Stephen and St. croix to the Fourth and Sixteenth century. These two churches, with the Cathedral of St. John, formed the group, bishop of Lyon (one of the first christian communities.)

You can see in this garden, a baptistery, reflecting a liturgical practice of early christianity... (the one to be baptized was totally immersed for the occasion. ) Ph : Marc de Meilhan Butcher.
