Goth – barbarian coming from the North. Derogatory term.  Sainte-Chapelle, Paris – founded by the French King Louis IX, and it was to  house a relic – he had a relic of a holy cross. So he founded the chapel to house  the relic and it was his royal chapel – so it was built for him and his courtiers to  worship him, it was to proclaim his royal ambitions and his tastes. Jewel of a  chapel. Not very high/ tall. But a lot of decorative stone work on the outside.  Buttresses – not flying buttresses. Not that tall but because of slender columns  that go directly from the floor to the vaulting gives a viewer the sense of height.  Gothic architecture – like a tree. How they grow tall and there is a canopy over  head. Stained glass windows – they go all around this church so that the light that  comes in is sparkling and colorful. Spiritual message connected with light.
