Pano Eglise Epernay

Notre-Dame - Epernay

This church, dedicated to Notre Dame, to owner of the city, succeeds that of Italian style damaged in 1892 and demolished in 1909.
The only vestige of this building remains the elegant gate Saint Martin (1540) located place Hugues Plomb. Most of the stained glasses, the high altar and the organ, as well as a tomb stone of XIV°siècle, were transferred in the new church. 
 If the first stone were posed in 1898, and the opening to the worship in 1907, the building was really completed only in 1915. But in the night of the from July 24th to 25th 1918, a bombardment caused the collapse of the vaults of the nave and damaged the frontage. The restored church, will be devoted only on April 13th, 1925. Faithful testimony of the Gothic of transition, its architecture in fact a place collected which carries to the prayer. The true artistic richness of the Notre-Dame church lies in the admirable stained glasses of the 16th century, with, inter alia, the life of Remi saint, Augustin saint and the cycle of the Virgin but also of other remarkable canopies: the charity of Martin saint, the tree of Jessé, the sermon on the mountain, the anger of Noah. 
 the organ of 1869 (classified historic building) signed Cavaillé-coll was entirely restored in 2001.

More About France

France is affectionately referred to as "the Hexagon" for its overall shape.French history goes back to the Gauls, a Celtic tribe which inhabited the area circa 300BC until being conquered by Julius Caesar.The Franks were the first tribe to adopt Catholic Christianity after the Roman Empire collapsed. France became an independent location in the Treaty of Verdun in (843 AD), which divided up Charlemagne's Carolingian Empire into several portions.The French monarchy reached its zenith during the reign of Louis XIV, the Sun King, who stood for seventy-two years as the Monarch of all Monarchs. His palace of Versailles and its Hall of Mirrors are a splendid treasure-trove of Baroque art.The French Revolution ended the rule of the monarchy with the motto "Liberty, Equality, Fraternity!" On July 14th, 1789 angry mobs stormed La Bastille prison and began the Revolution in which Louis XVI, his wife Marie-Antoinette and thousands of others met the guillotine.One decade after the revolution, Napolean Bonaparte seized control of the Republic and named himself Emperor. His armies conquered most of Europe and his Napoleonic Code became a lasting legal foundation for concepts of personal status and property.During the period of colonization France controlled the largest empire in the world, second only to Britain.France is one of the founding members of the European Union and the United Nations, as well as one of the nuclear armed nations of the world.Text by Steve Smith.
