Caption
Funerary statue of Pierre Jeannin (16th century) near the entrance to the chapter house. His wisdom saved Burgundy from the massacres of St. Bartholomew's Day on August 24, 1572. He insisted on waiting for written instructions, declaring, "One should never be in a hurry to obey the King's orders if the King loses his temper."
