Résumé :

This article contains the edition and translation of two treatises about the care of the dead. Their authors seek to show that the lot of the dead is alleviated when their names are commemorated in church and alms are given in their name. In order to make their case they insert into their texts passages from the New Testament, episodes from hagiographical texts, and in particular edifying stories that show the efficacy of the care of the dead.
