Two churches in the Yonne (Dennis Aubrey)


We said in our last post that we would show the photograph of the Église Saint-Jacques-le-Majeur in Asquins with the Basilique Sainte Madeleine in Vézelay in the distance.  Here we see the shot from the north, the direction from which the pilgrims would approach the town of Asquins and proceed to Vézelay.

What a sight it must have been for the pilgrims to approach Vézelay from the north and to make their way around and up the hill to Sainte Madeleine. On a bright spring day in 2014, we could almost hear the echoes of pilgrim-song across the centuries.
