Emblématique et pensée figurée en Lorraine (1525-1633)

Abstract : This study suggests a reflection on the intellectual conditions that prepared the artistic blossoming of the "golden age" in lorraine at the beginning of the 17th century. To understand the originality of the cultural history in lorraine on the threshold of the classical era, we have chosen to give prominence to different expressions of symbolic imagery and thinking. Various sources have been used : documents from the archives, literary texts, iconographic documents, emblem books. This enables firstly to grasp the political imagery of the duchy of lorraine, an independant state gradually asserting its specificity between france and empire. The second part deals with the intellectual, ethical and spiritual aspects of humanism and to the propositions put forward by the renewed catholic church. Eventually, the third part presents three main moments of emblematics in lorraine : engraver pierre woeiriot's work, the activity of the humanistic circle in metz (jean-jacques boissard), and the religious emblems engraved by jacques callot
