But to spread throughout Christendom the game had to undergo a certain number of transformations. The first of them concerned colors. We should pause to consider this change. In the original Indian game, and then in the Arabic-Muslim version, black pieces and red pieces opposed each other on the chessboard—as is still the case today in the East. These two colors formed a pair of opposites in Asia from time immemorial. The European symbolic color system was totally oblivious to it. Thus, over the Moors Playing Chess course of the eleventh century the color of one set of pieces Originating in northern India, the game of chess changed to provide an opposition conforming more to Western was introduced to Europe by the Muslims of values, and white pieces faced red pieces on the chessboard.
Spain and Sicily in about the year In fact, for the secular world in the feudal period white and red Originally black pieces and red pieces opposed represented a more powerful contrast than white and black, each other on the chessboard. It was only more significant in the religious domain. For two or three during the thirteenth century that the colors we centuries white and red pieces thus appeared on European are familiar with today appeared: white pieces chessboards, the squares of which themselves were these two versus black pieces.
Here we see one of the colors. Then another change occurred beginning in the mid- oldest examples.

Nevertheless he is T almost unknown in Jewish traditions and does not appear in the Old Testament, at least not in the form that Christian traditions have given him. In the Bible it is the Gospels that reveal his existence, and the Apocalypse that grants him a major role. Subsequently, the church fathers definitively made him a demonic power, daring to defy God.
The Old Testament had absolutely no investment in this dualistic conception of the universe in which the principles of Good and Evil confronted one another, but the Christian tradition was more ambiguous on this point. Of course it is not Manichean—far from it. Christian After the year the color black began to become theology considered it genuine heresy, perhaps even the less prominent in daily life and social codes and then to lose a good portion greatest heresy, to believe in the existence of two divinities and to grant the devil the same status as God. The devil was not in of its symbolic ambivalence.
The Apocalypse announced his short-lived reign, which would dead, times of affliction and penitence, sin and the forces of evil. Henceforth the positive precede the end of time. In the everyday lives of whole symbolic field. The ordinary men and women, and perhaps even more in the lives of discourse of theologians and moralists, liturgical and funeral practices, artistic creations and monks, it was a different story. The devil was present everywhere and wielded considerable power, nearly as considerable as that iconography, chivalric customs and the first heraldic codes all converged to make black a of God himself; hence the whole pastoral domain and everyday sinister, deathly color.
In the area of clothing only the Benedictine monks remained faithful to it moral life saw Good and Evil, completely without nuance, and continued to let their robes proclaim the ancient virtues of a color now scorned, rejected, confronting one another.

On his back were attached two wings bat before granting him a pair of wings he was a fallen angel, after texts of the New Testament and to commentaries by the church wings , recalling his condition as fallen angel, and a tail monkey all and then exaggerating his animal characteristics. His head, on the In art and images the devil hardly appeared before the sixth the center of the earth, a place of darkness, and an ocean of fire.
It is Romanesque art that features him prominently and darkness on the one side; coolness, pleasures, and light on the flames of hell. The expression on his face, sometimes adorned beginning in the mid-eleventh century makes him almost as other. The flames of hell, which exhibit the peculiarity of burning with a snout or muzzle, was a grimace: his grin stretching common a figure as Christ. He does not appear alone, but without illuminating, are not meant to consume the bodies of the from ear to ear, his appearance distorted and cruel.

Weak and sinful, men saw the devil For the great theologians this place of terror, for which sinful and expressiveness. He was, it seemed to me, small in size, with a tympana of the great churches. There Christ the Judge appears, and jealous rage at seeing the chosen in paradise. When the spindly neck, an emaciated face, very black eyes, a prominent, enthroned in majesty, with Saint Michael assisting him in theologians spoke of physical punishments involving the senses, Satan Devouring the Damned preceding strained forehead, pinched nostrils, a mouth in the form of a identifying the chosen and the damned by listing their good they remained more vague: fire, cold, darkness, noise, suffering.
