L'Ars notoria au Moyen Âge et à l'époque moderne. Étude d'une tradition de magie théurgique (XIIe-XVIIe siècle)

Abstract : The Ars notoria (notory art) is a latin tradition of ritual magic ascribed to Solomon and Apollonius, which appears in funds of manuscripts in the XIIIth century and is a great success untill the Early Modern Period ; it promises the perfect skill of knowledge teached in schools and universities. A first part assesses the phenomenon, describes the manuscripts and isolates the different versions of a text which never stops to change untill the XIVth century. But what is the origin of this text ? The study of the manuscrips and texts, and the analysis of others sources (Gervase of Tilbury, Johannes de Alta Silva, etc. ) allow to defend the thesis of the north-italian origin (more precisely in Bologna) of a magical art initially ascribed to Virgil. A second part conducts a description and an analysis of rituals given by the different versions edited in annexes. It examines the nature of an art which defines itself as a sacrament as a proof of its orthodoxy, asks the question of its practical side, interrogates the sociology of its practitioners, and finds an end in a survey of doctrinal condemnations (Thomas of Aquinas).
