Chartres Cathedral, Part 3 - Stained Glass Window Excerpt

Kaltura

Malcolm Miller continues his slideshow by reading a Bible excerpt featured on one of the stained glass windows at Chartres Cathedral. The excerpt Miller reads chronicles the fulfillment of Old Testament prophecy of the incarnation of Jesus Christ, and the early years of Jesus’ life.

Back during medieval times, before the Reformation made Bibles more readily accessible to common folk, stained glass windows were used to tell stories from the Bible. In those days, only clergymen were allowed to read the Bible, which were all written in Latin at the time.
