Église Abbatiale Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes (Dennis Aubrey)

The church of Saint Jouin de Marnes is known as the Vézelay Poitevin, a tribute to its importance and beauty. It was named after a 4th century hermit named Jovinus from Mouterre-Silly near Loudun. 1,081 more words

Architecture

Gordon C. Stewart reblogged this on VIEWS from the EDGE and commented:

Via Lucis Photography of Religious Architecture is a Views from the Edge favorite because of its ability to synthesize art, history, theology, and social commentary centering on the deeper things of the human spirit and the awe of Gothic and Romanesque architecture. In the midst of this post, Dennis Aubrey draws attention to the lion which appears to be spewing foliage. I proposed to Dennis that perhaps the lion is "eating straw like the ox" in Isaiah 11 and 65, Isaiah's vision of the peaceable kingdom, an interpretation that seems to go well with the church's sculptural rendering Jesus' Parable of the Last Judgment in Matthew 25. Église Abbatiale Saint-Jouin-de-Marnes's Last Judgment scene suggests an artistic interpretation that eliminates the divide between sheep (saved) and goats (damned), a pictorial witness to the final judgment as universal forgiveness and salvation.
