Chartres Cathedral Portal Windows

The stained glass windows of Chartres Cathedral in France are considered the crown of all stained glass art and represent the highest form of this type of objective art. The windows reveal an amazing quality of light that penetrate to the innermost consciousness of the human being. The three portal windows are the 'Virgin and Child,' 'Tree of Jessie'and the 'Passion Window.' They symbolize the perfection of the Virgin Mary, mother of Jesus, and the sacrifice of Christ who entered this world as Redeemer to save humanity.