The archangel weighs the souls on a scale A few imaginative authors and many artists in the Romanesque have a monopoly on black devils. Black ears were pointed and hairy, his hair tousled and on end, his that a demon fraudulently tries to tip to his side. To the right of period created the series of appalling tortures seen first in mural remained the color most frequently used to teeth like the fangs of a dog; the back of his skull was pointed, Christ, the chosen, dressed in long robes, guided by an angel paintings, then on the tympana and capitals of churches, and represent Satan in the Gothic period.
Here it his chest distended, and he was hunchbacked; his buttocks make their way toward paradise, where they are welcomed either finally in stained-glass windows and illuminations. The idea was paired with red, representing the flames hung and trembled and he wore on his thin body the tatters of by Abraham and the patriarchs or by Saint Peter, recognizable emerged gradually that a specific kind of torture corresponded of hell and the blood of the damned, whose dark, sordid clothes. At white bodies are being devoured by the prince in general the devil appeared completely naked and was and terrified, are cast into the abyss of hell by laughing, sneering the beginning of the thirteenth century, when the system of the of darkness.
Black, red, white: the kind represented that way. Black played an avarice with black. They Florence, Museo di San Marco. Above all they watched for weakness among the unvalued and evil color. They were and red devils, indeed even black-and-red devils: black body and defeated through prayer and faith in Christ; the light of a candle, red head, red body and black head, or even bicolored body the sound of the bells, the sprinkling of holy water constituted striped, spotted and entirely black head.
These two colors defenses against their attacks. Exorcisms—apotropaic gestures came directly from hell; they were the colors of darkness and and formulas recited by the bishop or his representative—were infernal flames. The devil displayed them and made them even also a way of banishing them or expelling them from the body of more evil by doing so.
Of course, reds existed in Romanesque the possessed. In the West, beginning in the eleventh black was wholly diabolical. They became numerous in the thirteenth century, qualities of those who resided there, who came and went there, especially in stained-glass windows, and contributed in their turn but it does not explain everything. The Bible itself, hardly to the debasement of the color they displayed. They probably expansive on colors and much more so on light, frequently originated in the growing hostility between Christians and speaks about darkness and its oppressive or punitive quality, but Muslims—as green is the emblematic color of the Prophet and it does not always associate darkness with black and does not the sacred color of Islam, Christian iconography in the period of systematically make black the evil color.
Whatever the case, before and after the year and for many centuries, black was constantly called upon to adorn the body or clothes of all those maintaining relationships of dependence or affinity with the devil. It was not just a matter of black, but involved all dark colors: brown, gray, purple, and even A Blue Devil blue, which did not begin to gain prominence until the twelfth In images from the Romanesque period, the century. Before that time, dark blue was often considered and devil could be any color as long as it was a dark perceived as equivalent to black, a semi-black or a sub-black, one.
His hairiness was emphasized and he was used notably for painting hell and demons. The few remaining frequently given wings and horns. Similarly, the painted wooden ceiling of the Grisons. His dark blue, almost black, fur church of Zillis now in the Swiss canton of Grisons , almost contrasts with the red and white robes of Christ. Painted ceiling of a blue devil. Though this is not the only case of such of the church of Zillis, Switzerland, c.
Thus, unlike the devil, demons are not more, but less saturated, Satan—this is clearly observed in illuminations and seen again evoking the idea of paleness, a disturbing pallor. What is without in certain sculptures—was almost always the most saturated color is sometimes more frightening than what possesses too figure in the image, the most chromatically dense. That was a dense or too rich a color. Certain satanic creatures even pass for way of emphasizing and evoking the suffocating opacity of colorless, thus posing a difficult technical problem for painters darkness in contrast to the translucent quality of light and all that and illuminators: how to represent the unrepresentable?
How to was divine. Saint Bernard was not wrong to reproach color in represent in colors the notion of colorlessness? Many processes general and black in particular—he will be discussed further on seem to have been considered: leaving the medium of the image in relation to the conflict between black monks and white monks bare; greatly diluting a color thus confirming that color is, first of in the first half of the twelfth century—for being a thick envelope all, material, density ; using greenish tints, green being the least that hinders contact with the divine.
