Abbey Church Of St. Ouen, 2

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
















Chancel ceiling




















Elevation, windows and light




















A sampling of the windows, mostly saints and
biblical figures





















Thus




















Thus




















In the chevet
















One of the big roses
















More
















More
















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
