The inclusion of large stained glass windows and high vaulted ceilings is incredibly significant because these features are the defining aspects of gothic architecture. The large windows allowed much more light into the churches, which before these windows, were most likely pretty dark closed in spaces. Most people associate light with divinity and God, so I think the addition of all the natural light may have helped people feel closer to God, and entering the churches with intricate stained windows with light streaming in is incredibly awe inspiring.
