Cathedral Doorways Gallery

Cathedral doors originated in the medieval period when construction relied heavily on quarried stone. The weight of the stones had to be distributed across the openings for doors and windows, and arches were the perfect solution. Cathedral doors allowed doors and windows to open and close correctly despite the heavy stone of the building. With the invention of other building materials, cathedral doors became purely ornamental.

Even the most ordinary structures, cropped within the context of a particular array of light, can yield extraordinary results.”