For him black is density and colored of colors for the medieval eye and for the ancient eye as density is hell. On the other hand, colorlessness is never expressed using Nevertheless, as is often the case in the Middle Ages, white. Like black, in the Middle Ages and even well into the customs and codes tended to violate or reverse themselves. Jean Hus Led to the Stake At the end of the Middle Ages, among the marks of infamy imposed upon outcasts and the condemned, figures in the form of devils were reserved for heretics. That was the case with Jean Hus, Czech theologian and author of treatises judged to be heretical.
He was excommunicated in and then condemned by the Council of Constance to be burned alive; on July 6, , he was led to the stake wearing a cardboard miter decorated with devils. Jean Hus Led to the Stake. Constance, Rosgartenmuseum, ms. An entire entourage of animals accompanied them that seemed themselves to have emerged from the infernal abyss and to bear on their bodies a share of the obscurity The bear was in effect the animal whose anthropomorphic nature was the most firmly established.
It passed for an ancestor or a relative of human beings and was even believed to monastery, was nocturnal, and often had black or striped fur. It prompted fear, especially when it was totally wild, as did the wolf, fox, and owl, other nocturnal creatures, and attributes of that reigned below. There is a long list of animals Satan liked to experience a violent, carnal attraction for women. Such an the devil. For catching rats or mice in the feudal period, the be incarnated as or that served as his attributes or constituted his animal could only frighten the church, which declared war on it weasel, which had been more or less domesticated since court.
It included real animals like the bear, goat, wild boar, wolf, early on, not only by organizing battues in the Carolingian period Roman times, was preferred to the cat and would remain so cat, crow, and owl, among many others, but also hybrid or meant to exterminate it and put an end to the last pagan worship until the fourteenth century. Christian But it was perhaps the wild boar that best incarnated the wild medieval zoology the bat is both rat and bird , or again, half- authors assigned the bear to the side of Satan, looking to the beast Christianity struggled so fiercely against.
The bear was human monsters like satyrs, centaurs, and sirens. They were all Bible for support, where the bear was always viewed in a bad only brown, the wild boar was truly black. By the fifth or sixth in one way or another animals scorned or condemned by light.
Moreover, we can observe that this abundant is the devil. Here again Augustine is maintained privileged relationships with the color black. They It went to the land of darkness, that is, hell. Let us pause to consider a gluttony, sloth, anger. Gradually the ancient king of the animals, Isidore of Seville, with some laborious lexical juggling, explained few of these black animals, the stars of the infernal bestiary.
It was a cunning, mysterious creature, diabolical ferocity of the wild boar were found in sermons, made it an enemy of the just—and violently rejected by Christianity, which saw it only as a black bird, a carrion eater, and evil. Subsequently, of vices. Its totally black plumage linked it to the negative when it became clear that the cat was more symbolism of that color, dark, sinister, and deathly. In much of mice, it earned the right to enter the house Europe, it was the king of the animals until the twelfth century. Miniature from an before departing for battle. Kings and princes made it the favorite English bestiary, midth century.
Oxford, animal in their menageries, and some even claimed to belong Bodleian Library, ms. Bodley , fol. There was no boundary between real animals and legendary ones or between legendary animals and monsters. Artists paid particular attention to the treatment of bodily surfaces. Whoever takes the trouble to look closely will discover their meticulous efforts to express the The Crow flaws, diseases, and disturbing qualities of the skin, fur, feathers, Like the wild boar, the crow, venerated by the and scales on Satan and his companions.
To do this artists Celts and Germans, was held in great contempt played with the contrasts between the uniform and the striped, by Christianity. Its habits as a carrion eater, its the flecked and the spotted, the different structures of frames or selfish behavior during the Flood, and above all partitioning.
The smooth and uniform were relatively rare and its black plumage made it the star of the appeared in contrast to all the worked surfaces. The stripe was satanic bestiary. Nationale de France, ms. Typical in this regard was the method of rendering the idea of the viscous, so common in the world of dragons and serpents.
