Oratoire Carolingien

GERMIGNY-DES-PRES

Descriptive

Built in approximatley 800 AD, the oratory was part of a luxury Carolingian villa built by Theodulf, a leading intellectual who contributed to the Carolingian Renaissance, and special assistant to Charlemagne. The church contains a Carolingian mosaic made up of 130,000 small glass cubes. It is the only creation of its kind in France, on the one hand due to its incredible preservation having been only slightly altered during the restoration of the church, and on the other hand, because of its unique representation: an open Ark of the Covenant surrounded by angels.
