Get the beauty of the abbey of Vézelay, admire, as they deserve, the tympanum, the capitals - the most famous, the "mystical mill" - that is to listen to the inflections of a fine writing stolen. Straightforward and with the humble flippancy of great talents, she talks to the Eternal and stages the universe, and all its inhabitants.

These works of art, reflections of the inner man, have not aged because in them the symbol still operates. In them, the beautiful and the useful have come together under the command of the monks and in the gestures of the builders to magnify the greatness of any human vocation.

Robert Pirault lived in Vézelay for a long time. In summer, he often tried to convey his enthusiasm to visitors of a moment; in the harsh season of winter, alone in the immense vessel, he had time to pursue his quest for the meaning of this sculpture, the keys of which are to be found in the Fathers of the Church or in the works XNUMXth century spirituals.

Here he offers us the fruit of research that analyzes every detail of the sculpture, even inviting us to go through this “School of Mill "that turns multiple grains into a unified flour and bread.
