    Description:

    Our Lady, Virgin and child, is the central trumeau figure.

The names of the architects are known from the labyrinth (destroyed 18th century; reconstructed 1894-1897) that in 1288 was set into the floor of the nave: Robert de Luzarches, Thomas de Cormont and Regnault de Cormont.

    Description:

    The central tympanum shows Christ triumphant at the end of time, surrounded by the symbols of the Four Evangelists.

    Dedicated to Notre-Dame, Chartres Cathedral acquired strong associations with the cult of the Virgin.

The present cathedral was built after a fire in 1194; of the earlier church only the 11th-century crypt and the 12th…

    Description:

    The west portal features great bronze doors known as the “Wolf’s Doors,” which were cast around 800 AD for the original Palatine Chapel. They were based on ancient models and weigh four tons. The modern entrance is through a smaller, more humble doorway to their right.
