Grand churches and cathedrals  JUN 14 2001

Grand churches and cathedrals...two things you just don't see over here in America very often. We visited two cathedrals in Paris, the Notre Dame and a smaller one that I can't remember the name of right now. The stained glass windows in the smaller cathedral were amazing (the photos don't do justice to the almost supernatural vividness of the purples and reds of the glass), but the angels on the doorway to the Notre Dame had me dumbfounded. If you look closely, each of the angels is doing something a little differently. The huge doorway to the cathedral is covered with these angels, each carved to do its own thing. I can't imagine the amount of work that went into making just that one doorway, let along the whole building.
