Le livre dans les trésors du Moyen Âge. Contribution à l'histoire de la Memoria médiévale

Abstract : Treasures of the Middle Ages: the Book. A Contribution to the History of medieval Memoria. E. Palazzo. This article examines the function of books, in particular the liturgical book, treasures of the medieval church. This theme is part of a larger exploration of the status of the book in medieval society. In this particular case, the article examines the memorial function of books of treasures, in as much as they are preserved along with other objects which also contribute to the constitution of the spiritual memory of an abbey, a cathedral... After a brief resume of the problem as it has been treated to date, the author analyses successively the role of the book as defined within framework of the concept: medieval treasures; the spiritual memory of these treasures throughout books, themselves, and relics, and the liturgical and intellectual function of these books of treasures.
