About this title


English summary: John of Mandeville's original and exotic travelogue describes in both realistic and fantastical terms the world from Europe to India as it was known and imagined before the age of discoveries. The present French translation offers readers a much needed access to this unique text. French description: Dans son Voyage, Jean de Mandeville nous entraine a la decouverte de l'ensemble du monde connu avant Christophe Colomb, de France a Jerusalem, puis en Perse, au Caucase et enfin en Inde: autant de royaumes merveilleux aux palais fastueux et aux paysages foisonnant de splendeurs.Loin de tout europeocentrisme, Mandeville presente, dans un style colore et vif, un monde uni et ouvert, sans discriminations raciales ni religieuses. Pour cet humaniste chretien, rien n'est laid de ce qui est dans la Nature .Son Voyage& est tres vite devenu le premier best-seller de la culture europeenne: traduit dans toutes les langues des 1350, il a connu 250 versions manuscrites et 120 editions. S'il demeure un classique en Allemagne ou en Angleterre, il etait introuvable en France depuis plus d'un siecle.Chevalier aux origines incertaines (Francais ou Anglais?), Jean de Mandeville etudia a Paris, puis entreprit voyages et pelerinages en Terre Sainte et dans l'ensemble du Bassin mediterraneen. A son retour, il s'installa dans un couvent de Liege, ou il mourut en 1372, et consacra son existence a la redaction de ses peregrinations et a la compilation de recits de voyages anterieurs.
