Book “A école du Moulin” by Robert Pirault - Sculpture in the Basilica of Vézelay

Receive the beauty of the Vézelay abbey, admire, as they deserve, the tympanum, the capitals - the most famous of which, the “Mystical Windmill” - is listening to the inflections of high writing fly. Without detours and with the humble flippancy of great talents, she is familiar with the Lord 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 met under the command of the monks and in the gestures of the builders to magnify the grandeur of any human vocation.

Robert Pirault lived for a long time in Vézelay. In the summer, he often tried to convey his enthusiasm to visitors for a while; in the harsh winter season, alone in the huge vessel, he had time to continue his quest on the meaning of this sculpture whose keys of interpretation are 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 to invite us to pass by this "School of the Mill "that turns multiple grains into a unified flour and bread.
