The documentary Chartres Cathedral: A Sacred Geometry carries audiences inside the titular monument, one of the world's most revered structures, located in Chartres, France. BBC cameramen travel inside of the sacred building to provide glimpses of the haunting architecture, accompanied by lush music. Professor Keith Critchlow, one of the world's foremost authorities on holy structures, and Malcolm Miller, guide to the cathedral, act as co-hosts and explain the sacred meaning of the building's various features -- from the way in which the stained-glass windows recount the Biblical creation to the medieval labyrinth ensconced in the cathedral nave. Chartres Cathedral: A Sacred Geometry is an essential document for all students of medieval architecture, Catholic liturgy, and Biblical history.
