Chartres: Sacred Geometry, Sacred Space
(click for map etc.)
Chartres Cathedral continues to attract thousands of pilgrims after over seven hundred years. Gordon Strachan believes it is because of a unique combination of the earth energies of the ancient site, the marriage of Christian and Islamic architecture, mysticism and the skills of medieval geometers and craftsmen. This synthesis has resulted in the creation of a sacred space which still has the power to affect and help us tune into our divine potential.
Gordon Strachan has taught in the Department of Architecture , Department of Religious Studies and the Centre for Continuing Education at the University of Edinburgh. He is author of Jesus the Master Builder and most recently The Return of Merlin: Starlore and the Patterns of History.
