Description
"From the author of Hidden Gardens of Paris and The Streets of Paris comes a beautifully illustrated guide to the history of Paris through its renowned and beloved places of worship. When visiting the City of Light, the spirit of Paris can be felt everywhere. It holds a sacred history that goes beyond words, beyond religion, and its legendary places of worship are truly its crown jewels. Susan Cahill's Sacred Paris is a guide for seasoned Parisian visitors, novices, and armchair travelers to the historicreligious sites of the city, from the well-known landmarks to the sacred spots off the beaten track, from the magnificent towers of Notre Dame and the sweeping arches of the Grand Mosque to the serenity of St. Julien le Pauvre. This spiritual tour is interwoven with the artistic and cultural history of Paris from the medieval Crusades through the Resistance of World War II: stand in the basilica of Saint Denis, where Joan of Arc prayed with her soldiers in the Hundred Years War, and gaze at the murals ofSaint Sulpice painted by Eugene Delacroix or climb the hill to the Gothic Notre Dame d'Auvers that inspired Vincent van Gogh's beloved works. Organized by the major geographical sections of the city-Ile de la Cite; the Latin Quarter on the Left Bank; Montparnasse; Northern Paris on the Right Bank; the Marais-each chapter is accompanied by Marion Ranoux's beautiful four-color photographs. Also included are lists of "Nearbys": gardens, bistros, librairies, museums, and other points of interest to round outyour visit"--,Provided by publisher.