Its dark coat, raised bristles, hornlike beasts. Its nocturnal habits, medieval eye. Desaturating a color, notably green or black, was creature. Treatises on hunting happily set forth its dark or black fur, its eyes and tusks that seemed to shoot a way of making it wetter. The case of the spotted was different; ten properties of the wild boar that were similar to sparks made it a creature emerging directly from the depths of it expressed an idea of disorder, irregularity, and impurity.
In the the ten commandments of the devil. The wild boar was ugly, it diabolical universe it served to render the idea of pilosity with The Ten Diabolical Properties of the Wild Boar. More than the color of their fur, it was their habits that earned them these epithets. Bears in the Forest. All techniques and all media—painting, T opposed the beings of light. For medieval theology light was the only part of the sensory world that was both visible and immaterial; it was the ineffable made visible and, as such, an stained glass, enamel, silver and gold, fabric, gems—were thus employed to make his new abbey a temple of color, because richness and beauty, necessary to venerate God, emanation from God.
Which prompted these questions: was were expressed through color. For him color was first of all color immaterial as well? Was it light, or at least some part of light which accounts for the importance accorded stained light, as many ancient and medieval philosophers claimed? All the theological, ethical, and even social issues notably in his De consecration treatise, written about — The light, it participated ontologically in the divine because God was Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, for example, completed in , was light.
To seek to expand the place of color here below was to still fully considered and conceived as a sanctuary of light and diminish the place of darkness, therefore increasing the place of color. Judging by Romanesque Christian churches, negative light and God. The quest for color and the quest for light were thus attitudes, those hostile to color—like the Cistercians, for inseparable.
On the other hand, if color was a material substance, example—were in the minority. Almost everywhere, churches a simple envelope, it had nothing to do with an emanation from the maintained a privileged relationship with color because like light divine, but, on the contrary, was an artifice frivolously added to colors banished darkness and in doing so expanded the place TO DISPEL THE DARKNESS Creation by man; it had to be resisted, driven from the temple, excluded from worship.
It was both useless and immoral, even of the divine here below. If, as for most of the prelates and theologians These questions were not just theological. They also had of the central Middle Ages, colors stood in opposition to concrete significance, an influence on the material culture and darkness, then black, the color of darkness, was not one of them. The answers they solicited determined the place In fact, it was their opposite.
Are we witnessing here, as early of color in the environment and behavior of Christians: places as the Romanesque period, the beginnings of an opinion they frequented, images they contemplated, clothes they wore, destined to be developed later, much later, first by a few and objects they handled.
Also, and most importantly, they Italian Renaissance painters, then by the great sixteenth-century influenced the place and role of color in churches and worship Protestant reformers, and finally by men of science in the modern The Black Mantle of the Virgin practices. Now, from late antiquity until the end of the Middle and contemporary periods?
Just after the year , in any case, Mary was not always dressed in blue. In images, Ages, these responses varied. In their discourse as in their such an opinion was a new thing. Missing from ancient theories until the twelfth century, the palette for her clothing actions theologians and prelates were sometimes friendly toward on the nature of color, barely imagined in the high Middle Ages, was relatively varied but almost always dark, color, sometimes hostile.
After the year , however, despite it seems to have appeared for the first time at the turn of the because she wore mourning for her son: black, a few exceptions Saint Bernard, for example , most of the eleventh and twelfth centuries and to be related to a new gray, brown, purple, dark blue. In Spain, black founding prelates of the churches were chromophiles and this theology of light.

Thus the beautiful, the bright, the divine, all three emerging beyond opacity, had to be diverted from color and, more importantly, from colors. I few in number and disappointing, moreover—so rarely mention colors. If the adopted the same clothing as the peasants and neither dyed nor not at all zealous about black. Although they considered color an Cistercian monks sometimes tolerated a certain monochromatic prepared the wool.
The most famous example is that silver and gold works, and glistening gems. He detested all that father of Western monasticism color was useless artifice. But of Saint Bernard, and more generally, of the Cistercian sensibility sparkled or shone, in particular gold, which was an abomination gradually clothing acquired greater and greater importance for as a whole. For Bernard—and in this he differed from most men of the monks; it became both the symbol of their condition and the For Bernard color was material before being light.
