(Description from the OASIS catalog: Chartres Cathedral, with its soaring architecture and 175 stained glass windows, inspires all who enter it and represents a high point of human achievement. In this presentation we will learn about Chartres’s sacred history before focusing on the different elements of the building and the process of its construction between 1130 and 1230. We will take a close look at the remarkable carvings that adorn the cathedral’s three entrances and at the colorful imagery of its stained glass.)
