About the Author

Peggy Shannon has spent the past six years researching and photographing notable and lesser-known churches in Paris. During thousands of hours on the ground in the City of Light, she has interviewed and developed close relationships with historians, city administrators, clergy, academics and tour guides. These relationships have given her exceptional access to the little-known historical details and fascinating behind-the-scenes information that inform the texts accompanying her photographs. Shannon holds a B.A. degree in psychology and religion from the Santa Fe College, and studied folklore and arts administration in the Master’s Program at Indiana University. She divides her time between Paris, France, Cincinnati, Ohio and Nova Scotia.


...a gorgeous compendium of 37 houses of worship across the French capital....Accompanying the text are Shannon's ravishing photos of dazzling stained-glass windows, imposing stonework, intricate wood carvings, and intriguing details such as altarpieces, statues, relics, and paintings. Whether religious or not, readers can't help but feel the majesty and the mystery of these spaces that put the holy in holy moly.-- ""
