  • Abstract: The Livre des Similitudes, attributed to Anselm of Canterbury, explains the key tenets of monasticism, and the way of attaining perfect obedience, supreme humility, and the renouncement of earthly pleasure. In this composite text, the five senses occupy a major place and are the object of analytical, didactic, and moral discourse. They express the ineffable and inexhaustible appeal of the different biblical senses, in line with a renewed poetics of sensation.
