Church St-Christophe from Mesnard la Barotiere

The short quote that follows is Jean-Michel Cauneau who was kind enough to put online a comprehensive study on the subject of Church of MESNARD-LA-BAROTIERE and the wall painting that made his reputation specifically's.

The lordship of Barroteria appears, for the first time in a copy of a Charter, datable to 1149 of the Abbey of the Grainetiere, located 7 km East-: the land was then held by guards of the Abbey, the Goyas (GOELLVS) also Lords of Mouchamps, Vendrennes and Beaurepaire, neighbouring districts of the Barotiere. According to a piece of the CARTULARY of Marmoutiers, the Goyas took part in the construction of the Church of St-Germainde Prinçay (Vendée) in the 11th century. Certainly, there is nothing to say that this family is also at the origin of the old church of Mesnard-la-Barotiere, but the review of the cadastre of 1838, kept at the Town Hall, suggests that the village, as well as the locality the Guiderie are born on a zone of clearing old, identifiable by the narrowness of the concentric plots, very different from the rest of the municipality.

In fact, as most of the parishes poitevines, wait said Puglia Grand Gauthier, list of profits before 1306 by the Bishop of Poitiers before the split of his diocese for the benefit of Maillezais and Luzon. Found on this list the first mention of the ecclesia Barroteria parrochialis and we learn that the collation of the cure belongs of right to the Bishop (of dono episcopi). However, conclude that the Church was founded on the initiative of a Bishop of Poitiers at the time of first clearing, or under the influence of a strong House, falls under the assumption. Other currently inventoried sources are:

-a bubble of 1385 preserved at the Vatican, marking snack for the benefit of the cure by the Pope of the Schism, Pope Clement VII, probably in disorders of the hundred years war.

-a record of the visit in 1534 by the vicar general of Luzon, which, incidentally, gives the name of the parish: St Kitts of the Barotiere.

-papers mill, preserved since 1620 in the presbytery.

They have been the subject of a classification and a summary inventory by the Director of the Diocesan archives. We will return to these documents which allow to date a number of elements.The Church St-Christophe of the Barotiere, as it currently stands in our eyes, is not the result of an initial draft: is a "patchwork" of successive ideas, crafts sometimes, just like cathedrals. But everything has taken its place for the service of all. Miracle and mystery of time...
