A little history of Saint-Sébastien church in Nancy

Parish church Saint-Sébastien church in Nancy

Architect Nicolas Jennesson raised this church in 1731.

The façade is composed of Doric order on the door and Ionic order above. Low-reliefs represent the Virgin Mary and Jesus Christ with angels. We also can see saint Nicolas resurrecting children (saint Nicolas is Lorraine’s patron saint)... We also have saint Charles Borromée, a rope against his neck. All these sculptures were made by Joseph-Dieudonné Pierre, from Nancy. The clock (1841) replaced Lorraine blazon hammered during the French Revolution... Don’t forget the two statues: duke Leopold with a Roman suit and saint Sébastien, by Victor Huel.
