Keys to History

The monument in memory of Bishop Ignace Bourget was unveiled on June 24, 1903, in front of the replica of St. Peter's Basilica in Rome, which he had had built. A bas-relief shows the bishop studying the plans for the building. Two allegorical statues represent Religion and Charity. The sculptures and bas-reliefs were created by Louis-Philippe Hébert.
