History of the St Gervais et St Protais, Paris.


The church of St Gervais and St Protais is one of the oldest in Paris, with records showing its existence in the 4th century.


Dedicated to Gervasius and Protasius, the church’s dedication has been corrupted over the centuries to St Gervais and St Protais.


The present church was begun in the Gothic style in 1494, the chapels of the apse were finished in 1530.


The misericords, which date from 1556 are lucky survivals - Most Parisian churches were denuded of their carving (and I feel most passionately about their misericords) during the fuel shortage brought about by the siege of Paris, the end result was that the misericords were removed and burnt.  In addition to the 21 sixteenth century misericords, there are 21, 17th century misericords which probably date to the time of the new doorway in around 1620.


 The transept was completed in 1578. The doorway of the church was built in 1616-1620 by Claude Monnard in the classical style. Between 1600 and 1628, a second row of chapels was built on the north side including the golden chapel ornamented with painted woodwork.

The facade presents an exceptionnal feature, with column of the 3 orders : doric at the ground floor, ionic at the second floor, corinthian at the third floor.

On 29 March 1918, a German shell, fired by the long-range "Paris Gun", fell on the church, killing 88 people and wounding 68 others; the explosion collapsed the roof when a Good Friday service was in progress. This was the worst single incident involving a loss of civilian lives during the German bombardment of Paris in 1918.


There does not appear as of September 2010 to be an official  website.
