The church of Saint-Etienne-du-Mont originated in the abbey of Sainte-Genevieve, where the eponymous saint had been buried in the 6th century. In 1222, Pope Honorius III authorized the establishment of an autonomous church, which was devoted this time to St Etienne, then the patron saint of the old cathedral of Paris. It was enlarged in 1328, but a complete reconstruction became necessary from the 15th century.The choir of flamboyant Gothic, was completed in 1537
Today the church is famous for the choir screen of finely carved stone by Father Biard (1545) (the latter existing in Paris). (wikipedia)
