Pencran Church came next on a very grey and wet morning. Apparently there has been a religious building on the site since the 14C. The current Church of Notre Dame, Pencran, dates from the 1500s. The Calvary of 1521 at the entrance was startling against the grey sky.
I could have spent a long time trying to capture the details, and trying to understand the imagery. Isn’t this a beautiful figure of Mary Magdalene at the foot of the cross?
The Ossuary of 1594 is now privately owned by the Rosmorduc Family
The South Porch dates to 1553, and the cows here are rather less animated and interested than those at La Martyre – altogether a more formalised depiction of the Nativity. Inside, the Apostles are lined up on either side of the entrance.
At one side of the High Altar a rather beautiful 16C Descent from the Cross.
The stained glass looked contemporary and I liked it.
It was not a building which held me but as always there were details which were fascinating, and beautiful.
