Abstract :
À partir de sources de seconde main, ainsi que de ses données de terrain recueillies au début de notre siècle, l’auteur retrace les changements intervenus dans la pratique mongole du festin et conclut que s’il n’existe plus aujourd’hui de grands festins princiers, une notion mongole du partage alimentaire persiste. Au-delà de l’importance sociale que lui accordent les foyers domestiques, le partage des nourritures serait le reflet des pouvoirs politiques et religieux en place.



Based upon second-hand sources, as well as field data collected at the beginning of the 21st century, the author recounts the changes that have occured in the Mongolian feast practice and she concludes that if today the great princely feasts do not exist anymore, a Mongolian concept of sharing food is still a topical notion. Far beyond the social importance given by the households of the sharing food it seems that the sharing food reflects political and religious powers in place.
