medieval-religion: Scholarly discussions of medieval religion and culture
Dear Jim,
 
There is a beautiful prayer to the Virgin Mary, written par Pierre de Dreux,  which is as follows :
 
"Dame dou Ciel qui portastes Jhesu/
Par qui le mont fut tot enlumine/
L'heritage qu'Adam avoit perdu/
Par son pechie, fut par vous recouvre/
(si com ge le croi et il est verite)/
Deffendez moi, que ne soie vaincu/
Par l'enemi qui est fel et desve" 
 
Ref. : - Montigny, op. cit., p. 187
        - Pocquet du Haut-Jusse, Les papes et les ducs de Bretagne, reed. Spezet, 2000, p. 50.
 
 
Best,
ANDRE-YVES BOURGES
