Sens dessus dessous : saint Michel et son Mont

Étude à partir d’une enluminure inédite d’un manuscrit breton
Esther Dehoux
p. 189-208

Abstracts

Grounded on an unpublished illumination taken from a Breton manuscript, this research has then been broadened to the whole set of miniatures which associate Archangel Michael with the Norman sanctuary. After having led an explanatory approach, it is a matter of analysing these representations in order to bring out their religious as well as their political symbolical meanings. Mount Saint Michael then appears as a holy place which testifies of the special protection the archangel attached both to his sanctuary and to the kingdom of France in general.
