Résumé
More than a millennium separates the great Sanskrit epics - the Mahābhārata and the Rāmāyaṇa - which were composed in the centuries preceding the common era, from the works belonging to what I will call the "Bṛhatkathā-cycle" - such as Budhasvāmin's unfinished Bṛhatkathāślokasaṃgraha (10th c. AD), Somadeva's Kathāsaritsāgara (11th c. AD) and Kṣemendra's Bṛhatkathāmañjarī (1037 AD). The aim of this paper is to examine in the broad lines what are the main types of travels undertaken in both categories of works, and what are the differences (or similarities) in the types of travelers, the modes of locomotion, and the purposes for which journeys are undertaken.
Mots-clé
