Tem­ple de la Fus­terie

Timeless Travels Magazine - - SWITZERLAND -

The Tem­ple de la Fus­terie was the first new place of wor­ship to be es­tab­lished af­ter the Re­for­ma­tion. Built be­tween 1713-1715, it was orig­i­nally known as the ‘Tem­ple neuf ’ or ‘New Church’.

Be­fore this was built, ser­vices were held in the Cathe­dral or other for­mer Catholic Churches of St. Ger­vais and La Madeleine, which were re­con­fig­ured ap­pro­pri­ately. The new church was needed af­ter the in­flux of refugees.
