Initiation À La Symbolique Romane - XIIe Siècle ; Initiation to the Roman Symbolic - XIIth Century

£7.99

Product description

Le douzième siècle, cette Renaissance médiévale, est le grand âge de l'art roman.

L'homme de ce temps possède une exacte connaissance de sa situation : il est pèlerin de la Jérusalem céleste et, de ce fait, voué à une marche ascendante. Relié à un monde invisible dans lequel il se meut, il sait d'où il vient et où il va. Sa certitude relève de sa foi. Que cette foi se développe à l'intérieur de lÉglise ou qu'elle soit hétérodoxe, elle demeure vivante. Le moine y répond à l'intérieur de son cloître, le professeur dans son enseignement ; l'artiste en témoigne sur la pierre ou par la couleur.

Le monde est un, du macrocosme au microcosme, et il est signe de l'Invisible. L'art et ses symboles l'enseignent. Du portail de Cluny à la littérature du Graal, Marie Madeleine Davy nous donne accès à l'extraordinaire richesse symbolique du douzième siècle.

The twelfth century, this medieval Renaissance, is the great age of Romanesque art.

The man of this time has an exact knowledge of his situation: he is a pilgrim of the heavenly Jerusalem and, therefore, devoted to an ascending march. Connected to an invisible world in which he moves, he knows where he comes from and where he is going. His certainty comes from his faith. Whether this faith develops within the Church or is heterodox, it remains alive. The monk answers within his cloister, the teacher in his teaching; the artist testifies on the stone or the color.

The world is one, from the macrocosm to the microcosm, and it is a sign of the Invisible. Art and its symbols teach it. From the portal of Cluny to the literature of the Grail, Mary Magdalene Davy gives us access to the extraordinary symbolic richness of the twelfth century.

VG pages, some edge and cover wear.
