Summary
This book is based on the idea that every civilization is founded on a new ideal of man. In the case of the Gothic masters, they were the first artists to give visual form to the Christian idea of the worth of the individual soul. The author asserts that their view of man appears not only in the sculptures of Chartres and other churches, but also in the new spatial effects they created using the pointed arch and soaring vaults
