  • Chartres Cathedral is the most perfect example of the medieval cathedral illustrating man's faith, intellectual understanding and engineering ability. Regarded as pure engineering, there is nothing miraculous about Chartres Cathedral--but the placement of the stone, the design of the glass windows, the flying buttresses, the durability of the structure are a "triumph of man's skill, one of the most daring as well as the most logical creations of man." John Canaday, art critic for The New York Times, narrates.
