Les églises médiévales du Var - Yann Codou - Les Alpes de lumière 162-163
Under this title of a rare sobriety hides a book of great wealth. Who would have said that the department of the Var conceals more than 150 sites, buildings, vestiges of the most distant past of Christian Provence? From prestigious abbeys, such as the famous "Cistercian sister" of Thoronet, to imposing monastic ensembles, such as La Celle, or more modest like the Montreux or La Verne monasteries, to cathedrals, large churches or colleges - Fréjus, Draguignan or Barjols - the great Var heritage is already known and visited. It is less well known that there are, in some fifty communes, a large number of medieval witnesses who, from late Antiquity - IV-th century. - at the end of the Romanesque period - 13th century. - tell us the long history of our civilization; that of those thousand years in which Christianity was born, developed, and transformed into that corner of the earth that became the Var.
Yann Codou invites us not only to a fascinating journey to discover this medieval architecture, but also to a detour almost obligatory by the rich vocabulary of the religious life and to a reflection on the place of the Church, in the organization of the frames of life in the Middle Ages whose landscapes still bear the mark.
