Abbey Church Of St. Ouen, 2

More pix from Rouen's 14th century abbey church of St. Ouen...

Chancel ceiling

Elevation, windows and light

A sampling of the windows, mostly saints and
biblical figures



In the chevet

One of the big roses



And another

Limestone blocks, loaded with flint...Normandy

In the park outside, a statue of the Viking Rollo,
the original Duke of Normandy

A few feet away, a huge runestone, a gift from the people of
Copenhagen to the people of Rouen; Viking solidarity

Those windows are truly amazing.
