A Vézelay, au XIIème siècle, la Basilique vient d'être achevée, mais la Croix sommitale tombe au moment d'être posée, tuant un homme, et après ce mauvais présage, la Basilique est incendiée. Il ne reste que des ruines. Signe du ciel ou action humaine ? Le maître abbé hésite à trancher tandis que le vice abbé cherche le coupable.

In Vézelay, in the 12th century, the Basilica was just completed, but the summit cross fell just as it was being laid, killing a man, and after this bad omen, the Basilica was burned down. There are only ruins left. Sign of the sky or human action? The master abbot hesitates to decide while the vice abbot seeks the guilty party.
