Course Overview

Powerful words are needed to describe Chartres Cathedral, the medieval pilgrimage destination near Paris: magnificent, indeed; profound, deeply so; mystical, beyond most sacred sites. Yet Chartres is also dark and daring to one’s spirit, radical and complex. Outside are the two weird spires, sculptures depicting rejected liturgy, and eccentric architecture. Inside are a stained-glass window of Egyptian deities Isis and Horus, and the fabled labyrinth in the marble floor. The crypt reveals Roman-era walls, early Christian frescoes, a Druid well, and a replacement Black Madonna. Let's unfold the mysteries together.
