De Ta Prohm au Bayon, Analyse comparative de l'histoire architecturale des principaux monuments du style du Bayon

Abstract : The main purpose of this study is the development of the relative chronology of the wide architectural program of Jayavarman VII whose kingdom included all of Cambodia and an ample part of Thailand, at the end of 12th century. The construction of the general chronology of the monuments known to belong to the Bayon style are based on an archaeological analysis of the principal temples of this period supplemented by a stylistic study based on work of Ph. Stern [Ph. Stern, 1965]. These results are complemented and partially validated by an archeometric study relating to the magnetic behavior of the sandstone, principal material of which these monuments are built.
The local and global chronology of the monuments of the Bayon style allows bringing to light four typological classes of temples governing the whole of the architectural program of Jayavarman VII. Moreover, it has been possible to deduce which parts of this program was executed since 1191, date of dedication of Preah Khan of Angkor. This test of the absolute dating of the monuments of the Bayon style is the result of the comparative analysis of the relative chronology of Ta Prohm and Preah Khan of Angkor with their description and the distribution of their divine population as it was described in the inscriptions of their respective stele.
