Synopsis

A decreter absurde et insense tout ce qu'elles rejetaient, les Lumieres se condamnaient bien souvent a ne pas comprendre les ressorts secrets des prejuges. Cle de voute de la catholicite, l'autorite du pape venait du coup a figurer une enigme absolue et a la lettre impensable.

Les Philosophes et leurs papes cherche, dans le prolongement d'un colloque de l'Academia Belgica de Rome en mars 2008, a faire le tour de cette enigme. Il s'interesse assez peu a la realite historique de la papaute du XVIIIe siecle, mais d'autant plus aux diverses imageries qu'elle suscite aussi bien dans les recits de voyage (De Brosses, Sade) que sous la plume militante des Philosophes - de l'Essai sur les moeurs de Voltaire a tel canular de pamphletaire.

On pourra decouvrir ainsi que le regard des Lumieres francaises sur la papaute, en depit de sa perplexite premiere et/ou en raison de celle-ci, est plus mouvant et sans doute plus ambigu qu'on ne pourrait croire a premiere vue.
