Petit Futé's opinion on THE MUSEUM OF RELIGIOUS ART

Vintage plate 2020

Located in the former State Hall of Velay - on the second floor of the Mâchicis building - the Museum of Religious Art was created in 1895 by Aimé and Louis Giron. This vast room preserves sculptures, paintings and goldsmiths. We will notice the two imposing warriors of the Thebaine Legion and several bas-reliefs. To see also, the sacristy of the cathedral which houses a very beautiful treasure whose most precious piece is the famous Bible of Theodulfe, remarkable manuscript performed in 794-798 by Benedictine monks. There are also a head of Christ in ciselated and golden copper, various reliquaries, pieces of goldsmith and ornaments. There are also an ancient altar retable, including a pietà of the fifteenth century, one of the most beautiful primitives in Auvergne, and various other pieces of sculpture, including a beautiful Christ in ivory of the eighteenth century, placed in a beautiful framework.
