Expérience de la beauté trinitaire et expérience musicale : relecture de la prière "O mon Dieu Trinité que j'adore" d'Elisabeth de la Trinité (1880-1906), à la lumière de la théologie mystique de la "Louange de gloire"

Abstract : Elizabeth of the Trinity, of her real name Elizabeth Catez (1880+1906) is a musician. First prize at the Conservatory of Dijon at 14, a big career was predicted for her, but she preferred the loneliness of the Carmel, while keeping her musician soul. The prayer « O my God, Trinity I adore » is a key turning point in the life of Blessed Elizabeth of the Trinity because it is rhe result of a mystical experience that will lead the carmelite nun to a deeper consciousness of the mystery of her own election. It is after she wrote that prayer that she was to formulate and develop the concept of « Praise of Glory » starting from the musical analogy. That is why, after a terminological clarification showing that the concept of « Praise of Glory » expresses an authentic mystical theology, apophatic and wedding, rooted in the St. Gregory of Nyssa épectase through the mediation of the writings of Jean Ruysbroec and St. John of the Cross, original and genuine hermeneutics of the sacraments of Christian initiation; we shall see how Elizabeth of the Trinity proposes an experience of the trinitarian beauty as well as a mystical experience of a musical type in the footsteps of the Augustinian heritage of the « De musica », the « De Trinitate » and the « Confessions », but also through the writings of Hildegard of Bingen and St. Francis de Sales. It is in the light of that terminological and theological clarification of the « Praise of Glory » that we shall reread the prayer « O my God, Trinity I adore ». A hermeneutic proposition will then be made, under the theological prism of the relationship between Trinity and History
