Troyes Cathedral - Gothic style church in France
Troyes Cathedral, a Gothic style church in France. Not all too far from Paris is the quanit small city of Troyes. Know for inventing the Troy ounce weighing system for gold, the city is also home to many religous treasures. Such as the amazing Troyes Cathedral. It is massive and approaching the church grounds from any side atests to that. Its hard to see the entire length of the complex, from any one location. We read, "Troyes Cathedral (Cathedrale Saint-Pierre-et-Saint-Paul de Troyes) is a Roman Catholic cathedral, and a national monument of France, located in the town of Troyes in Champagne. It is the seat of the Bishop of Troyes." Source - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Troyes_Cathedral Now it was the Council of Troyes where the Knights Templar became officially recognized by the then pope. We read from same link source as above, "The site has been used for religious buildings since at least the 4th century, when an oratory stood on the site. A cathedral was built in the 9th century, but was badly damaged by Norman invasions and was replaced in the 10th century, from about 940, when bishop Milo built a Romanesque cathedral. This building was the location of the Council of Troyes that opened on 13 January 1128 or 29, at which the Order of the Knights Templar was confirmed and its rule established. The Romanesque cathedral was destroyed by fire in 1188.” The pillars inside, with eight points of columns stretching upwards to the ceiling are incredible. The stained-glass windows are indeed lovely. When the sun shins, it casts colourful shadows throughout the place of worship. The hues and lightning is beautiful. If in Troyes, check out Troyes Cathedral, it is an amazing step back in time, rihc with history.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FAFoH8QNZfo&list=PLM4S2hGZDSE686AJC8_HVnAQD32BeS-1U&index=1 First broadcast: Oct 2014. Medieval historian Dr Janina Ramirez looks back to a time when British craftsmen and their patrons created a new form of architecture. The art and architecture of France would dominate England for much of the medieval age. Yet British stone masons and builders would make Gothic architecture their own, inventing a national style for the first time - Perpendicular Gothic - and giving Britain a patriotic backdrop to suit its new ambitions of chivalry and power. From a grand debut at Gloucester Cathedral to commemorate a murdered king to its final glorious flowering at King's College Chapel in Cambridge, the Perpendicular age was Britain's finest.

OOPS! Gothic Style is NOT "German", but "ATLANTEAN/ROMAN?!"
TSHIRT DESIGNS! GET YOURS and help me out!! https://shop.spreadshirt.com/ancient-mystery-by-charles-kos/ We overturn 500 years of architectural history with new revelations! Gothic has always been with us! Possibly fake history says that it is 'gothic'. Makes no sense! It appeared everywhere at once. Was it buildings being rebuilt which were too fragile to survive the Dark Ages Catastrophe? Additional Points! * Milan Cathedral a replacement for a Roman Pyramid? or earlier Pyramid Structure? (Thanks Tina Silver!) * Gothic is not German but proven to be just another Roman Style which was more delicate and less able to survive earthquakes. * Porsena's tomb of 500 BC was actually a Gothic Structure! Description of the Tomb of Porsena: "Porsena was buried below the city of Clusium in the place where he had built a square monument of dressed stones. Each side was three hundred feet in length and fifty in height, and beneath the base there was an inextricable labyrinth, into which, if any-body entered without a clue of thread, he could never discover his way out. Above this square building there stand five pyramids, one at each corner and one in the centre, seventy-five feet [c. 22 meters] broad at the base and one hundred and fifty feet [c. 44 meters] high. These pyramids so taper in shape that upon the top of all of them together there is supported a brazen globe, and upon that again a petasus from which bells are suspended by chains. These make a tinkling sound when blown about by the wind, as was done in bygone times at Dodona. Upon this globe there are four more pyramids, each a hundred feet [c. 30 meters] in height, and above them is a platform on which are five more pyramids." * Why did no-one actually call it 'gothic' till after the 'gothic' era anyway! Makes no sense! It's cos it wasn't! It's Roman pyramids and obelisks in imitation of Egypt! * The point Arch may well be a crusader import but we prove the ancient ETRUSCANS were using it, as well as spires! * Was it another empire, pre-Rome which built in Gothic? * The New Kingdom architecture of Egypt seems similar to what we call Romanesque! * Gothic = Earlier Etruscan Roman, Romanesque is the Christian Architecture of Egypt? * Connect with me: Guess what I got T-shirts (MERCH FINALLY!) https://shop.spreadshirt.com.au/CharlesKos/ Support this channel! https://www.patreon.com/charleskos New MAIN SITE: http://www.charleskos.com/ Book https://www.amazon.com/Search-Origin-Pyramids-Lost-Gods/dp/0987420828/ Old School Website http://charles.kos.id.au/ FACEBOOK OFFICIAL: https://www.facebook.com/CharlesKosPhD/ Videos collected together http://www.whatisgiza.com/

