Since 1953, the eighth centenary of Bernard de Clairvaux’s death, Bernardine studies have been revealing the role this saint played in the 12th century, the epicentre of the Middle Ages, as well as casting light on the complexity of his character. On the occasion of another anniversary in 1990, that of his birth, a Colloquium ‘Bernard de Clairvaux: Histoire, Mentalités, Spiritualité’ took place in Lyons, Cîteaux and Dijon. The contributions are assembled here. Designed to be an initiation to the publication of Saint Bernard in the collection ‘Sources chrétiennes’, this synthesis of the most recent research will facilitate access to the Abbé de Clairvaux’s multiform work. By focusing on mentalities, it allows a rapprochement and even a mutual enlightenment between history, the fruit of the documents collected and their analysis; and spirituality, interpreted thanks to the influence of Saint Bernard over the centuries. The following five points are examined in order: the man in his world, the monk, the reformer, the thinker and the saint. This volume is a new edition of the first publication (1992) revised and corrected by Laurence Mellerin. The corrections have been made directly in the text. A list of the main errata noted in the first edition can be downloaded from the ‘Sources chrétiennes’ site. Supplementary notes are marked with an asterisk.
