Eglise de la Sorbonne, à Paris (5e arrondissement).The Paris University of Theology was based in the Sorbonne until the French Revolution. It was in the Sorbonne that the very first book was printed in France (the Espitolarum Liber by Gasparin de Bergame, 1470). Cardinal Richelieu (1585-1642) modernized and extended the buildings; his tomb, sculpted by Girardon, is located underneath the chapel of the Sorbonne.
