Awesome Classmates and the wonderful and amazing Dr. C (Ok, so you
don’t have to use those cool adjectives, lol), here is my main post to
the Week 6 Discussion: “Europe’s Cathedral Architecture”

Key functions of stained glass windows
there are two main areas to discuss in this section. Assess how
stained glass provided an opportunity to increase the amount of light
within buildings, especially Gothic style buildings. Another key
function of stained glass was that it gave the church an opportunity.

almost like a fortress, with few windows and thick solid walls. Think
about how one would feel inside such a structure, dark and lit by
hundreds of candles. Then talk about Gothic architecture, stretching
higher and higher in the sky, with lots of windows, light etc. Then
think about how people felt sitting inside one of these structures

An example of (Romanesque or Gothic) architecture near me is

Many churches in your area, especially Catholic ones are probably Gothic
in style. Public buildings, like a courthouse or library might be more
Romanesque in nature. This would be a great spot to include a
picture. You can certainly use Google to find a picture of a building
your local area to add to your post. So clearly identify the name of
the building, the location of it and which style you think it best
