The Basse Œuvre ), in full the Parish Church of Our Lady of the Basse Œuvre of Beauvais , is a church at the west end of Beauvais Cathedral, dated to the 10th century. It was classed as a historic monument in the list of 1840. It is the west end remnant of a much longer church which had been Beauvais' cathedral. It was built in the form of a Roman basilica, a style which still characterized the Carolingian era.
The Basse Oeuvre was dedicated to St. Peter, the Virgin and St. John the Baptist when it was built in the second half of the tenth century.
