Le groupe épiscopal de Bordeaux (Gironde)

Abstract : During the road works for the tram at Bordeaux, an apse with cut-off corners was discovered near the cathedral Saint-André, at the south-east angle of the Roman wall, built around 280 AD. The plan and size of the building, and the rich ornamentation allow to see in this building a major construction of Burdigala built at the end of the 4th c. It must be the first cathedral established inside a bishopric buried underneath the cathedral. With Saint-Seurin basilica and the nearby Sainte-Marie basilica, this impressive monument makes clear the early Christian origins of Bordeaux.
