The Gallican Mines: Martine de Bertereau and the Crisis in French Ideas of Empire

Abstract | Word Stems | Keywords | Association | Citation | Similar Titles



Abstract:

In the wake of the Hundred Years' War, French statesmen refined a vision of France as a perfect kingdom, endowed with abundant goods and dominant over its neighbors. At the declaration of war against Spain, commerce was prohibited in an effort to procure a rapid peace. The war lingered on, bringing a severe fiscal crisis that suggested a seeming flaw in France's benediction. Some argued that fiscal reform and free trade was needed to remedy France's need for gold and silver. Martine de Bertereau, who had learned mining, alchemical, and astrological techniques from her father and who practiced in the service of European princes, however, argued that France possessed sufficient gold and silver, but needed the correct astrological, divinatory, and alchemical tools to find them. In a series of printed works, she suggested that her counsel should be accepted. Her writings demonstrate the continuing power of the idea of France's imperial benediction in the development of modern economic theories.
