This paper deals with Jean de Saint-Samson (1577-1636), a blind mystic from the Carmel of Rennes (Brittany). He was the author of a large number of religious texts but also a musician and a poet. It is his artistic temperament, traditionally secondarised by historians, that is the object of this study, with a particular attention paid to his mystical sonnets.
