Renaissance stained-glass windows
A first church dedicated to the Virgin, in Renaissance architecture, was built in Épernay between 1520 and 1550. Deteriorated over time, it partially collapsed in 1824. Its stained-glass windows were recovered, restored, and now adorn Notre-Dame Church in Épernay, built straddling the 19th and 20th centuries. They describe periods of the lives of Saint Remigius, Saint Augustine, and the Virgin Mary. Other stained-glass windows depict the Passion, the Creation, and a glass roof shows the life of Noah along with scenes of harvests. Inside the church, an organ listed as a Historical Monument comes from the old Saint-Martin Church.
