Author of Angels of Paris - An Architectural Tour through the History of Paris
The archangel Gabriel - patron saint of communication - appears in the Hebrew Bible twice to Daniel, and in the Book of Luke, to Zacharias, with the startling news that his aged wife will soon give birth to John the Baptist. Here in a niche on the southeast facade of the Madeleine Church, Francisque-Joseph Duret interprets Gabriel in his role as the angel of the Annunciation, wearing a long gown and holding a lily, symbol of Mary’s purity. Sculpted in 1843, the statue has suffered the travails of time and of pollution, but is soon to be restored by the City of Paris.
Church of the Madeleine, Place de la Madeleine, 8th arrondissement (Metro: Madeleine)
