Chartres Cathedral

Lecture no. 14 from the course: The World's Greatest Churches

Chartres Cathedral

Taught by Professor William R. Cook | 31 min | Categories: The Great Courses Plus Online Travel Courses

This grand edifice is widely considered the most outstanding cathedral of the Gothic style. Look deeply into its huge and complex decorative scheme, highlighting the explosion of biblical sculpture on the façade and side porches, and the masterful stained-glass rose and lancet windows, a richly detailed view into medieval life and theology.
