St. Sernin in Toulouse, France
St. Sernin is the largest Romanesque church, built in Toulouse, France for the Augustinian canons from foundations that date to1060. Soon after the high altar was dedicated on May 24, 1096, Pope Urban II credited the construction to Bishop Petrus Rogerius but it is more likely that it was undertaken when Bishop Izarn introduced clerical reforms to Toulouse around 1073. A hospice was founded there before 1080 by Count William II and his wife Mathilda, and was entrusted to Raymond Gairard, a canon of St. Sernin, who is credited with building the body of the church before his death in 1118. St. Sernin combines the monastic and pilgrimage features introduced early in the 11th century by being the first synthesis of the elements that would become familiar in urban Gothic churches of the Middle Ages.
