Europe 2009: St Chapelle

St. Chapelle has the most photographed stained glass windows in the world. These photos really do not do it justice. There are over 1300 panes of glass, depicting scenes from the Bible. On the left is the Old Testament, in the center is the Resurrection and the right is the New Testament. This cathedral was built to house the Crown of Thorns, with the crown specifically located inside this altar. The crown is now with the relics at Notre Dame.
