Paris has a sacred history that goes beyond religion, and its legendary places of worship are truly its crown jewels. Organized by the major geographical sections of the city, this illustrated guide introduces the historic religious sites of the City of Light, from the magnificent towers of Notre-Dame and the sweeping arches of the Grand Mosque to the serenity of Saint-Julien-le-Pauvre. Susan Cahill also shares the rich history of the sites, tracing their connections to Joan of Arc, Simone Weil, Eugene Delacroix, and Vincent Van Gogh.
"This useful guidebook seamlessly weaves together art, literature, music, and history, and it makes a great armchair read for those who can't tread Paris' boulevards."—Booklist
