Gothic Cathedrals
GOTHIC CATHEDRAL AT BAYEAUX, FRANCE Gothic cathedrals originated in France. The floor plan of a Gothic cathedral was usually in the shape of a cross. Pointed arches allowed the Cathedral to be built higher, thus giving worshippers a sense that prayers were soaring toward heaven. Its added height also permitted the placement of large, stained glass windows, whose beautiful light symbolised the spirit of God and of Jesus. [MH] {NR}
