Église Saint-Étienne de Lille

The church of Saint-Etienne, a former Jesuit college chapel, now converted into a military hospital, when the seventeenth or eighteenth th century. The vault of the nave rests on pilasters of the Corinthian order, and those on the low sides of the pilasters of the Ionic order. In the choir, decorated with murals, is seen a painting of Victor Mottez, the Martyrdom of St. Stephen, above the altar.
