Histoires des noms des plantes : le Jardin médicinal d'Antoine Mizauld

Abstract : Stories of Plant Names : the Jardin médicinal by Antoine Mizauld is a PhD thesis in French literature and French language supervised by Fleur Vigneron.This thesis is part of a CIFRE agreement between the company Herboristerie Au temps des fées and the Imaginary Socio-Anthropology (ISA) component of the CNRS 5316 Litt&Arts research unit at the Grenoble Alpes University. The aims of this agreement are to carry out researches on the images of names of medicinal plants and to participate in the development of the brand Comme des tisanes, by Herboristerie Au Temps des fées.At first, our research works focus on the edition of the Jardin medicinal by Antoine Mizauld, a sixteenth century medical treatise explaining the properties of plants with mythical stories and entertaining anecdotes. These works are followed by glossaries pointing out the names of medicinal plants and practical definitions to better understand Antoine Mizauld's words. The second part is a commentary on the Jardin medicinal which analyses the position of the author and the formation of images of medicinal plants emphasizing the use of myths and current uses of plants in the wellness industry. The last part presents an analysis of seven medicinal plants (french designations, etymology, uses and myths), in order to study their archetypical traits and to establish their cultural history.Thanks to synchronic and diachronic approaches, this thesis presents a theory about the formation of images of medicinal plants in the French language. It also allows to implement an innovative protocol to create goods or services, by using researches in literature and methods of studying images.
