Photo: Eglise St Trophime Doorway Provence

The magnificent doorway of Eglise St-Trophime in Place de la Republique, Arles in Provence, France in Europe.

Eglise St-Trophime overlooks the busy Place de La Republique in the Old Town of Arles in Provence, France. Originally built by St Hilaire in the 5th century Eglise St-Trophime was named after an early 3rd century bishop of Arles - St Trophimus.When rebuilding took place in the 11th and 12th centuries the Eglise St Trophime was greatly enhanced by the beautiful Provencal Romanesque doorway of the west entrance. The Eglise St-Trophime doorway in Arles, France is full of Christian symbols and has the design of a Roman triumphal arch, a favourite form used in Provence in the 12th century.The semi-circular facade (the Tympanum) above the Eglise St-Trophime doorway depicts Jesus surrounded by symbolic forms of Matthew (winged man), Mark (winged lion), Luke (ox) and John (eagle). Below this scene there are the twelve apostles, and a choir of thirty-six angels.The overall theme of this beautiful Eglise St Trophime doorway in Arles is the promise of Judgment Day, and this depiction is one of the best in all of France. ... continue below the picture...
