A blend of architectural styles, the Cathedral of Saint-Etienne was constructed over five centuries, explaining the disunity of its design features. When it was built at the end of the 12th century, the cathedral’s meter-wide nave was the widest vaulted structure of its kind in Europe. The wide, Southern Gothic nave is called a “Raymondine. Besides its massive tower, the cathedral has elaborate decorative elements. Splendid stained-glass windows, especially the large rose window, allow ethereal light to filter into the sanctuary. Also worth exploring are the cathedral’s 17 chapels and the beautiful tapestries from the 16th to 18th centuries. For centuries, choir organ music has been an important tradition in Toulouse. A fine example of this cultural heritage is the cathedral’s grandiose organ, which delights audiences with ethereal sounds during the annual Toulouse les Orgues Toulouse International Organ Festival concerts.

As re-established by the Concordat of it included the departments of Haute-Garonne and Ariege, at which time, the archbishop joined to his own the title of Auch, jurisdiction over Auch being given to the Diocese of Agen, also the title of Narbonne, an archdiocese over which jurisdiction went by the Concordat to the Diocese of Carcassonne, and the title of Albi, over which, though formerly an archdiocese, jurisdiction went by the Concordat to the See of Montpellier.
In consequence of the creation of the Archdioceses of Auch and Albi under the Restoration, the Archbishop of Toulouse only styled himself Archbishop of Toulouse and Narbonne, and when the Diocese of Pamiers was created the limits of the Archdiocese were restricted to the Department of Haute-Garonne. In the fourth century it was reckoned the fifteenth town in importance in the empire. In it was taken by Astulph, the Goth, and in under Wallia it became the capital of the Visigothic Kingdom.
In after conquest by Clovis it became Frankish. Legends of more or less recent date claim that it was evangelized by St.

Art Features Jane Avril: Lautrec painted Avril again and again, not just in the black stockings and frou-frou skirts of her day job, but also in the quiet, mysterious dignity of her off-duty life. A new exhibition at the Courtauld Gallery in London explores the friendship between Henri de Toulouse-Lautrec and his muse Avril, which created some of the most famous images in European art. Jane Avril was dancing, twirling, gracefully, lightly, a little madly; pale, skinny, thoroughbred, she twirled and reversed, weightless, fed on flowers; Lautrec was shouting out his admiration.
The poster was an instant hit, and Avril credited it with launching her stage career. It also cemented her friendship with the diminutive Lautrec, who found in her palpable oddness a correspondence to his own physical defects a childhood accident meant that he never grew more than 4ft 6in tall.

The revolution wasn’t quite as dramatic as the development of radio-carbon dating, but many theories which reigned supreme thirty years ago have vanished, swept away by a flood of new data. Unfortunately, little of the new information has made it into popular history. Many articles in Pagan magazines contain almost no accurate information about the “Burning Times”, primarily because we rely so heavily on out-dated research.
Beyond the National Enquirer What was this revolution? Starting in the mid ‘s, historians stopped relying on witch-hunting propaganda and began to base their theories on thorough, systematic studies of all the witch trials in a particular area.

Roped to a sacrificial bull by mobs gathered on the steps of the Capitoline Temple, St. Sernin was dragged down the main street of Toulouse then known as Tolosa to his death. The saint’s body was buried by the local Christian community outside the city walls, and his tomb was eventually covered with a modest wooden oratory. The first shrine on the present site, a little to the north of his original tomb, was built c.
The relics of St. Sernin attracted many pilgrims from the start, but visitors really began to pour in with the rise of the pilgrimage to Santiago de Compostela in the early 11th century.
Anna Prucnal (née le 17 décembre à Varsovie, Pologne) est une actrice et chanteuse française d’origine polonaise.
Early history[ edit ] The Garonne Valley was a central point for trade between the Pyrenees, the Mediterranean and the Atlantic since at least the Iron Age. After the conquest of Gaul , it was developed as a Roman city of Gallia Narbonensis. From this time, Toulouse was the capital of Aquitaine within the Frankish realm. Odo’s victory was a small obstacle to Muslim expansion into Christian Europe , and Muslims finally occupied a large territory including Poitiers.
The Frankish conquest of Septimania followed in the s, and a quasi-independent County of Toulouse emerged within the Carolingian sub-kingdom of Aquitaine by the late 8th century. In the 12th century, consuls took over the running of the town and these proved to be difficult years. In particular, it was a time of religious turmoil. In Toulouse, the Cathars tried to set up a community here, but were routed by Simon de Montfort’s troops. The subsequent arrival of the Inquisition led to a period of religious fervour during which time the Dominican Couvent des Jacobins was founded.
Governed by Raimond II and a group of city nobles, Toulouse’s urban boundaries stretched beyond its walls to the north and as far south as Saint Michel.

Geoffrey of Monmouth by David Nash Ford Geoffrey is traditionally said to have been a Welshman, born somewhere in the region of Monmouth around , though one or both of his parents may have come from Brittany. His father’s name was apparently Arthur, a man who would perhaps have told his son stories of his Royal namesake from an early age. Local tradition makes Geoffrey a Benedictine monk at Monmouth Priory, if not the actual prior. However, this seems to be due to a misidentification with his contemporary, Prior Geoffrey the Short of Monmouth.
Certainly ‘Geoffrey’s Window’ at which he is said to have sat and written his famous works and ‘Geoffrey’s Study’ used as a schoolroom within the Priory Gatehouse are only of late 15th century date. At most it seems that Geoffrey might perhaps have been educated at Monmouth Priory. Some say, erroneously, that his tutor was an uncle named Uchtryd who made him Archdeacon of Llandeilo or Llandaff when he became Bishop of the latter in around A variety of obscure medieval records give only glimpses of the man’s real life.
By his late twenties, Geoffrey certainly seems to have travelled eastwards to become a secular Austin canon at the Collegiate Church of St.
Saturninus Saturnin was one of the most illustrious martyrs France has given to the Church. Among other distinctions, he served as the first bishop of Toulouse. Apparently his fervent preaching brought about many conversions — so many, in fact, that he soon had a church. To reach the church he had to pass before the capitol and its temple, where the pagan priests felt his frequent passing was silencing their oracles. One day they seized him, and on his unshakable refusal to sacrifice to idols, they condemned him to being tied by the feet to a bull which dragged him about the town until the rope broke.

It is the 4th largest city in France and succeeds very well at combining the attractive old centre of the city with modern success in industry, together creating a bustling and lively city. Explore Toulouse France This Way comment: However, describing the individual monuments fails to capture the essence of the city – the cafes and restaurants, the small shady squares you discover Start your visit to Toulouse in the central Place du Capitole, a large open square in the heart of the city with convenient parking underneath the square.
The grand building with eight columns on one side of the square, in the characteristic pink brick of the town, is the Capitole du Toulouse, the head of local government and dating from The buildings of the Place du Capitole date for the most part from the 18th century. As well as the town hall there is the opera on one side and the Place du Capitole and on the other side through the arch is a 16th century donjon dungeon which is now the building of the Toulouse tourist office.
There are several cafes around the square, making it the centre of activity in the city centre. The ‘trademark’ of Toulouse is perhaps the small pretty pink bricks with which many of the houses and important buildings have been constructed, which seem to change colour as the day and the sun passes. Hence the city is often referred to as the Ville Rose pink city.
