    Description:

    A rare survival in France is the rood screen, delicately carved with ornamental motifs and statues of Christ and saints. The exceptionally well-lit choir, shielded from the nave by the screen , retains much of its stained glass, executed between 1525 and 1531 by a workshop from Lyon.

    Former Benedictine priory church, dedicated to St Nicholas of Tolentino, near Bourg-en-Bresse, Burgundy, France. Situated on an important road linking the northern provinces with Italy, the church was built by M…

    Description:

    The exceptionally well-lit choir, shielded from the nave by the screen , retains much of its stained glass, executed between 1525 and 1531 by a workshop from Lyon. The axial window contains glass representing Noli me tangere (upper part) and the Appearance of Christ to his Mother (lower part), after engravings by Albrecht Dürer; to the left and right are Philibert and Margaret kneeling with their patron saints, their coats of arms above.

    Description:

    Early in 1755 Soufflot was appointed to provide plans for Ste Geneviève, the new church promised by Louis XV to house the reliquary of the city’s patron saint. A collection of drawings (Paris, Bib. N.) and Claude Boulleau’s engraving of 1764 show the building in its ‘ideal’ state in that year. Built partly over a crypt, where, for the first time, Soufflot used the Doric order of Paestum, it owes its grandeur to his use of the same colossal Corinthian order both inside and out….

    Description:

    A building of the 15th and the early 16th centuries. Round its top run balustrades formed of Gothic letters, which read as part of the Magnificat. It is noted for its west portal, the decoration of the spire of the tower, and its stained glass. It is in Flamboyant style, characterized by its ornament and also east ends that are often angular, in this case based on a triangle. It also has tierceron (star-shaped) vaults (ca. 1500).

    Description:

    Gailde’s only surviving work, secures his status among the most creative masons of French Flamboyant. It bridges the opening between the eastern crossing piers in a single span divided into three bays, without any visible support. This sleight of hand was achieved by means of radial voussoirs, the joints of which are disguised by the prolific sculptural decoration. Gailde probably also designed the choir of the Madeleine, constructed in the last years of the 15th century.

    Description:

    In the 13th and 14th centuries, the church was totally rebuilt in stone. The choir and the transept, damaged by the great fire of Troyes in 1524, were rebuilt 1545-1554. The 32 choir stalls are probably from the former Notre-Dame-aux-Nonnains abbey, closed down at the Revolution (current site of the préfecture). The nave and the aisles, with pillars, decorated capitals and sculpted keystones, have wide Gothic bays, which are noted for their stained glass, especially of the southern aisle ca. …

    Description:

    Begun in the late 11th century by the monks of Abbaye aux Hommes. Burned in warfare in 1105, but the nave was preserved while the transept and the high lantern (crossing) tower date from the early twelfth century; spires were added in the 13th century. The interior was remodeled in the 17th century in an attempt at Romanesque style. However the interior is noted for its band of decoration above the aisles; geometric decoration, a distinctive feature of Anglo-Norman Romanesque, appeared ca. 10…

    Description:

    The abbey was founded c. 1060 by Matilda, wife of William the Conqueror, as a convent for women. There was a consecration in 1066, and Matilda was buried in the choir in 1083. Work continued until c. 1130, when the nave received its unusual false sexpartite vaults. The church has a crypt at the east end, an aisled nave of nine bays with a twin-tower façade block, projecting transepts with an eastern apsidal chapel on each arm (that opening on to the south transept was replaced c. 1260 by a Go…
