Statue of Anne Gueniot
Caption
Funerary statue of Anne Gueniot (16th century), wife of Pierre Jeannin, near the entrance to the chapter house. Jeannin's 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."
