The term “Jardin d’intelligence”

Posted on December 12th, 2007 by Sian Jones

John M. Lindsay says: “In ‘Myth and politics: Versailles and the fountain of Latoran’, author Nathan T. Whitman refers to Versailles as a jardin d’intelligence. A quick scan of the literature doesn’t tell me the origin of this concept, its provenance, or even what it might mean. Can anyone give me a pointer?”