Thus the the Middle Ages—light was not brilliant. This resulted in his very emblem of the community to which they belonged. This resulted problem was not so much one of coloration moreover, when he idiosyncratic way of apprehending the various properties of in a growing discrepancy between the monastic habit, which speaks of color, Bernard only rarely uses terms of coloration: red, color, as compared to his contemporaries. It also resulted in his tended toward uniformity, and secular dress. In the Carolingian yellow, green. Not only was unusual and modern from certain perspectives association of period that uniformity already tended to express itself in color, color too rich, not only was it impure, not only did it constitute a lightness with desaturation, indeed even with transparency.
For not so much in a predetermined coloration black as in a range vanity vanitas , but it was related to thickness and obscurity. In him color was always thick and dark. The word color was not associated with ideas of clarity and admiring black, he shunned it and condemned it as the worst of colors.
Beginning in the ninth century that color—the color of humility and penitence—became the monastic color par excellence. Beginning in the ninth of monks living under the Rule of Saint Benedict grew considerably. In terms of color that translated into a sustained quest Miniature from an English manuscript of the for coarse wool fabric; it might be left with its own suint and Life of Saint Cuthbert by Bede the Venerable, natural color, it might be mixed with goat hair Carthusians , or it circa — London, British Library, might be simply bleached in the fields by the morning dew Ms.
Yates Thompson 26, folio 71 verso. It may also have involved a desire to shock; the boundary separating wool from animality was permeable. In fact, in the eleventh century, these separatist monastic movements for the most part bordered on heresy, which, in the Middle Ages, was often expressed through dress.
Many of them rejected black and white because they claimed John the Baptist as their inspiration, often represented as a wild man simply dressed in a bit of poor cloth made of a mixture of goat and camel hair. The Cistercian order grew out of this chromophobic trend. Founded at the very end of the eleventh century, this new order soon reacted against Cluniac black and sought to return to the sources of early monastic life. In matters of dyes and color, it also wanted to reclaim the essential principles of the Rule of Saint Benedict: to use only common, inexpensive cloth made of undyed wool, spun and woven by the monks themselves within the monastery.
Now undyed wool meant a color tending toward gray. It is impossible to know because the gaps in documentation are so great. For what reasons? To distinguish the choir monks from the simple lay monks? Academic honesty requires us to acknowledge that we know nothing. Black, white, gray, brown: these were the four colors used for the It was Peter the Venerable, abbot of Cluny, who first opened clothing of monks and religious figures in the Middle Ages. They hostilities beginning in In a famous letter addressed to originally had symbolic value austerity, purity, modesty, temperance Bernard, abbot of Clairvaux, he publicly questioned him, that gradually became emblematic.
The most renouncement. Such resides in this new symbolization of monks by color and by habit. Such indecency! Such scorn for traditions! Saint Bernard Henceforth each monastic order had its own color and responded to him just as violently. He reminded him that black proclaimed itself the champion of the color it wore. Henceforth colors took on an monks and white monks, with each letter exchanged constituting emblematic dimension that they hardly possessed until that time, a veritable treatise on what the true monastic life ought to be.
Heraldry was no longer very far off; it Despite many attempts at appeasement, the controversy lasted developed two decades later and began to alter all the color until — Thus, in just two decades, just as the Cluniacs were long symbolized by black, so the Cistercians would find themselves— permanently—symbolized by white. Subsequently, that color would give rise to various legends retroactively explaining its miraculous origins.
Actually, it is likely that, as for Cluniac black, the white of the Cistercian robe remained for a long time a symbolic ideal rather than a material Saint Dominic reality. Until the eighteenth century, producing a true white was Dressed in white robes and black copes, and a difficult exercise. It was only just possible for linen and even with preaching as their principal mission, the then involved a complex operation.
For wool, one often had to be Dominicans, or Preaching Friars, were often content with shades naturally bleached in the fields through the compared to magpies, as talkative as they were combination of the oxygenated water of the morning dew and and with plumage of the same colors. For the sun. But the process was slow and long, required much space, great artists, however, the black of the cope and was impossible in winter.
