Saint-Marcouf - Saint-Marcouf

Saint-Marcouf - Saint-Marcouf
"Saint-Marcouf" is the parish church of Saint-Marcouf, a small village near the Utah Beach, the westernmost of the landing beaches during the D-Day invasion of Normandy.

The church was erected within the 11th century, but got enlarged and altered about 200 years later. The church is dedicated to Saint Marcouf, a Bayeux-born missionary, who founded the abbey of de Nanteuil (aka "Nantus"), that existed upto about 1500 on a small island just off the coast and named today "Îles Saint-Marcouf". The Saint died on the island in 588. During medieval times Saint Marcouf was best known for the healing of scrofula.

There are many corbels under the roof Saint-Marcouf.

Maybe what was to be seen on the previous corbel was not a "megaphallus". But here clearly is one! Another "Sweyn Forkbeard"? He is carried by two companions. They act like ambulancemen. "Forkbeard´s" hands can be seen on their shoulders
