31st August : Our Lady Of Tables

Our Lady Of Tables

Country :

Year : 1189

This French sanctuary appears to have gotten its name from the ex voto tablets hung around it.

It was resorted to from early times; its black wooden statue, enclosed within a large silver one, being so famed for miracles, that a special feast was already established in 1189.

After suffering at the hands of the Huguenots, when the statue disappeared, the church was utterly destroyed at the revolution; but the “cultus” of Notre Dame des Tables was kept alive and carried on in the church of the Jesuits at Montpellier.