Moreover, the white obtained in was never truly black, nor especially uniform. It that way did not remain white but turned grayish brown, yellow, had blue, brown, and purple highlights that or ecru over time. Florence, San Marco monastery, dormitory. Their appearance on the battlefield and at tournaments was first linked to a material cause: the evolution of military equipment.
Since the transformation of the helmet and hauberk rendered the knight unrecognizable, he gradually acquired the habit of having figures painted on the large surface of his shield animals, plants, geometric designs that helped to identify him in the heat of battle. Nevertheless, this material cause does not explain everything. The appearance of coats of arms was more closely connected to the new social order that transformed feudal society. Like patronymic names and attributes of dress, then in full expansion, coats of arms provided new signs of identity to a society in the process of reorganizing itself.
First associated with a single individual and reserved for warriors, they gradually became applied to families and were inherited through noble lines. Women, too, began to make use of them. With regard to social and legal history, it is important to correct a widespread error that has no basis in historical reality: the right to coats of arms was not restricted to the nobility.
At no Heraldic Colors time, in no country, was bearing coats of arms an exclusive Medieval heraldry used only six prerogative of one social class. Black, called appeared on innumerable objects, monuments, and documents sable in the French language of to which they lent official status. Studying them is often the only heraldry, was neither the most means we have today for locating these objects and monuments common color red , nor the rarest in place and time, identifying their sponsors or successive green.
It appeared in about 20—25 owners, retracing history and its vicissitudes. Coats of arms were composed of two elements: figures and Armorial of Europe and the colors, which occurred on a shield delimited by a perimeter, the Golden Fleece, c. Paris, form of which was not significant. Within this shield shape, however, belonged to the same group as black. Conversely, if the field of colors and figures were not used and combined in any fashion the shield was white, the lion could be black, blue, red, or green, whatsoever.
They obeyed a few rules of composition, not but not yellow. This fundamental rule existed from the beginning numerous but rigid. It was these rules that most clearly of heraldry and was always respected everywhere the distinguished European coats of arms from other categories of infractions rarely exceed 1 percent of examples in a given group emblems used by other cultures.
Among these rules, the main of coats of arms. It may have been borrowed from vexillary one concerned the use of colors. Unlike the figures, for which the banners and ensigns—which had considerable influence on the repertoire was open, colors only existed in a limited number six in first coats of arms—and initially may have been linked to regular use in the Middle Ages and were called by specific names questions of visibility. The first coats of arms, all bicolored, were in the language of French heraldry: or yellow , argent white , actually visual signs made to be seen from a distance.
We these questions of visibility are not enough to explain the deeper should note that the colors represented here have remained the reasons for the rule, no earlier trace of which can be found. For example, change. To a new society—the one establishing itself in the West gueules could be light, dark, matte, or glossy and could tend just following the year —corresponded a new order of color: toward pink or orange. None of that mattered; what counted was white, red, and black were no longer the three basic colors, as the idea of red and not the chromatic, material representation of they had been throughout antiquity and the high Middle Ages.
The same was true for azur, sable, and sinople, and Henceforth, blue, green, and yellow were promoted to their even for or and argent, which could be conveyed by yellow and ranks, in social life and in all the social codes related to it. In this regard, the case of black seems exemplary.
Over the course of time the same coat of arms could thus At the end of the late Middle Ages, the kings of France still be represented in very different shades. But there was more. Heraldry did not, in fact, use these six But at the turn of the sixteenth century, Anne of Brittany, first colors without restriction. It divided them into two groups: in the the wife of Charles VIII and then of Louis XII, introduced to first group it placed white and yellow; in the second group, red, the French court the use of black for mourning queens.
That black, blue, and green. Let us who burdened the court for long decades. If the Ardent Chapel for the Heart of Anne of Brittany in the Church field of this shield was black de sable , the lion could be white of the Carmelites of Nantes. For the coat of arms, black was an ordinary color, not the most frequently used, nor the most diabolical or evil about it, but it also conferred upon the king of birds a power and incomparable potency that neither the white eagle of the Polish kings nor the red eagle of the Brandenburg in many cases, as we must recognize, their primary significance escapes us.
