PARIS AND THE CHURCH PART THREE
PARIS AND THE CHURCH - PART THREE
|View from Montmartre - in the centre Left we see the uninspiring|
bulk of Saint Eustache and beyond it the noble dome of Saint Genevieve.
|These two images of aspects of the exterior say|
all that seems necessary
But whatever the limitations of the external design, the beauty of the interior more than compensates.The soaring walls and their graceful windows allow the great church to be flooded with light .
Every awkwardness of the exterior is trebly compensated for by the noble proportions of the interior with its three aisles beneath soaring ceilings, and at every turn, a wonderful aspect of some sublime architectural composition or detail.
|TTHE MAGNIFICENT HIGH ALTAR FREE OF ANY|
The organ is said to be the largest in Paris , greater than Notre Dame and even surpassing Saint Sulpice.
|Magnificent 7,000 Pipe Organ Largest in Paris|
|A more remote view.|
|A more remote view of the Sanctuary from|
further down the Nave.
|Looking from the Nave across a side Aisle to a side Altar|
|Side Aisle radiant with sunlight ,looking away from the Sanctuary which is|
located to the right of the Camera.
|The superbly carved Pulpit looks across the Nave|
to a marvellous carved Crucifix panel.
|The Crucifix carved panel facing the Preacher in his Pulpit.|
|In this view , we see the delightful detail in the carving of the Pulpit|
ornamentation and its relationship to, and view of, the Crucifix Panel
confronting the Preacher from across the Nave.
|As this further picture of the side Aisle, taken with a wider angle lens, shows,|
Saint Eustache is a glorious inspiration to devotion, flooded with light
filled with beauty, and nobly proportioned.
