato della ricerca: Contributo in libroChapter


The “Declaration of the Rights of Man and of the Citizen” (1789) is a document of the western history which very soon transcended the specific original historical context to take on a universal resonance. Going across ages and places, the Declaration has become surrounded by a mythological aura, turning into one of juridical and symbolic archetypes of the Secular Modernity. By using a parabiblical language, the authors challenged the living world of the Christian Tradition, laying the foundations for the universalistic and anthropological claim that the Nouveau Régime of the French Revolution propagandized. In this essay the genesis and the inheritance of the famous Declaration are retraced, through a comparison with the previous American model and with the subsequent French Declarations of 1793 and 1795.
