Metz Cathedral

"In the eyes of medieval man, a cathedral was God's house on earth. Adam's fall might have obscured the true order of the cosmos, rendering most of the world sinful and irregular, but within the bounds of a cathedral, the original, geometric beauty of the Garden of Eden had been resurrected. The light shining through the stained-glass windows prefigured that which would radiate in the next life." - Alain de Bottton, The Architecture of Happiness
