Correspondance de Marie de Hongrie avec Charles Quint et Nicolas de Granvelle. Tome 2: 1533
L. Gorter-Van Royen, J.-P. Hoyois (éd.)

Cette édition de la correspondance entre Marie de Hongrie, Charles Quint et Nicolas Perrenot de Granvelle pour 1533 (près de 200 textes) est principalement marquée par les instructions de Marie du mois de février et les réponses fournies par Charles en avril. Ces documents ont soulevé de nombreuses questions. En plus, d’autres documents, parfois non datés, sont apparus comme directement liés à ces instructions. Leur provenance fut difficile à démasquer. Grâce à un travail patient et minutieux, une comparaison des écritures a pu apporter plusieurs réponses aux éditeurs comme par exemple, l’attribution des différents documents aux chancelleries respectives de Charles et Marie.
