Liber creaturæ and liber Scripturæ
The World as a mirror of Scripture in Bloy and Huysmans

  • Publication type: Journal article
  • Journal: Bloy-Huysmans
    2019 – 7
  • Author: Millet-Gérard (Dominique)
  • Abstract: This article reflects on the conception of biblical exegesis and symbolism in Bloy and Huysmans: two parallel itineraries around the looking-glass world of scripture, which Bloy certainly is responsible for, thanks to the legacy of Abbé Tardif de Moidrey. This is in turn inherited by Huysmans, who will implement it in La Cathédrale. In the first author’s work, there is the prevailing symbolism of history and its actors, and in the second author’s, a figurative and picturesque reading of creation.
