Narthex Christ

This gathering place is a fine example of Byzantine style art and architecture. The lower wall is buff marble to symbolize earth. The mosaic panels above are paved with a series of scenes about the life of Saint Louis IX, King of France (1214-1270), patron saint of the city. The barrel vaulted ceiling  is covered by a swirling  green vine symbolic of Christ, who is also portrayed in the central mosaic as “Teacher” or “Pantocrator”.
