Foi et croyance au Moyen Âge. Les médiations liturgiques

Abstract : The article examines the different liturgical modes of transmission of faith in the Middle Ages. The inquiry leaves the impression of a liturgical triptych wich describes the actual reception of faith by the faithful. The first panel is made up of the liturgical texts themselves which express the orthodoxy of faith as defined by the Church. The second panel contains the normative texts by which the ecclesiastical authorities attempt to harmonise liturgical practice with the content of the sacred pieces. The third panel of the triptych, containing diverse texts (hagiographical...) and images, opens the dimension of the senses by which the liturgy is ' lived", a dimension indispensable for the transmission of faith.
