One of the elements that we can’t think of being absent from either a church or a cathedral is the stained glass. It is mostly associated with Gothic churches, but the style has passed through various other churches and cathedral around the wrorld and it truly transforms an interior into a magically beautiful place. If you’ve traveled to Europe and visited a large cathedral, you must have seen at least one stained glass window and I feel confident that you will want to see more.
