    Description:

    Below the procession of the saved, separated by pilasters and columns of dark stone, are statues of saints connected with the history of Arles; from left, St. Bartholomew, St. James the Great, St. Trophimus, St. John the Evangelist, and St. Peter. The bases of the columns are decorated with statues of lions.

    The outer walls of the present cathedral of St Trophîme are normally assigned to the Carolingian period. The church was reconstructed with a nave and aisles in the Romanesque style durin…

    Description:

    The left portal (Porte St-Jean) is an important survivor of the 12th-century Early Gothic period. The tympanum depicts the martyrdom of St. John the Baptist. In the lower register, Salome performs a balancing act (like a medieval jongleur) before King Herod, John is executed, and his head is presented on a platter. The upper register illustrates the legend that John was taken into heaven in ecstasy just before his death.

    The present building comprises an aisled nave of 11 bays, with a series…

    Description:

    The present building comprises an aisled nave of 11 bays, with a series of aisle chapels, and an apsidal choir with an ambulatory and three spaced radiating chapels. The substantial transept arms are aisled on both sides, with large eastern chapels, and developed portals flanked by towers. A massive lantern tower lights the crossing. The two western towers, the Tour St. Romain (1160-1170) to the north and the Tour de Beurre to the south, flank the façade, rising beyond rather than above the w…

    Description:

    This has been attributed to Jean Goujon. However, the marble sculptures on the tomb (1544) of Louis de Brézé, husband of Diane de Poitiers, do not correspond to Goujon’s style in execution; it is possible that he provided only the design for this remarkable two-storey classical structure, which has Corinthian columns on the lower tier and pairs of caryatids articulating the upper register.

    Description:

    t is the seat of the Bishop of Évreux. Begun after fire destroyed its predecessor in 1119, it was not completed until the 17th century, and its appearance reflects several phases of the Gothic style, with richly decorated Flamboyant traceried windows and a late 16th-century west façade. The cathedral has an aisled nave with a two-tower façade and transepts leading to a chevet with ambulatory and chapels. It was restored in 1896; severely damaged in 1940 and was subsequently restored again. It…

    Description:

    There were churches on the site since the 5th century. The present building of Gothic style is remarkable for its western Flamboyant facade and also for its cloister (begun 1240), the second largest Gothic cloister in France (the east gallery is 65 m long). The cloister gallery which runs along the nave was built and furnished in the fourteenth century and includes the chapter room, closed by a vast Rayonnant canopy; built by Pierre Perrat (d. 1400) who also worked on the west portal. (Perrat…

    Description:

    Dedicated to Notre-Dame, Chartres Cathedral acquired strong associations with the cult of the Virgin. Most of the 12th- and 13th-century sculpture and stained glass survive, to make the cathedral one of the most ‘complete’ medieval buildings in existence. The present cathedral was built after a fire in 1194; of the earlier church only the 11th-century crypt and the 12th-century western block survive. The cathedral, built of limestone, is about 34 m high and 130 m long internally. It h…

    Description:

    The lower right quatrefoil shows a hedgehog. Some translations of the eschatological prophecy in Zephaniah 2:13-14 have a hedgehog among the beasts ransacking the ruined city of Nineveh. Left is the labor of May.

    The cathedral, dedicated to Notre-Dame, is a classic example of 13th-century architecture and sculpture. Built between 1220 and ca. 1270, it replaced a complex of episcopal buildings. The names of the architects are known from the labyrinth (destroyed 18th century; reconstructed 189…

    Description:

    The form is three-tiered and foliate. The base is in the form of clustered columns (or the springing of supporting ribs).

    The construction of the Gothic cathedral began in 1273 and finished only in 1888 when the nave was connected to the belltower. It is noted for its Renaissance rood loft built in 1534 and for the fine, partly octagonal, bell tower. The tower is 205 ft high, the three lower storeys being Romanesque and the four upper ones Gothic. The main artistic works in the cathedral are…
