Cormery et son territoire : origines et transformations d'un établissement monastique dans la longue durée (8 e -18 e siècles)

Abstract : The purpose of this research is to characterize the topographic, functional and architectural aspects of the benedictine abbey of Cormery, founded in Touraine by the community of St Martin in 791 and which was in use until the French Revolution. This multi-scalar approach of the monastery is based on written sources and standing architectural remains which include the monastic buildings. The first part of this work is dedicated to analyze the foundation process of the monastery in the Indre Valley, especially the link with the river. Secondly, the architectural study of the remains of the abbey church and the still-standing Romanesque western tower was carried out with photogrammetric and lasergrammetric recording. Finally, we conclude this work with the analysis of the spatial organization of the monastic settlement and its periphery where a medieval market town developed.
