Guérir et rendre malade : un exemple de l’ambivalence de la magie savante médiévale (XIIe-XVe s.)

Abstract : This paper deals with the latin traditions of texts of astral and ritual magic whose efficiency is based on the absolute power of God and which can produce good and bad effects, in particular heal and save people but also punish them with disease or death. Several examples that we can find in recently edited or yet unpublished medieval texts of learned magic give us the possibility to realize a synthesis about this very ambivalent fonction attributed to the magician at the end of the Middle Ages.
