Universe of Stone: A Biography of Chartres Cathedral Philip Ball

Chartres Cathedral, south of Paris, is revered as one of the most beautiful and profound works of art in the Western canon. But what did it mean to those who constructed it in the twelfth and thirteenth centuries? And why, during this time, did Europeans begin to build churches in a new style, at such immense height and with the such glorious play of light, in the soaring manner we now call Gothic?
