Scientific approach to study Tradition
This re-discovering of ancient ans forgotten Art would not happen with usual methods, which are intuitive but empiric (and very approximative). Obviously they had failed in their attempts. The representation of the World by these ancient Masters is translated into a System, a true Structure, and it is verifiable in scientists term. This Structure was even used as a basis by Kepler in his work. This discovery encountered a long time an obsessional error, typical of 20th Century, which confuses Realism and Materialism. The Intuition, purely Spiritual, of Masters which preceded us, could not deliver its secrets under these conditions. Moreover, besides the realism due to the practice of Perspective and telescope, great Masters did not cease implementing, during Renaissance, the system which they had developed up to its achievement : Sacred Geometry. This Ideo-Realistic communion had for faithful practicers Botticelli, Vinci, Dürer, and Raphaël… Today we can analyze their works with arguments and methods of an Applied Science : Comparative Geometry.
Saint Andrei Rublev
The essence of what we know of this uncontested Master in Icons is in its works. The biographical and handwritten elements do not deliver anything about its practice, nor about the genius with which he developed his work (one saw him praying more often than working, but now it becomes unbelievable !). « The Holy Trinity » is a temple of Sacred Geometry, that Rublev made literally “responsible” about the Icon. He signed the work by a rectangle to the face of its Communion table. The in-depth analysis of the drawing reveals the main geometrical arguments with which Dürer will develop in « Melencolia-I », as its most hidden work (because of politics) : Tarots of Marseille, in the version that Nicolas Conver will perpetuate until 1760…
The contribution of Andrei Rublev to Sacred Art, as well as in the development of the language of Image, in a strict way, is priceless.
Les quatre sites de publication de la Géométrie Sacrée
Four web-sites are sharing the mission to publish our first elements of research, with Christophe de Cène, about Sacred Geometry and more generally about a Culture of Image which was built patiently during five millenium, until its achievement at Renaissance epoch, through the birth of Science with the laws of Kepler.
• www.art-renaissance.net is the place of methodology, thesis and lessons that this Culture implies.
• www.web-astrologie.com shows the transition from the symbolic system of Old Masters to what becomes Science by the genius of Johannes Kepler.
• www.melencoliai.org concerns the lessons of Dürer in geometrical construction, especially through its mythical engraving: Melencolia-I.
• www.andrei-rublev.com, site on which we are located, gives a wide space to the main russian Master in Icons : Andrei Rublev.
