Chapter Summary

This chapter focuses on the De Musica Évrart de Conty, Charles V s physician, inserts in Le Livre des eschez amoureux moralisés (ca. 1400). He actually rewrites about one thousand verses from the poem Les Eschés amoureux (ca. 13701380) but adds a long digression about magic. Danielle Jacquart has interpreted this addition in political terms. The chapter would like to go one step further and claim that music is a way to include reflexions on esotericism in this encyclopedia. Considered as a science of proportions and an art of sounds, music can be a model to think universal harmony but can also be linked to more polemical kinds of knowledge.
