This well-illustrated study examines the finer architectural and artistic flourishes of Europe's greatest Gothic cathedrals, including roofs, stained glass, painted altar panels and vaults, as well as touching on the design and execution of the building as a whole. Each section is devoted to a particular cathedral and includes separate panels of text on associated themes and topics, such as patrons, artists, political influences and terminology, and lots of colour photographs. The cathedrals are taken from across Europe, including Chartres, Bourges, Reimes, Notre-Dame, Strassburg, Freiburg, Regensburg, Vienna, Prague, Canterbury, Lincoln, Salisbury, Milan and Toledo. German text.
