The Sainte-Chapelle was built by King Louis IX in the 1240s to hold the crown of thorns, a relic from the Crucifixion. The enormous stained glass windows that make up its walls are filled with biblical scenes.
Wow, my queue ran out and I didn’t even notice! Sorry for the almost-week without posts, beautiful followers.
And welcome, new followers! This blog has over 500 now (missed that too — thanks, work/adulthood), which is amazing. Glad to see so many people with an appreciation for beautiful buildings :)
Don’t worry; I filled up the queue just now with 55 more posts. Your daily architecture fix is coming back, I promise.
