Product Description


This book sets out to show that Chartres, like other cathedrals and great monuments of Egypt and Greece, is the manifestation of an ancient and secret lost knowledge that was communicated to mankind by occult or mystical means. In the flowering of medieval gothic, with its significant proportion and dimensions combined with the harmony of light and sound, can be found the sources of divine knowledge, and by deciphering this message in gothic art, man also realizes his own qualities and raises himself to a superior state of being. This book, which refers back to deep sources of divine knowledge, is at the same time a guide for those who want to penetrate the riddle of this "book of stone". --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

This is a landmark book. A must read for anybody interested in the esoteric side of cathedrals. It is available right now in France. It needs to be re-published in English.

5.0 out of 5 stars Fascinating and rare 11 Jun 2011
By A. E Heald - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Mass Market Paperback
I bought this book in a little store outside of the Cathedral. It has turned out to be a fascinating read. I would like to be able to read his other books, but unfortunately they are not translated.

He makes a case for how and why the cathedral was built. He raises the question of why so many Gothic cathedrals were built starting in the same time period, as well as the question of how this Cathedral was funded, designed and who the master builder might be.

I have no idea how valid his theories are about the Templars, but he makes an interesting argument. The book left me wanting more, which is rare these days!