Exploring an Eerie 1800's Gothic Style Stone House
MY 100th YOUTUBE VIDEO POST!!!! THANKS YOU EVERYONE FOR ALL THE SUPPORT!!!! I was searching for a different house that was a recommend by a loyal subscriber, so I must give full credit for this random to LicksnKicks. While not the house I was told me about, I still give credit for bringing me to the area.! When I looked at this house , it was almost like it was staring back at me. I was drawn to it. Covered in foliage and totally blocked from the road by more than 100ft, I really have no idea how I found it..just a glimpse of stone face made me look further into the trees. I lived not 2km from this house for over 15 years, and never knew it was there. I will post more history when (if) II find it, but I do know it is a Gothic style house from the late 1800, in the area of 1850-1865. After climbing through the window I had a feeling of being enclosed, like no escape..one way in, and one tiny way out...but despite my claustrophobia I moved on. The walls black with mold, chipping paint and fire damage gave the feel that much more of a creep feel,...but when I saw some of the feature of the house I could tell that there was alot of love here. The play castle, the solar system border, the Yoshie coat racks..this was a family home with children who were loved. Lots of decay and rot and while there was some evidence of residence in 1999...I think it has been much longer. As I ventured into the upstairs, the smell of rot filled the air and when I found the dead creature just lying there, I could not help but wonder, how did it just die? I loved this explore because it crept into my bones as I walked about...some places just have that feeling. This was an ideal location on a perfect summer day! As always, thank you for watching!

Beautiful Gothic Architecture
PLEASE see my UK Places to visit Playlist here https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL42389B6659B65580 for mor great historic England,Wales and Scotland Beautiful Gothic Architecture Video by Robert Nichol music by John Mayfield. Gothic architecture is a style of architecture that flourished during the high and late medieval period. It evolved from Romanesque architecture and was succeeded by Renaissance architecture. Originating in 12th-century France and lasting into the 16th century, Gothic architecture was known during the period as "French work" (Opus Francigenum), with the term Gothic first appearing during the latter part of the Renaissance. Its characteristic features include the pointed arch, the ribbed vault and the flying buttress. Gothic architecture is most familiar as the architecture of many of the great cathedrals, abbeys and churches of Europe. It is also the architecture of many castles, palaces, town halls, guild halls, universities and to a less prominent extent, private dwellings. It is in the great churches and cathedrals and in a number of civic buildings that the Gothic style was expressed most powerfully, its characteristics lending themselves to appeal to the emotions. A great number of ecclesiastical buildings remain from this period, of which even the smallest are often structures of architectural distinction while many of the larger churches are considered priceless works of art and are listed with UNESCO as World Heritage Sites. For this reason a study of Gothic architecture is largely a study of cathedrals and churches. A series of Gothic revivals began in mid-18th-century England, spread through 19th-century Europe and continued, largely for ecclesiastical and university structures, into the 20th century. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_architecture Gothic Architecture,Gothic,Architecture,Gothic Art,medieval period,Renaissance architecture,Middle Ages (Event)
15 Craziest Medieval Buildings
