En los angeles Edad Media las grandes y majestuosas catedrales así como las iglesias más modestas o ermitas y capillas se edificaron respetando estrictos rituales y leyes concretas que custodiaban los miembros de las cofradías, auténticas logias iniciáticas.
Allí donde las fuerzas del Cielo y de l. a. Tierra confluyen, siguiendo el recorrido del sol desde el alba al ocaso, donde el hombre puede trascender su condición humana, el maestro de obra clavaba su bastón, símbolo de autoridad y conocimiento y punto de partida para sus mediciones.
Recorrer el espacio sagrado y ordenado de estas construcciones es emprender un viaje iniciático de las Tinieblas a l. a. Luz, es los angeles victoria de lo eterno sobre lo perecedero, de lo espiritual sobre lo material.
Todos los saberes ocultos y los ritos ancestrales que los maestros constructores plasmaron en los angeles mudez de l. a. piedra. Un recorrido por l. a. alquimia y los angeles arquitectura enriquecido con un importante apartado gráfico.

Le 27 novembre 1095, à Clermont, le pape Urbain II lance un vivid appel à los angeles chrétienté : il faut aller libérer Jérusalem et les Lieux saints de l. a. tutelle des musulmans. À compter de là et jusqu’au milieu du XIIIe siècle, les croisades se succèdent, l. a. dernière se soldant par l. a. mort de saint Louis. En réalité, les choses sont moins simples qu’il n’y paraît : Urbain II n’a jamais employé le mot « croisade », pour commencer. Et le Moyen Âge tout entier est travaillé par des mouvements collectifs, des pèlerinages exaltés, des guerres saintes, qui rendent l. a. suggestion de croisade très difficile à appréhender. Aujourd’hui encore, elle suscite des débats houleux parmi les historiens.
L’auteur de ce petit livre se suggest de faire le aspect sur le sujet, en recourant – on le lui pardonnera – à une métaphore culinaire : « Que faut-il pour réussir une mayonnaise ? Un bol et une cuillère de bois, un jaune d’oeuf, de l. a. moutarde, de l’huile. On mélange jaune d’oeuf et moutarde et l’on ajoute peu à peu l’huile, le tout étant vivement battu à los angeles cuillère, salé et poivré. Et l’on obtient un objet culinaire complètement nouveau. Que faut-il pour qu’il y ait croisade ? Un contexte – favorable – de réforme, un pape inspiré, l’idée de los angeles libération des Églises d’Orient, l. a. guerre sainte, le pèlerinage pénitentiel, los angeles rémission des péchés et Jérusalem. De cet amalgame (lui aussi divin, automobile inspiré par Dieu !) naît l. a. croisade : une idée neuve, un objet historique nouveau. »
