« Un vaste local pour y étaler ses richesses » : inaugurer la Galerie de zoologie à Lyon en 1837

Abstract : [Link to open access file in the metadata] In 1837, a brand-new Gallery of Zoology was opened within the Museum of Natural History of Lyon. The inaugural speech of the foundation of this place of knowledge was given by the deputy-mayor Chinard. The opening of the gallery was made a significant event in the general history of the museum which had stemmed from the revolutionary project. This article focuses on the study of the inaugural speech imbued with idealisation, confronting it with a retrospective of its actual making. In so doing, my aim is to illuminate the ways in which a naturalist collection was inscribed in spaces of display so as to highlight the passage from the ideal of lieu de savoir to the fragility of the milieu de savoir and its crafted universality.
