Saint Hilaire De Poitiers Statue On Eglise De La Madeleine

This first HD photo shows a statue called Saint Hilaire, also referred to as Saint Hilaire de Poitiers, which in English is spelt Saint Hilary of Poitiers, and born around the year 310 he is classed as a Doctor of the Church and was once the Bishop of Poitiers.

Saint Hilaire De Poitiers Statue By Jean Pierre Victor Huguenin

Here you can see a close up of the Saint Hilary of Poitiers statue, which was produced by Jean Pierre Victor Huguenin who was born in 1802 and entered the Ecole des Beaux Arts under Jules Ramey studying to become a French sculptor, and he sculpted many statues and busts that can be seen at tourist attractions such as the Jardin du Luxembourg and Chateau de Versailles, plus this one on the Madeleine Church.

Jean Pierre Victor Huguenin also worked for statues to adorn other places in France such as the Le Mans Cathedral, but many of his works are now held within the Museum of Fine Arts in Dole, which is the town where he was born.

Saint Hilaire De Poitiers Inscription On Statue Pedestal

But this image shows the pedestal base of the statue with the name Saint Hilaire inscribed on it, and in the Roman Calendar his feast day is 13th January, although in the past this was the 14th January, but he is classed as a 4th century pre-eminent Latin writer whose works were influential for several centuries, and it was Pope Pius IX who formally recognised Sainty Hilary of Poitiers as a Doctor of the Church in 1851.

East Facade Of Eglise De La Madeleine With Saint Hilaire De Poitiers Statue

So this photograph shows the location of the Sainty Hilary statue positioned within a niche on the portico facade of the Eglise de la Madeleine, which can be seen on the eastern side of the church when looking past the recognisable columns of what was originally designed to be a temple before being changed to its currant status of a Roman Catholic church.
