Why did computer science make a hero out of Turing?

Résumé

This paper analyses the celebration of Turing as one of the heroes of computer science. This is done by (1) a comparison with the way C.F. Gauss has been instrumentalized in mathematics and (2) a historical study of two historical moments that help understand Turing's current status in computer science.
