Orange Peel in Antibes
This epilogue discusses Michel Neuré's fulmination against foolery in the Franciscan church in Antibes at the feast of the Innocents, which he articulated in Complaint to Gassendi (1645). One of the last reports of a clerical Feast of Fools pertains to the Franciscan monastery in Antibes, in the south of France. The original report is found in Neuré's Complaint to Gassendi (1645), a sixty-page booklet consisting primarily of a scathing attack on Corpus Christi festivities in Aix (now Aix-en-Provence). Toward the end of his booklet, Neuré added brief but similarly vehement complaints about festive practices during December in the south of France. This chapter suggests that Neuré's report has passed into the mainstream of scholarly accounts of the Feast of Fools as if it were both trustworthy and typical.
