Eglise Saint Andre de l'Europe Reviews
Cette église encadrée par des immeubles , se trouve dans le quartier dit de " L'Europe " au n° 24 bis rue de Saint Pétersbourg , dans le 8 ème arrondissement . Rattachée au couvent des Oblates de l'Im... more »This church framed by buildings, is located in the neighborhood said of "Europe" in the No. 24 bis street of Saint Petersburg, in the 8th arrondissement. Attached to the convent of the Oblates of the Immaculate Conception, its construction extends from 1876 to 1900. It is in style neo Gothic, without ostentatious ornament. What makes the interest of this church, is the canopy of the apse, with its large windows that glorify "l ' ultra Montanism" IE the preponderance of the Pope over all other religious, civil and political authorities! This doctrine was created after the signing of the Concordat between Napoleon I er and the Pope, in 1801. The three windows at the oculus of the apse represent the attributes of this doctrine. Œuvre of the very religious glass master Georges Claudius Lavergne (1815-1887), these stained glass windows illustrate, the Immaculate Conception in the Lancet of the Center with our heavy Lady. The left, takes up the dogma of the fathers of the Church and Saints. The right, symbolizes the Catholic faith and its ancestral roots with the tree of Jesse (with Moses, David and the Sacred Heart), and Adam and Eve expelled from Paradise (SIC). The Jesse tree represents the tree (alleged) Jesus of Nazareth, from the old testament, namely Jesse, father of King David. In the centre, in a niche, you can see a large wooden statue carved of St Andrew carrying the cross of his ordeal. The façade, with its porch topped a large rose window, is quite aesthetic but very bare. The statue of Saint Andrew is above the entrance. The rest of the building presents no particular character, with its columns with capitals with foliage and its arches. The triforium of the sides down, is quite successful and the side windows at geometric designs, light of the nave. A Pieta in marble, very expressive, of Georges Serraz (1883-1964) is in the right ambulatory and some original statues are of good quality like that of Saint Joseph in carved wood very athletic! This church is accessible by the metro station "Place Clichy" lines No. 2 and 13. Then you take the street of Saint Petersburg, which leaves from the West side square.
Belle église construite à la fin du 19e siècle. La voute est tres haute pour un édifice plutot étroit, dans un style neo-gothique. more »Beautiful church built at the end of the 19th century. The vault is very high for a rather narrow building, in a neo-gothique style.
I really like this little church hidden between two buildings.
