13th century Reliefs

13th century Reliefs

Though the south portal is heavily restored and the west completely replaced the north portal of Metz Cathedral retains it's authentic medieval sculpture, if only in the much simpler form of reliefs set above simulated swags of drapery (a device also used inside the cathedral). Biblical scenes are complemented by ornamental panels filled with small figures of bizarre creatures.

The Cathedrale St Etienne in Metz is one of the most impressive gothic cathedrals in France and also distinguished by being one of the tallest. It dates mainly from the 13th century but has been added to much since.

Externally it is the bulk of the building and the sheer height of it's clerestorey windows (so much of the building appears to be glass) that impresses most. The two towers are relatively small (and oddly positioned part way down the nave instead of the normal facade arrangement) but they are most graceful structures (the northern one only completed in the 19th century). The portals are rich with sculpture but are almost entirely 19th century work (the west porch being the largest, but normal entrance is by a secondary and no less richly adorned portal at the south west corner of the nave).

Inside the height of the vaults is breathtaking, the narrowness of the interior accentuating the effect. The arcades are somewhat low in proportion to the enormous areas of clerestorey glazing that appears to take up at least half of the wall space. The south side is enlivened by two projecting chapels with apses accessed from the aisle.

The outstanding feature of the cathedral is it's stained glass, most of it late medieval including great swathes of early 16th century work by Valentin Bousch. More famous still however are the more recent 20th century contributions to the glazing (following the loss of some 19th century glass in World War II) including three rich windows by Marc Chagall and a set of semi abstract pieces by Jacques Villon.
