This chapter explains how landscape and its history influenced the location of pagan and Christian religious places in late antique Paris (4th through 5th centuries). Considerations of ethnicity, gender, and class guided the location, creation, and use of religious architecture along with the availability of sites and materials and formal doctrines. Christian missionaries exploited Paris’s Roman past to locate and build new kinds of religious places attractive to natives.

Keywords:   ethnicity, gender, class, location, creation, religious architecture, Christian missionaries, Paris
