St Sulpice

Images taken from St Sulpice: which is the second largest ‘eglise’ in Paris, next to Notre Dame. Built first as a romanesque church around the 14th Century – this second iteration of St Sulpice has similar gothic characteristics to Notre Dame and others around the city. The church is dedicated to the memory of St Sulpitius the Pious, a 7th Century Bishop, whose death in the 640s after a life long service to the Catholic Church has inspired remembrance of St Sulpitius every 17th of January. in popular culture, St Sulpice was most recently used as a critical part of the puzzle in Dan Brown’s “The Da Vinci Code”.
