Throughout their history, the South-French Cities Arles, Aix-en-Provence, Marseille, Tarascon, Narbonne and Toulouse mobilized their Saints in the interest of local powers: church, city government, princes. Legends and cults with highly political impact were developed. In this book I followed the history of the local Saints from the 5th to the 16th century, during such storms as were the Abligensian Crusade and the conquest by the French monarchy. I collected various legends, diplomatic and iconographic sources.
