English St Paul's, Covent Garden

St Paul's Church is a church located in Bedford Street, Covent Garden, London, WC2E 9ED. It was designed by Inigo Jones as part of a commission for the 4th Earl of Bedford in 1631 to create "houses and buildings fit for the habitations of Gentlemen and men of ability". As well as being the parish church of Covent Garden, the church has gained the nickname of "the actors' church" by a long association with the theatre community.

Completed in 1633, St Paul's was the first entirely new church to be built in London since the Reformation. Its design and the layout of the square have been attributed to Inigo Jones since the 17th century, although firm documentary evidence is lacking. According to an often repeated story, recorded by Horace Walpole, Lord Bedford asked Jones to design a simple church "not much better than a barn", to which the architect replied "Then you shall have the handsomest barn in England".

The building is described by Sir John Summerson as "a study in the strictly Vitruvian Tuscan Order" and "almost an archaeological exercise". The description of a Tuscan or Etruscan-style temple by Vitruvius, which Jones closely follows in this building, reflects the early forms of Roman temple, which essentially continued Etruscan architecture, though quite what Vitruvius intended by his account has divided modern scholars. It has been seen as a work of deliberate primitivism: the Tuscan order is associated by Palladio with agricultural buildings.The temple front with a portico on the square has never in fact been the main entrance, although this may have been Jones's first intention. The altar lies behind this wall, and the entrance is at the far end to this. The stone facing of this facade is also later; originally it was apparently brick with stucco. The other sides of the building remain brick, with details in stone. The triangular pediments at both ends are in wood.

Italian Chiesa di San Paolo (Covent Garden)

La chiesa di San Paolo è una chiesa locata a Bedford Street, Covent Garden, Londra, WC2E 9ED. Venne progettata da Inigo Jones come parte di una commissione fattagli dal IV conte di Bedford nel 1631 per creare "case ed edifici adatti ad abitazioni di gentiluomini e uomini di abilità". Oltre ad essere parrocchia del Covent Garden, alla chiesa venne affibbiato il soprannome di "chiesa degli attori" per via dell'associazione con la comunità del teatro.

Completata nel 1633, fu la prima chiesa interamente nuova costruita a Londra dalla Riforma. Il suo progetto è stato attribuito a Inigo Jones anche se mancano prove documentarie certe. Secondo una storia spesso ripetuta, registrata da Horace Walpole, Lord Bedford chiese a Jones di progettare un chiesa semplice "non molto migliore di un granaio", a cui l'architetto rispose "Allora avrai il fienile più bello d'Inghilterra".Sir John Summerson descrisse l'edificio come "uno studio nell'ordine toscano rigorosamente vitruviano" e "quasi un esercizio archeologico". La descrizione di un tempio in stile toscano o etrusco fatta da Vitruvio, che Jones seguì in maniera completa in questo edificio, riflette le prime forme del tempio romano, che era una continuazione dell'architettura etrusca, benché ciò che Vitruvio intendesse con il suo racconto ha diviso gli studiosi moderni. È stato visto come un'opera di primitivismo intenzionale: l'ordine tuscanico associato da Palladio agli edifici agricoli.
