VISITE GUIDEE DE L'ORATOIRE CAROLINGIEN

GERMIGNY-DES-PRES - 45

A real treasure, the Carolingian Oratory is one of the oldest churches in France, dating from 806. Known for its exceptional mosaic, it is a witness to the mosaic, it is the witness of the Carolingian period and the work of Theodulphe, close adviser of Charlemagne. Remarkably preserved and unique in France, the mosaic, then hidden under a hidden under a coating, was rediscovered around 1820 thanks to children who were playing under the vault with fragments that had fallen to the ground. Its 130,000 tesserae, silver, gold and coloured, represent an equally rare subject subject: the open Ark of the Covenant surrounded by angels.
