Sorry I've been so absent...a lot going on. I enjoyed browsing back through your previous recent posts and I have never heard of this church!
It is extraordinary the number of beautiful churches in Paris!
Ever the eye for detail, Genie, you've found yet another interesting view.Bon dimanche.
Thank you for sharing this interesting photo, Genie! I have never been in Chartres and now I put it to my list of places to see next time I´m in France :-)Bises de Prague Hana
How many beautiful details in just one shot!
Such an intricate and delicate chandelier merits real candles and the photograph you've taken of it.
Light of the world ... Magnifique! Lovely Sunday photo. I love the colors in the paint detail and, of course, all the golden intricate carvings are exquisite! I agree with Paul that this chandelier should have real candles. I am so glad we went to Chartres and that I can benefit from your keen eye for my memories! Bisous et bon dimanche!
Beautiful picture dear Genie, this chandelier is precious!bises et bon dimanche!Léia
That is beautiful. I wish there were a "like" button on your comments. I feel like I say the same thing about every picture, while some of your readers write much better comments. I can only agree with them in my pedantic way. (I hope that's the correct use of that word.)
Quelle belle pièce... Vraiment somptueux...gros bisous et bon dimanche à vous ma chère.
Clearly, the people who built these magnificent churches believed that "God is in the details." And you've captured some of those details SO well here!Bon dimanche, Genie.
Ah now I'm happy!! It always amazes me when you say something like 'established in 400AD' I mean to say, how amazing is that. I love Perth dearly, but really miss not having tht history. This is a beautiful picture Genie, I can only imagine how old the chandelier is.
I love the details. You always find the best ones.
Less known, but surely as beautyful, and more peaceful!Yes,some buildings are opened ONLY during "patrimony days", that's why we always try to visit something.And that's why there are so much people waiting for visiting!
I would love to see it lit at night. Lovely details.V
C´est formidable!AmitiésElisa, en Argentine
So very beautiful and I do agree with the others, you have an incredible eye for the details and this is a perfect example! Would love to visit there. Hope you've had a lovely weekend, mon amie, and may you have great week ahead!HugsSylvia
Quel travail d'orfèvre, pour arriver à un tel résultat!
I agree with V, they look so much cooler when they're lit.
Genie,I love this chandelier and just bet it is gorgeous when lit! A stunning photo!Kris
C'est la fumée de l'encens qui met un peu de brume sur le côté gauche de la photo ? En tout cas c'est magnifique. Quelle richesse de couleurs, d'ornementation ! Belle composition aussi.
I have just discovered your wonderful blog and have had a lovely browse...many thanks for sharing.
Quite an ornate chandelier. They have similar ones here which they sue on special feast days.
I like this one
This is impressive itself, Genie, but now just think about all the other marvelous details in the building and its fixtures. Whenever I am in a cathedral like this, I am overwhelmed at the thought of all the work, the resources, the talent, the imagination, etc., that go into creating it.
Beautiful. You're definitely seeing lots of cathedrals over there! Nice photos so far.
Beautiful but I would not want to be the one to clean it.
That is where I will go in May, Chatres as well as Fontainbleu.
After spending many hours at the famous Cathedral in Chartres, we decided to wander and see the other churches. This is an active church and it is in grave need of repair. The colors on the walls are astonishing with intricate design as you can see behind the candelabra. The work is ongoing.I have found that you can never judge the beauty of a church from the outside. Certainly, the architecture of some are memorable (Notre Dame, Sacré Coeur, Église Madeleine). However, the ordinary in appearance, like this one, may cause your eyes to pop when you see the inside. Don't pass them by or you will miss something special.Bises,Genie
Divine! I always think that God must have taken a very special care of Paris during the Second World War. London was absolutely destroyed but Paris preserved most of its original beauty...
Oh, wow!Post more images of this, Genie!
Wow! That's quite the chandelier!
