Masterpiece. No matter where you are (and where you’ve been), I’m certain you’ve stumbled upon something extraordinary: a place that blows your mind; a work of art or object that speaks to you; or even a location or scene that’s special, unusual, or even magical in some way.
Canterbury Cathedral has some of the finest medieval glass in the country (probably in the world) and there are many miracle stories depicted on the stained glass windows. These windows once served to teach lessons to visitors of the place, many illiterate, who came from all over Europe to pray at the shrine of Thomas Beckett. Among the themes depicted on the windows were biblical stories and Christ’s genealogy. In fact, the oldest window that remains shows a picture of Adam digging in the Garden of Eden, the first figure in Jesus’s genealogy. Here are just a few of these wonderful masterpieces.
