France: Another Historic Church Destroyed

The 15th century fortified Saint-Christophe church of Voutezac, Southern France, was heavily damaged by a January 19/20 fire.

While the blaze was raging in the roof, the fire brigade saved the partly charred tabernacle, candleholders, paintings, a dozen statues, the Way of the Cross, and the Nativity Scene. The collapse of the roof caused enormous damage.

The famous 17th century Baroque altarpiece, a historical monument, was badly damaged, the central canvas, representing Christ on the Cross, was destroyed. The origin of the fire is still unknown.


Amazing how this rash of fires started after the flood of Muslim immigrants into Europe. Coincidence, to be sure....
