Résumé

Victor uses Theodore Lector’s Historia Ecclesiastica in writing his chronicle not only because it offers abundant material but also because it is driven by a dynamic which seems to him adaptable to the slant he wishes to give to his narration, in other words the preservation of the Council of Chalcedon and consequently, in his mind, the defense of the Three Chapters. Moreover, at the price of a quite significant reorientation, which sometimes proves wrong or confusing, it places it logically enough in a larger perspective or, as was already the case with Theodore’s project, within the context of a congruency between his life’s commitment and of the meaning of his story: for Victor, a resolute defense of the Three Chapters. In doing so, Victor honors as much as he appropriates the spirit of the Lector’s story. Above all he assures an unexpected Fortleben to his personal composition.
