I consider myself privileged to have seen Chartres as part of my college education. But we students did not have videos like this that show closeups of sculptural details and that provide a good explanation of Chartres' historical development. This is a gem of a presentation and I am very grateful for it. One thing that I lament is the plastering over of the structural stones in the groin vaults that have been painted with false joints. The overall effect is a nave with a very clean appearance that belies the actual structural elements of the vaulting and their true age.

I was lucky enough to visit this beautiful place many years ago. There is so much to see that you can't possibly take it all in. Thanks for taking me back there and showing me some of the things I missed.

West doorway: 12th century gothic
Small, round windows
King's gallery
Rose window: plate tracery (not bar tracery)
Lancets: sculptures; jamb figures (prophets, kings and queens of France, isolated and ethereal)
Tympanum (L to R): Christ before incarnation, second coming, second coming, Christ's birth (annunciation, visitation, birth of Christ, Jesus brought to the temple, Mary as the throne of wisdom (Christ is wisdom))
(Used to be ascension, second coming, life of virgin Mary)

Roman influence: based on basilica
1194 fire; beginning of High Gothic style
Three-part elevation instead of four-part elevation
Four-point ribbed groin vault: more room for stained glass; flying buttresses support

Virgin of the Beautiful Window: blue against red, Mary as throne of wisdom; heavenly image

North transept: rose window; Blanche of Castille, mother of King Louis IX, major patron of Gothic art, references to French monarchy
South transept: projects much more than West (High Gothic); jamb figures independent from columns; more natural

Evolution of Gothic style

Excellent! Your presentations are so cogent and interesting. So sad that Reims and Amiens were not as fortunate in terms of their stained glass survival.

Actually much of the west front looks decidely Romanesque . (Exceptions of course being the portals and the round window)
