Notre-Dame de Fourvière Necklace

Trésor Bleu Exclusive

Item no. MS03084

Lyon, France, Basilica of ND de Fourvière, c. 1941 - RARE

.5 inches in diameter

Beautifully preserved dainty medal with two toned front, blank on reverse, Our Lady of Fourvière. Beautiful teal blue color, blank on reverse.  From the earliest Antiquity, the hill of Fourvière – the praying hill – is the centre of the spiritual and cultural life in Lyon. It is in Fourvière that the early Christians expressed their faith, placing themselves under the protection of Mary from the beginning.

Trésors blue are tiny pieces of French art and devotion.  Also known as Médailles De Pelerinage" or "Medals of Pilgrimage," these little medals have had voyages from another generation, another life, another country.  The deep "ultramarine" blue is the sacred color of Mary, representing truth, hope, and faith since 200 AD. People of faith still undertake pilgrimages as a way of deepening their religious devotion, seeking miracles, spiritual healing, forgiveness, or for the journey itself.  The experience is not solely about reaching the end, it is about what is endured, enjoyed, and learned along the way.
