Cathedral of Saint Etienne

Until 1349, the Cathedral of Saint Etienne (St. Stephen) was the cathedral church of Besançon, France. In 1349, it was struck by lightning and it burned to the ground along with countless records in its archives. After the fire, the Church of Saint-Jean, an 11th century church was consecrated as the cathedral for the city.

Pope Leo IX consecrated the high altar of the old Cathedral of St. Etienne in 1050.