Stay tuned to learn about some of the most impressive medieval structures around, including castles that were built nearly one thousand years and a cathedral that, for centuries was the world’s tallest building. Subscribe to Knowledge Feed for awesome mysteries, discoveries, fun topics and all around AWESOME videos ! 8. Wells Cathedral When the present Wells Cathedral was constructed sometime around 1175, it was the first cathedral to be built entirely using the new Gothic Style that was brought from France. The first phase of building took around eight decades to complete. 300 statues that were built during its original construction remain to this day. Architects and observes widely recognize the Wells Cathedral as one of the most beautiful of all of the English Cathedrals. 7. Guildhall of London Perhaps the most impressive aspect of London’s Guildhall is its breathtaking medieval great hall which is regularly used for grand ceremonies. The building was undertaken in 1411 and completed in 1440. The Great Fire of London in 1666 didn’t affect the Guildhall too much, though partial restoration from slight damage would be required. 6. Eltz Castle Amazingly, this castle is still owned by a branch of the same family that lived there in the eleven hundred's a full 33 generations ago, the Eltz family. In 1268 the Eltz brothers had a dispute, and the family split the castle in three, with each sibling building their own fortified living quarters. These separate building co-existed for hundreds of years. Finally, in the early 1800's, the House of the Golden Lion had outlived the other families and was prosperous enough to unify the castle. 5. Mont Saint Michel Abbey Today, the medieval island community of Mont Saint Michel has an epic Abbey at its apex and is connected to France’s coast via a single 2500 foot highway and footbridge. It's one of the most popular tourist attractions in the country and millions visit annually. In medieval times the monastery protected the French from the invading English repeatedly during the Hundred Years’ War and thanks to state of the art fortifications for its time was never seized. After the French Revolution, the island became nothing more than a dilapidated prison until prominent figures like author Victor Hugo launched a recovery campaign. Their efforts were rewarded when the prison closed in 1863 and again when Mont Saint Michel was declared a historical monument in 1874. Restoration efforts have been ongoing for years and have made the island an extremely impressive, beautiful site. 4. Lincoln Cathedral One of the most impressive Gothic structures on the planet Lincoln Cathedral lies in the town of Lincoln, England. Bishop Remigius started work on the Cathedral in 1072. An earthquake would partially destroy the Cathedral in 1124 leaving only the West Front, which has been preserved to this day. When a replacement tower with a spire was added to the Lincoln Cathedral, it became the tallest building in the world and would hold this title for the next 238 years until the spire collapsed in 1549. It was not rebuilt. 3. Westminster Abbey One of the most iconic buildings in the world Westminster Abbey has been the setting of every royal coronation since the coronation of William the Conqueror in 1066, has seen at least 16 royal weddings, and is the resting place of 17 English monarchs. King Henry the third rebuilt the Abbey starting in 1245 and chose it to be his burial site. Today Westminster Abbey attracts over a million visitors every year. 2. Windsor Castle Windsor Castle has served the British royal family for over one thousand years, making it the oldest occupied castle in all of England. When constructed in the eleventh century it was simple and made of wood. King Henry the first favored the castle and started a gradual reconstruction process that would turn Windsor Castle into one of the most expensive buildings in the Middle Ages. A humongous fire in 1992 destroyed large portions of the castle, but it was rebuilt into the magnificent specimen that it is today. Wow Windsor Castle is absolutely massive. If you’ve made it this far than you’re really into medieval building which is great because so are we. Leave a cool comment and we may shout you out by name in our next video and, as always, thanks for watching. 1. Notre Dame de Paris While Victor Hugo was busy saving Mont Saint Michel Abbey from the destructive nature of time he was also writing about another of the continent’s most impressive medieval structures, Notre Dame. The cathedral lies in Paris and is widely considered the most impressive feat of French Gothic architecture ever erected. It’s one of the most well-known churches on Earth. The cathedral treasury contains a reliquary which houses some of the most valuable objects of Catholicism including the Crown of Thorns and a portion of the True Cross.

English Gothic Architecture
English Gothic is the name of the architectural style that flourished in England from about 1180 until about 1520.
