The Chapel of St. Julian of the Minstrels

There was only one neighborhood in Paris where minstrels were allowed to live, so they built a little chapel and a hospital there. The chapel was dedicated to St. Julian (patron of innkeepers and hospitality) and St. Genesius (patron of actors and performers).

There’s an old book about the chapel here at, with a nice picture as the frontispiece.
