Vergers et jardins dans l’univers médieval
Centre d'études des recherches médievales d'Aix1990
Collective work dedicated to the medieval garden, with 25 articles that show different facets of these privileged spaces. According to the medieval mentality, the garden or orchard is polysemous: plant space, directly linked to the sublunary world, is also a symbolic place, in osmosis with mythical representations and cosmic influences. It is, therefore, invested with a symbolic entity. Medieval literature, and in particular courtly literature, explains this multifaceted and multifaceted aspect of the garden and the orchard. Alongside the lists of plants, ornament of the garden and also of litterature, the living world of the garden, a true microcosm, has its eyes turned to another place, which historical research makes explicit on an imaginary level.
