L’‘Opuscule sur les natures des animaux, tiré des dires des saints et de nombreux maîtres’ : premiers éléments sur une oeuvre inexplorée du début du XIIIe siècle

Abstract : The ms. Bruxelles, Bibl. Royale Albert Ier, II 1143, from the Cistercian Abbey of Aulne, is entirely devoted to an unpublished and unknown work, The Opusculum de naturis animalium excerptum de dictis sanctorum et plurium magistrorum. According to the results of the first investigations presented here, it is a treatise devoted to animals, probably compiled between 1200 and 1220, probably in the diocese of Liège and perhaps in Cistercian circles, from diversified sources; these are mainly shared between two types of interlocutors: the fathers and doctors of the church - in particular Jérôme - and the « masters », gathered under the reference « magister », some of whom could be recognized as almost contemporary with the writing. The discovery of a contemporary partial copy in the ms. Brussels, BR II 1057 offers additional clues on the writing of the Opusculum, along with other elements that help to characterize and locate this very original work that has a particular interest in insects or other minuta, between allegorical dialogue and moralized encyclopedia.
