Light was thought to bring one closer to God and to be a spiritual experience. Lighting up the churches would then make people have that closer God/divine experience and it also would make people look up to the sky where God was believed to be looking down on his followers.

Abbot Suger helped a whole new movement of religious followers to feel connected to a God and teachings through a buildings construction.
