On the walls of many churches in the département Eure in France are marks against the evil eye and other carvings, especially different kinds of crosses.
The roman church Saint-Aubin of Boisney was built in the 12th century. It is consecrated to Albinus of Angers (468/469-550). The church is classified as Monument historique since 1862. I found one mark on the outside wall of the church that looked similar to those in Saint-Georges-du-Vièvre (where my photos were spoiled).
Notre-Dame-d’Épine ist a village in the département Eure in France.
The church Notre-Dame in Notre-Dame-d’Épine was built in the 16th century. On the outer western wall are rests of a “litre funéraire”. A litre funéraire is a black band on the in- or outside of French churches, on which deceases of noble people related to the town are noted by paintings of their armorial bearings.
This church is full of carvings, especially crosses.
L’Épine is a town in the département Marne, in the region Champagne-Ardenne in the northeast of France. In L’Épine stands a basilica Notre-Dame and due to a photo on Wikimedia Commons, that was sorted in the wrong category, I saw that the basilica shows similar carvings, “normal” crosses and some kind of patriarchal cross.
Morsan is a village in the département Eure in the Haute-Normandie in France. Chevalier Philémon Le Sens, baron de Morsan, belonged to the court of Henry IV of France and was governor of Bernay. Philémon Le Sens built himself a castle in Morsan. Florian-Gaston Le Sens was the last marquis de Morsan, he died in 1929. In World War II the German army used the castle as office.
The stables of the castle were built between 1650 and 1750. It is possible that the southwesternmost stable was used as a chapel. Atm it is a sheepbarn. There are some marks on the outer walls of that barn, that look just like those on churches and this could be an evidence for the “chapel-theory”.
