Offering a unique visual and meditative journey through Chartres Cathedral, Jill Geoffrion unfolds the story of Mary. Showing and explaining the most engaging images of Mary created in this location over the last eight centuries, Geoffrion discusses 75 recently restored works of sculpture, painting, and liturgical items. An architectural marvel, Chartres also holds the most complete twelfth and thirteenth century collection of stained glass in the world, with many images of Mary as Jesus's mother, based on the biblical stories of the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Presentation at the Temple, and Flight to Egypt.
