On Sundays, I usually feature a church.
Today, I am presenting a portrait of Malcolm Miller, who is likely the foremost authority on Cathedral of Our Lady of Chartres. He has been giving lecture tours of this world famous cathedral for over 50 years and says that he continues to learn new details.
According to Mr. Miller, the 13th century Chartres Cathedral can be compared to a library. And like a library, we may visit and read many books, maybe even re-read some books, but we will never read all the books. Chartres is much the same. Its contents: architectural design, statues, and stained glass are each like books and their respective images their text. What is remarkable in this new millennium, said Miller, is that much of Chartres can still be "read." (from Kathleen Lang's "Malcolm Miller: Reading Chartres Cathedral, firstname.lastname@example.org)
If you have an opportunity to see Chartres Cathedral, be sure to search out Mr. Miller for better understanding of the details, stories and mysteries of the cathedral. He will demand your attention much like a professor of his students and delight you with his humor and intimate knowledge.
