Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas, Paris

Gittard's last Parisian work was the church of Saint-Jacques-du-Haut-Pas (1674–85), where he tried to impose some of his boldest formulae on Jansenist patrons. The church has a belltower that provides a great deal of interior light, even as it renders the design complex.

The photo shows the nave.
