Latin Dedication, Eglise de la Madeleine, Paris
This first HD photo shows the Latin Dedication, which reads DOM. SVB. INVOCATS. MAR. MAGDALENAE, and when this is translated into English, it reads; To the almighty and very great God, under the invocation of Saint Mary Magdalene, which makes you want to discover the patron saint of this church in Paris.
Eglise de la Madeleine pediment Latin Dedication
Now here you can see the Latin Dedication below the pediment known as The Last Judgement, which was sculpted by Henri Lemaire, and although the construction of the Eglise de la Madeleine was completed in 1837, it was not until 1842 that the building was finally consecrated as a church dedicated to Mary Magdalene as King Louis XVIII had envisioned.