A Collection of 285 Gothic Artworks by 8 Artists (HD) [Gothic Art]
A Collection of 285 Gothic Artworks by 8 Artists (HD) Gothic art was a style of medieval art that developed in Northern France out of Romanesque art in the 12th century AD, led by the concurrent development of Gothic architecture. It spread to all of Western Europe, and much of Southern and Central Europe, never quite effacing more classical styles in Italy. In the late 14th century, the sophisticated court style of International Gothic developed, which continued to evolve until the late 15th century. In many areas, especially Germany, Late Gothic art continued well into the 16th century, before being subsumed into Renaissance art. Primary media in the Gothic period included sculpture, panel painting, stained glass, fresco and illuminated manuscripts. The easily recognizable shifts in architecture from Romanesque to Gothic, and Gothic to Renaissance styles, are typically used to define the periods in art in all media, although in many ways figurative art developed at a different pace. The earliest Gothic art was monumental sculpture, on the walls of Cathedrals and abbeys. Christian art was often typological in nature (see Medieval allegory), showing the stories of the New Testament and the Old Testament side by side. Saints' lives were often depicted. Images of the Virgin Mary changed from the Byzantine iconic form to a more human and affectionate mother, cuddling her infant, swaying from her hip, and showing the refined manners of a well-born aristocratic courtly lady. Secular art came into its own during this period with the rise of cities, foundation of universities, increase in trade, the establishment of a money-based economy and the creation of a bourgeois class who could afford to patronize the arts and commission works resulting in a proliferation of paintings and illuminated manuscripts. Increased literacy and a growing body of secular vernacular literature encouraged the representation of secular themes in art. With the growth of cities, trade guilds were formed and artists were often required to be members of a painters' guild—as a result, because of better record keeping, more artists are known to us by name in this period than any previous; some artists were even so bold as to sign their names. Gothic art emerged in Île-de-France, France, in the early 12th century at the Abbey Church of St Denis built by Abbot Suger. The style rapidly spread beyond its origins in architecture to sculpture, both monumental and personal in size, textile art, and painting, which took a variety of forms, including fresco, stained glass, the illuminated manuscript, and panel painting. Monastic orders, especially the Cistercians and the Carthusians, were important builders who disseminated the style and developed distinctive variants of it across Europe. Regional variations of architecture remained important, even when, by the late 14th century, a coherent universal style known as International Gothic had evolved, which continued until the late 15th century, and beyond in many areas. Although there was far more secular Gothic art than is often thought today, as generally the survival rate of religious art has been better than for secular equivalents, a large proportion of the art produced in the period was religious, whether commissioned by the church or by the laity. Gothic art was often typological in nature, reflecting a belief that the events of the Old Testament pre-figured those of the New, and that this was indeed their main significance. Old and New Testament scenes were shown side by side in works like the Speculum Humanae Salvationis, and the decoration of churches. The Gothic period coincided with a great resurgence in Marian devotion, in which the visual arts played a major part. Images of the Virgin Mary developed from the Byzantine hieratic types, through the Coronation of the Virgin, to more human and initimate types, and cycles of the Life of the Virgin were very popular. Artists like Giotto, Fra Angelico and Pietro Lorenzetti in Italy, and Early Netherlandish painting, brought realism and a more natural humanity to art. Western artists, and their patrons, became much more confident in innovative iconography, and much more originality is seen, although copied formulae were still used by most artists. ------------- https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gothic_art --------------- ---------------------------------------------------- BAROQUE [Post Renaissance Art] : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOZVqusZxS_TFGVWRL6nG5V3C9j3h5xnp HIGH RENAISSANCE [Renaissance Art]: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOZVqusZxS_TAW8yBAWDSpPeV-B4EUnUe EARLY RENAISSANCE [RENAISSANCE ARTS] : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOZVqusZxS_Rl5u1xeWi3_hNWVbd99rp8 PROTO RENAISSANCE [Renaissance Art] : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOZVqusZxS_R6P61q7DOnuZgGGsqw-tN3 Medieval Art : https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLOZVqusZxS_T7YNe7cv7fLpg6Hej3NiSh -------------------------------- © 9Tv
