  THE DOM'S NAVE.....
by eden_teuling
 
 

Here you have a view from the back throughout the NAVE direction East.....

It shows a ROMANESQUE building, which is so completely different from the GOTHIC CATHEDRALS with their pointed windows and arches......the windows and arches here are still lower and rounder......in 1030 they couldn't dream of building higher arches and windows.......I suppose that could the builders of this DOM could have seen a GOTHIC Cathedral centuries later, they would have felt flabbergasted and stunned.....

How very invalid creatures people must have felt there..............we now are so used to sky-scrapers and impressive buildings but to them such a church was a magic place, a miracle, too majestic to grasp.......

Here too: the wonderful pink coloured stone!
