Stained glass windows in church buildings are a very common sight to see all over Europe. This is because it became so popular during the Gothic period. I believe this is the case because it allowed the church to have large pieces of art depicting stories from the bible. But also allowed for large amounts of natural light to come into the building. This was a brilliant technique because of how beautiful and ornate the large glass works of art were. It drew your eye up to it and demanded your attention with its beauty and told you its story. The Rose Window in Chartres Cathedral is a perfect example of how these beautiful pieces of work demand your attention to tell you their story.
