Chartres Labyrinth Construction Manual
by Robert Ferre




Overview -
The labyrinth in Chartres Cathedral is arguably the most elegant and influential labyrinth ever made. In 1201 the great master mason of Chartres Cathedral took a known manuscript design and adapted it for his own use, adding sacred proportions and symbolic elements in the form of center petals and perimeter lunations. Carved meticulously out of limestone and marble, the labyrinth has influenced a whole new generation of builders more than eight hundred years later in the twenty-first century. Here Robert describes in great detail his method of constructing the Chartres labyrinth. He includes geometry, technique, tools and templates as well as setting the historical context. The only complete Chartres manual of its kind, this book fills a need by making construction of the labyrinth accessible to anyone who can read and follow the step-by-step directions. Not only does Robert describe the "what" of construction, but also the "why" so the builder can understand the process more fully. Part of a series of labyrinth books that Robert is expanding and upgrading, the proceeds from this special edition go to the nonprofit organization Veriditas which inspires transformation through the labyrinth experience. For more information see these two website: www.labyrinth-enterprises.com and www.veriditas.org.
