Visions of Mary
Art, Devotion, and Beauty at Chartres Cathedral
Through image and word, the story of Mary at Chartres unfolds on the pages of this book.
Author and photographer Jill Geoffrion has unusual access to Chartres Cathedral and offers a unique visual and meditative journey in this newest addition to the Mount Tabor Books series.
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, based on biblical stories such as the Annunciation, Visitation, Nativity, Presentation at the Temple, and Flight to Egypt.
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.
"Rich commentary, and a marvelous array of photographs from the windows and the sculpture."
—John James, author of The Contractors of Chartres
