Saulge through the years

The Church of Saint Divitien and Sainte Radegonde

XII Century.

It is dedicated to Saint Divitien, a person of whom very little is known, but who no doubt formed part of the entourage of Sainte Radegonde in the XI Century. In 1090 Saulge had a Priory that belonged to the Abbey of Bourg-Dieu at Deols (Indre). We don't know whether the Priory was the old chapel that is now a private dwelling or the actual parish church. The church has had many alterations over the years and the nave would have originally been timbered. The vaulted ceiling is more modern. The chancel is Gothic. The octagonal bell tower is decorated with arches but they are partly hidden by the higher roof that was added in the XIX century.
