Books Info:

Chartres free pdf Gordon Strachan, author of the highly acclaimed Jesus the Master Builder (Floris Books, 1998), is back with a ground-breaking new work. In this book he explores the magnificent structure of Chartres Cathedral, and examines the influences on the medieval master builders. Using Chartres as a starting point, Dr Strachan suggests that the origins of the Gothic style may lie in Islamic architecture. He goes on to consider how the experience of a particular architectural space affects us, and how sacred geometry works. Beautifully illustrated in a large format, this is an inspiring and informative book for anyone interested in religious architecture and spirituality.
