La parole d'autorité et sa sacralisation par l'écrit : les représentations d'assemblées dans les quelques images du haut Moyen Âge

Abstract : If the figures arranged in a circle evoke the exchange, a legacy of Roman assemblies, the gesture of speech or the word of authority are rarely depicted in the images of assemblies, councils and synods gathered in this study (Utrecht, Unisersiteitsbibliotheek, Ms Bibl. Rhenotraiectinae I Nr 3, Fol 90v); Vercelli, Biblioteca Capitolare, ms. 165, fol. 2v-5r), but also that the handing over of the Bile to Charles the Bald, attended by an assembly of clergymen (Paris, BnF, ms. Lat. 1, fol. 432r). This images emphasize yhe importance of the written word: the scribes write, record. The word is well represented but in a written and sacred form, like "the word of Christ thought as word and, at the same time, transmitted in writing".
