Rue des Minimes, Paris

thanks to Timour Jgenti


Here is what I know about Mersenne and the Minim house: Where exactly is Mersenne's birthplace, Oize/Maine (ici?)? I know it is near Le Mans. Is there a map on the Internet?

There is a "rue des Minimes" in Paris, Orleans, Blois, Courbevoie, Compiegne, Trest, and Bruxelles, Belgium and many more cities, I'm sure. There is a Minim church in Bruxelles.

rue de Minims
Central Paris
The Place de la Bastille is center, far right. The red circles with "M" are Metro (subway) stations. Find the Chemin Vert Metro station north of the Bastille, then go slightly east to find rue des Minimes. The Cathedral of Notre Dame is in the lower left. The Palais Royal (Musée du Louvre) is off the map, west of the Bastille.
