Sabbatical Art Pilgrimage: Latest ArtWay report

My latest Church of the Month report for ArtWay focuses on Église de Saint-Paul à Grange-Canal in Geneva. 'The manifesto for the renaissance of modern sacred art is written in stone, glass, and paint at Saint-Paul à Grange-Canal in the upmarket municipality of Cologny in Geneva, Switzerland. Cologny is well known for having been visited by Lord Byron, Mary Shelley, Percy Bysshe Shelley, John William Polidori, and other friends in the summer of 1816, a trip that spawned the development of the classic talesFrankenstein and “The Vampyre.”

Located at the southern end of Cologny at the dead end of the Avenue de Saint-Paul, the church isn’t something one stumbles upon; it has to be deliberately sought out—and great beauty awaits those who do.'

This Church of the Month report follows on from others about Aylesford Priory, Canterbury Cathedral, Chapel of St. Thérèse of the Child Jesus and the Holy Face, Hem, Chelmsford Cathedral, Lumen, Notre Dame du Léman, Notre-Dame de Toute Grâce, Plateau d’Assy, Romont, Sint Martinuskerk Latem, St Aidan of Lindisfarne, St Alban RomfordSt. Andrew Bobola Polish RC Church and St Mary the Virgin, Downe, as well as earlier reports of visits to sites associated with Marian Bohusz-Szyszko, Marc Chagall, Jean Cocteau, Antoni Gaudi and Henri Matisse.
