Finally, you can see here more pictures of Saint-Séverin, a church I like a lot, as you can see! Until 1790 Saint-Severin was the seat of the southern archdeaconry of the pre-revolutionary diocese of Paris. In the late nineteenth century the writer Joris-Karl Huysmans frequented and popularised the church. In 1956 it was the scene of a demonstration by Christian conscripts against the war in Algeria. In the years leading up to the Second Vatican Council Saint-Severin was known for the style of its worship arising from the Liturgical Movement.

Finalmente aquí puedes ver más fotos de Saint-Séverin, ˇuna iglesia que ves que me encanta! Hasta 1790 Saint-Séverin era la sede del archidiaconado de la Diócesis de París antes de la Revolución. Al final del siglo XIX el escritor Joris-Karl Huysmans frecuentó y popularizó esta iglesia. En 1956 éste fue el lugar de una protesta de reclutas católicos contra la guerra de Argelia. En los ańos que siguieron al Concilio Vaticano II Saint-Séverin se dio a conocer por su culto surgido del Movimiento Litúrgico.
