Gothic Architecture

    Gothic architecture has three distinct characteristics which set it apart from Romanesque; pointed arches, ribbed vault, and flying buttresses.   These developments allowed the architects to make the church much larger and brighter. Gothic Church By transferring the weight of the ceilings outward thrust to the flying buttresses, they were now able to place huge stain glass windows in the walls.  this allowed the once dim Romanesque Cathedral to be transformed into a very bright and warm feeling  Gothic Cathedral.   These churches also reflect the wealth and influence of the church in the Middle Ages.  Many of these churches and cathedrals took over a century to build.
