Photographer's Note

One of the main landmarks in the Saint-Jean-Baptiste quarter, a residential
sector for francophone artisans since the 18th century, is the church and
burial ground of St. Matthew. This was a Protestant site which was
consecrated in the last quarter of the 18th century, and presented a nonCatholic enclave at the city gates. Like the Anglican Cathedral, it stands
witness to the 'peaceful' religious confrontation between the conquerors and
the conquered, during the first years following the Paris treaty. A very British
neo-gothic style was chosen for the present church.
