At the crossroads of the ways of architecture, music and religion, the two thousand-year-old organ, presents us whith many facets, which makes it a unique instrument and sustains the artistic imagination.

From Verne to Roubaud, from Gance to Godard or Almodóvar, many are the writers or film-makers who testify of its vivid presence through their manifold representations of it. Wondering about the differents outlooks on this very special object, the organ, will set into relief the close relationships that have established themselves across time and space between art, religion and politics at the heart of contemporary European cultures.

Part and parcel of the collective imagination, literature and cinema will prove a formidable exploratory tool, a perfect means to awaken our capacity for symbolic interpretation.

This book addresses a large readership and aims at highliting the richness of his heritage.

Preface by Jean-Yves Bosseur.
