The Medieval Mind: How To Build A Cathedral



The great cathedrals were engineering marvels of the medieval world built with not much more than pulleys and ropes, chisels and hammers and set squares. Architectural historian Jon Cannon searches for answers on how these structures were built and the ambition that it took when looking at Glouchester, York, Norwich and Ely.

They're beautiful, but a complete waste of resources. They come from a time when religion oppressed, controlled, abused, and ruled the masses all in the name of God.  A more practical use of that talent and money could have been used to house the homeless, feed the poor, build modest shelters... Or making institutions of learning more affordable.

That's like my opinion man, but you get my drift... ;)

Before I watched the entire movie a few moons back in early 2003, I caught that one scene on cable and it cracked me up enough to motivate me to go buy the DVD.

I agree completely, man. To this day I have problems with religious orders building massive and elaborate places of worship and donning expensive clothing. What if those resources were used to create a better society for the human condition? Isn't that the point of many of the teachings?

I guess all religions have their ups and downs.  :-\
