About this book

Language: French

The story begins with an apple, but maybe it was a fig, or a citron, eaten by Adam and Eve that caused them to be driven out of Eden. Thus began an incredible biblical epic in which the plants will not cease to be important. Today, these texts tell us about the symbolic power these plants have played in the story of the birth of agriculture ... This book dissects the sacred texts in terms of botany. We learn what wood used to build Noah's Ark or what variety formed the crown of thorns which girded the brow of Christ. We discover the etymological origin of the Hebrew names of each plant as well as their botanical definition. The story takes us to verses into chapters, driven by an illustration that reveals these plants in their Mediterranean landscapes of the Middle East. Whether you are curious about religion or passionate about botany, open this book and enter the gardens of the Bible.

Summary in French:
L’histoire commence par une pomme, mais peut-être était-ce une figue, ou encore un cédrat, croqué par Adam et Ève et qui leur valut d’être chassés de l’Eden. Débute alors une incroyable épopée biblique dans laquelle les plantes ne cesseront de jouer un rôle important. Aujourd’hui encore, ces textes nous racontent aussi bien le pouvoir symbolique qu’ont pu jouer ces végétaux que l’histoire de la naissance de l’agriculture… Ce livre décortique les textes sacrés sous l’angle de la botanique. On apprend ainsi quel bois utilisa Noé pour construire l’Arche ou encore quelle variété forma la couronne d’épines qui ceignit le front du Christ. On y découvre l’origine étymologique des noms hébreux de chaque plante ainsi que leur définition botanique. Le récit nous entraîne, de versets en chapitres, porté par une illustration donnant la part belle à ces plantes révélées dans leurs paysages méditerranéens du Proche Orient. Que vous soyez curieux des religions ou passionné de botanique, ouvrez la porte de ce livre et entrez dans les jardins de la Bible.
