Exhibition of moment

Permanent Exhibition















In 1842, the Foreign Missions Seminary at the rue du Bac, received the remains of Pierre Borie, killed 4 years earlier in Vietnam. This event aroused much emotion, interest and fervor : Pierre Borie had left the seminary in 1830; the circumstances of his death were well-known and had been commented on for a long time. A cult formed around the martyr’s reliquary: it was placed in a room in an upper floor, and the habit was taken to spend a few moments each day in this place. It became a rite in the seminary. Come discover it in greater detail.
