Description

Excerpt from Madame de Pompadour d'Apres le Journal de Sa Femme de Chambre Depuis les reines merovingiennes, Clotilde et Radegonde qui se tiennent au seuil de notre histoire comme des statues gothiques sous le porche d'une cathedrale bien des figures feminines, portant le sceptre ou l'epee, le livre ou la quenouille, surgissent dans l'ombre et la lumiere du passe. En aucun pays, les femmes ne participerent plus activement a la vie morale et politique. Elles enseignerent aux hommes les arts delicats de la civilisation, les finesses du sentiment et du langage, la fermete dans les revers, l'elegance dans l'amour et devant la mort.
