Sumario: This paper answers the question: Was there heretic images during the Middle Ages? On the one hand, it analyses the heretic discourse concerning images. On the other hand, it examines the theological discourse as expressed by ecclesiastical authorities. In so doing, it is possible to observe a slow articulation of a figuration- and image-related orthodoxy. It is thus possible to observe how imagination concerning imagery was considerably limited by the eventual imposition of a canon. How the concept of “heresy” was effected with this purposes is central to this paper.
