Full text: Beauties of continental architecture

On occasion of the external view of the Church of St. Sauve, we said a few 
words, as well of the town itself, as of the church, of which we here give an 
internal view. It is not richly ornamented, like the splendid edifices at Rouen, 
St. Omer, and other places; but its architecture is in a more severe and simple, 
and even rude style, which however produces a good effect. With respect to the 
name of the town, which has been called in Latin Monstrolium and Monasteriolum, 
there is every appearance of its being derived from the Latin Monasterium, or 
Monasteriolum; for there is no reason to believe, as some have fancied, that 
Montreuil signifies Mont Royal. We may add, that there have been persons so 
fond of fables, that they would have us believe that the name of Montreuil was 
given to this town, because a monster, with only one eye, was found there. 
The two Vignettes represent portions of houses, as examples of the style of 
numerous edifices in this country.
