RésuméDans les miniatures du manuscrit B.N. f. fr. 146, qui nous a conservé la version du Roman de Fauvel écrite par Chaillou de Pestain, le cheval Fauvel se métamorphose en homme à l'arrière-train de cheval (centaure) et en homme à la tête de cheval ("hippocéphale"). La contribution vise à démontrer que les miniatures qui mettent en scène Fauvel à la tête de cheval relèvent d'un fondement parodique, tel que dans certaines branches du Roman de Renart, contrefaisant les motifs des rites religieux pour souligner la conduite infâme de Fauvel.

The tradition of the Roman de Fauvel, realization of the most conspicuous satirical late-medieval allegory, has twelve manuscripts, to which are added two fragments of unequal length. In the twelve manuscripts, the text of Fauvel preserved includes the two Livres traditionally attributed to Gervais du Bus: With three exceptions, where the manuscripts I transcribe only the Book, that situation may correspond to some accidental factor, or depend on the use of a copy I carried the book, but also reflect the situation of an exemplar that has gone only this, which occurred in the composition and distribution of both books now finished. In one case, however, in the Paris BNfr.146 manuscript, the status of the text is exactly the opposite: the transcription, or one that appears as such, there has decreased, but is rather increased with a high number of additions.
