Abstract From the top of its arcade to the bottom of its vault, the Cathedral at Amiens is virtually all windows-a truly remarkable feat for 13th-century engineering. This program thoroughly examines France's monumental masterpiece, an architectural hymn to the High Gothic in stone and glass. With height the dominant aesthetic aim, skeletal construction was carried to its precarious limit, creating a sunlit nave more than 140 feet high and capable of accommodating a congregation of 10,000. The cathedral's charmed history, during which it has remained unscathed by revolution and war, is also discussed.
