Ce n'est certes pas d'hier que le père Jean Déchanet a signalé à l'attention des chercheurs contemporains l'impact de la pensée grecque sur la doctrine spirituelle des maîtres du Moyen Âge latin. Dès 1940, une brochure intitulée Aux sources de la spiritualité de Guillaume de Saint-Thierry rassemblait un certain nombre d'articles de revues et l'auteur y mettait spécialement en relief l'influence de saint Grégoire de Nysse, à travers les écrits de Guillaume de Saint-Thierry. Deux ans plus tard paraissait une biographie complète : Guillaume de Saint-Thierry, l'homme et son œuvre, où se déchiffrait le visage pluraliste de celui qui n'était guère connu jusque-là que comme « l'ami de saint Bernard », son « conseiller » - pas toujours heureux ! - dans l'affaire de Pierre Abélard. La diffusion de ces écrits, entravée par la guerre de 1940-45, resta mince. Ils sont depuis de longues années introuvables en librairie. Plutôt que d'en rééditer le texte, le prêtre Déchanet a voulu, dans le présent volume, reprendre en main le problème et relancer son enquête. On retrouvera l'essentiel des études précitées, mais enrichies de données nouvelles. De longues pages, débordantes d'intérêt, sont consacrées à « l'entremetteur », ce Jean Scot Erigène qui a révélé à Guillaume, par ses études et traductions, la pensée orientale. Un autre médiateur, Claudien Mamert, est tiré de l'ombre. Enfin l'influence de Plotin et de certaines Ennéades est patiemment mise à jour. La conclusion s'impose : l'« augustinisme » de Guillaume nous a trop longtemps caché la vigueur et l'éclectisme de sa pensée. Avec un bel à-propos, l'auteur procède à l'identification des thèmes les plus chers à Guillaume, des sources, non de son langage ou de son vocabulaire, mais de sa pensée
