  — De Ordine Mundi: Romanesque culture and feudalism —

Between the end of the 11th century and the early decades of the 12th century, Liber Floridus (Book of Flowers) was written by Lambert, Canon of Saint-Omer, and the poems De Operibus Sex Dierum, De Ordine Mundi and De Ornatu Mundi were also written; the latter are attributed to Hildebert of Tours but they were perhaps apocryphal. Liber Floridus is an encyclopaedia on the wonders of the universe and the world. Hildebert's poems follow the biblical story and are a long hymn about human beings and their history, with allusions to the medieval belief of the existence of a terrestrial order created in the image of the cosmic and divine, an idea which goes back to the myths of Antiquity.
After considering those and other cultural references, this research (in progress) deals with the role played by the Romanesque temples as catalysts of the concept of "Order" in the central part of the Middle Ages (11th-13th centuries). With that purpose, it analyses and links two church functions which supplemented each other: the organisation of the social and economic space surrounding the churches and the enlightenment of society regarding its own nature and its relationship with the sacred.
