Temple, Raymond du

Temple, Raymond du (fl. c.1359–1403/4). French master-mason under Kings Charles V and VI (1364–1422) of France. He became Master-Mason at Notre Dame, Paris, in 1363, was in charge of the building of the Célestins Chapel (1367–70—fragments survive), and built in the 1370s the celebrated Vis du Louvre, an external spiral stair, one of the first monumental stairs in Western Europe. He was involved in the design and building of the Collège de Beauvais, Paris (from 1387), but little of his work survives. He appears to have enjoyed exceptional Royal favour.
