Chapter Summary

This chapter approaches the topographical register in the Bernardine oeuvre from an interrogative perspective which hovers between two antipodal positions. A reading focused on the topographical register is a reading which gravitates between master-narrative and variation, between constancy and diversification. The chapter sketches the ways in which Bernard presents salvation history as a journey in a landscape; a voyage which takes highly diverse forms, in a landscape of multifarious locations; observed from a point of view which constantly shifts and presented by means of a broad palette of shades. The soteriological landscape and the anthropology that goes with it are presented in different ways and in different texts.
