We were in the 8th Arrondissement of Paris at the Eglise de la Madeleine when we took these high definition photos showing a statue of Saint Jean, which was sculpted by Joseph Coupon.

Saint Jean Statue On Eglise De La Madeleine

This first HD photo shows a statue of Saint Jean, which has been positioned on the portico of the Madeleine church, within a niche and this is one of thirty-four different statues of saints that can be viewed between the columns, which were the idea of the architect Jacques-Marie Huve.

Saint Jean Statue By Sculptor Joseph Coupon

Unfortunately there is little information about exactly who this statue has been designed to represent, although we believe this is to be Saint Jean, also known as Saint John the Evangelist, who was born in around 15 AD and is the name that has traditionally been given to the author of the Gospel of John.

You will find that the feast day of Saint John is the third day of Christmastide, being 27th December, and in the roman Catholic church he is referred to as Saint John, Apostle and Evangelist, yet the spelling in French is Saint Jean, rather than John.

Saint Jean Inscription On Statue Base

Here you can see a close up photograph showing the bottom of the statue depicting St Jean with his name inscribed on the pedestal base, along with an eagle, which is one of the creatures referred to in the Revelation to John, and this was sculpted by a man called Joseph Coupon, having been commissioned for this statue by the City of Paris, whereas the others were commissioned by the French State.

North Facade Of Eglise De La Madeleine With Saint Jean Statue

It is at the back of the Eglise de la Madeleine that you will find the statues of the four Evangelists including this one of Saint Jean, located within niches on the portico facade, as you can see from this image showing the entire posterior of this famous church with its corinthian columns constructed in a Neoclassical style based upon a Roman temple.
