P301 - France - St. Stephen's Cathedral in Metz

St. Stephen's Cathedral, Metz, France

Metz Cathedral or St. Stephen's Cathedral in Metz (Cathédrale Saint-Étienne de Metz), in the département of Moselle, France, is the seat of the Bishop of Metz. It was formed in the 14th century by joining together two churches: the nave of Saint-Etienne, built in the 13th century, was attached to the north side of an older Romanesque church. It is found in the heart of the city, on the Place d'Armes, where it provides a focal point for the "centre ville".

In the 15th century, a transept and a choir were added. This nave is the third highest in France with its 41.41 meters. Only Beauvais Cathedral and Amiens Cathedral are higher.

梅斯大教堂(Metz Cathedral)或者圣艾蒂安大教堂(St. Etienne's Cathedral)座落于法国的梅斯市,是一座由黄色砂岩建造的哥特式建筑。它也是梅斯主教的主教坐堂。这座建于1220年-1380年的大教堂实际上是由两座教堂合并而成的:建于13世纪的圣艾蒂安教堂的中殿被附加在一座更老的罗马式教堂的北面。这座教堂位于城市中心,在"Place D'Armes"旁边。15世纪,十字翼部和唱诗席建成。教堂的中殿是法国第三高(41.41米),紧次于博韦大教堂和亚眠大教堂。

教堂的彩绘玻璃由著名匠人 Hermann de Munster 和 Valentin Bousch(14和16世纪),以及画家马克·夏卡尔和 Roger Bissière(20世纪)制作。
