Existe-t-il une pensée iconographique ‘‘ romane’’ ?

Abstract : Is there a Romanesque iconographic althought? In other words, is there a specific « thought in images » or a particular visual culture in the 11th-12th centuries? To wonder about the Roman singularity needs to observe what was the status of the image and the creation mechanisms in previous periods. Looking back to the Carolingian period aims at opening a reflection on a series of questions: do theology and the status of the image vary between the 9th and 12th centuries? Do the creative processes change through the first Middle Ages? Through examples of the early eleventh century, we will try to answer to all questions while dissociating the support - with its own techniques and its possible constraints (the medium) - of the image (the abstraction) to emphasize the inventiveness of the conceptors of the 11th-12th centuries.
