Saint Jean De Chrisostome Statue Eglise Madeleine

This first HD photo shows a statue located within a niche on the facade of the Madeleine Church, and depicting Saint Jean de Chrisostome, which in English is spelt John Chrysostom, this was produced in 1840 by Jean Francois Gechter.

Saint Jean De Chrisostome Statue By Jean Francois Gechter

Now Saint John Chrysostom was the Archbishop of Constantinople recognised as an early church father known for his preaching, teaching and for his public speaking, and was venerated as a saint shortly after he passed away in 407.

In the Roman Catholic church where he is recognised as a Doctor of the church, which in Latin generally means teacher, his feast day is 14th September, and virtually all statues depicting Saint John Chrysostom have him holding a book or the bible, which you can see in this close up photograph.

St Jean Chrisostome Inscription On Pedestal

Here you can see the inscription of the name St Jean Chrisostome, which is written in French on the pedestal base of the statue, and as we mentioned earlier, this was sculpted by Jean Francois Theodore Gechter, who was born in Paris in 1796, studying to become a French sculptor under people such as Francois Joseph Bosio.

Jean Francois Theodore Gechter first started to present his works at the Paris Salons from 1824, and working right up until he passed away in 1844, many of his statues can be seen within museums such as The Louvre, yet his most recognised work is probably for the tourist attraction of the fountains within the Place de la Concorde.

West Facade Eglise Madeleine Saint Jean Chrisostome Statue

But getting back to this statue of Saint Jean de Chrisostome, as you can see from this image, it is located on the portico of the Eglise de la Madeleine, and is one of thirty-four statues of saints portrayed on the facades that can be seen from in between the columns of this church, which was originally meant to be a temple.
