Église St-Etienne-du-Mont, located near the Pantheon in the 5th arrondissement, stands on the site of an abbey founded by Clovis and later dedicated to St. Geneviève, the patroness of Paris. The interior of St-Etienne-du-Mont is Gothic, an unusual style for a 16th-century church. Building began in 1492 and was plagued by delays until the church was finally finished in 1626. Besides the patroness of Paris, such men as Pascal and Racine were entombed here. St. Geneviève's tomb was destroyed during the Revolution, but the stone on which her coffin rested was discovered later, and her relics were gathered for a place of honor at St-Etienne. The church possesses a remarkable early-16th-century rood screen: Crossing the nave with spiral staircases on either side, it's unique in Paris and beloved by many. Another treasure is a wood pulpit, held up by Samson, clutching a bone in one hand, with a slain lion at his feet. The fourth chapel on the right when you enter contains impressive 16th-century stained glass.
