Mettre en image les deux cités augustiniennes

Abstract : This article points out the rhetorical dimension of the two cities defined by S. Augustine, the civitas Dei and the civitas terrena (or diaboli) ; then it considers the different treatments of such a dimension in the verbal and in the visual code. In order to deepen this semiotic comparison the author examines a wellknown illuminated manuscript of the De civitate Dei (Plut. 12.17; Canterbury ? 1120-1130). In keeping with the Augustinian treatise as well as with its medieval reception, the article offers a new and original insight of the four depicted folios, which open this manuscript.
