Abstract : This study of anthropology and religious studies examining the process of sacralization of territory through the giratory community processions, known in Britain under the name "Troménies" (from the Breton language tro + minihi, translatable by « around the monachia », the territory pertaining to a Celtic monastery in the early Middle Ages). They are characterized by a clockwise cirumambulation as a customary Catholic ritual gesture commemorating the founding by the parish saint patron. Eight Troménies (Bourbriac, Gouesnou, Landeleau, Locquénolé, Locmaria-Quimper, Locronan) are placed next to French examples (Ceaucé, Magnac-Laval, Larchant) and Belgium (Mons, Nivelles, Ronse, Saintes, Soignies). The study focuses on the symbolic analysis of all items requested by the ritual : place names, history, geography, hagiography, liturgy, ethnography, mythology, folklore.
