Long Description:
[FR] L'église Saint-André d'Ifs est située dans le département français du Calvados, sur la commune d'Ifs, paroisse de Saint-Jean-Bosco-des-Cités, diocèse de Bayeux et Lisieux.
L'église date des XIIe et XIIIe siècles. Le clocher, le mur nord de la nef, y compris le portail, le maître-autel et la chaire sont classés Monuments historiques depuis le 4 octobre 1946. Le portail latéral sud, orné de chevrons et de têtes symboliques, a été classé par un arrêté du 16 mars 1921.
Le chœur, probablement du XIIIe siècle, a été reconstruit en style roman en 1878 et restauré après les destructions de 1944. L'église appartenait à l'abbaye Saint-Étienne de Caen qui en reçut confirmation en 1170.
La chaire est composée de six panneaux : quatre sur la cuve et deux sur le muret de l'escalier montrant le Christ et saint Pierre encadrant les évangélistes. Elle a été réalisée en 1685 à l'initiative de l'abbé Droulin et d'un bourgeois caennais, François Hachet, et restaurée en 1865.
