The 13th Century Tabernacle At Chartres

The tabernacle used during  the Maundy Thursday watch-night service in the crypt of the Chartres Cathedral was made during  the early 13th century artisans in Limoges, France. Created in faith, it inspires faith. May these images draw you into the presence of a God who longs to love you in beautiful ways.
