About the Event
Enjoy a high-quality virtual visit to the treasures of the gothic High Middle Ages. Rather than traveling thousands of miles, across seas and oceans only to walk thousands of steps to visit the high-traffic areas of France, the country with the highest foreign tourist traffic in the world, now you can make that journey from the comfort of your home!
Staying safe and staying home, you will enjoy a decade's worth of insights gleaned from leading pilgrims and patrons through the beauitful & compelling drama of sacred beauty. It is also a perfect opportunity to get some real *insider* information with a small group of online friends.
The theme of this virtual visit will focus on the famous stained glass masterpieces of the Sainte Chapelle & the cathedrale of Notre Dame. Making use of the virtual tour provided by these sites, we will explore the history, theology, philosophy, and art of this sacred space. This visit will serve as a general introduction to the way the light pours thorugh the incredible rich colors of the stained glass to create the most brilliant illuminated Bible (and Bible Studies) you could ever imagine ! And we will come to apprecitate how the 'cool' debates about science, natural reason, and modernism inspired the people building these buildings & ourselves as modern people!
This is not a boring Zoom; this is a highly-interactive and highly-produced virtual cultural experience.
All the virtual walks will take place online, of course. To participate you will need a computer with a good (fast) internet connection, and Zoom downloaded onto your computer or device. We recommend that you have WhatsApp installed and working, but this is not necessary.
Once you register, all the log-in details, instructions, and directions will be sent to you via email.
As a courtesy, if you plan to no longer participate in the virtual tour, we ask you to please provide us with a cancellation notice at least 24 hours before the event. We cannot guarantee refunds for cancellations made with less than 24 hours' notice, though we will endeavor to do our best !
