Overview
Through image and word, author and photographer Jill Geoffrion unfolds the the story of Mary at Chartres on the pages of this book. Geoffrion offers a unique visual and meditative journey through Chartres Cathedral in this newest addition to the Mount Tabor Books series. Showing and explaining the most engaging images of Mary created in this location over the last eight centuries, Jill Geoffrion gently introduces the reader to the depth and breadth of the story of Mary at the Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres. Included are over seventy-five images of the Virgin of Chartres that have been recently restored as well as works of sculpture, painting and liturgical items. Readers will discover an architectural marvel, a stunning showcase for 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 biblical stories such as the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Presentation at the Temple, and Flight to Egypt.
