Building the Medieval Cathedral
Presented by Wayne Kalayjian, PE, SE
Tuesdays June 18 and 25, 2019.
7 PM in the Sanctuary
Medieval cathedrals are among the most intricate and inspiring legacies of the Church. They are also fascinating windows into the past and tell us much about the political, artistic, and cultural tempers of those times; the religious convictions of their patrons; and the engineering daring that it took to have them built. The two consecutive presentations will explore how these great moments of the Middle Ages were designed and constructed, how they were financed, as well as their philosophical underpinnings. As a “current events” bonus, possibilities for the rebuilding of Notre Dame will be reviewed.
