Introduction

La Sainte-Chapelle is a chapel on the Ile de la Cite in Paris, France. It is wildly considered one of the foremost examples of Gothic architecture in the world. The chapel was completed in 1248 and stood untouched until the French Revolution, when it was unceremoniously destroyed. It was originally built to house Kind Louis IX’s collection of relics, including what he believed to be Christ’s crown of thorns. Sainte-Chapelle is home to what many consider to be the world’s most beautiful and intricate stained glass, though much is re-creation based on original documents.
