Comments Visions of Mary: Art, Devotion, and Beauty at Chartres Cathedral

  1. As a Protestant, I don t spend too much time thinking about Mary When I do, it is often in the Advent, Christmas season, reading of Mary s Annunciation, her Magnificat, the Holy Family at the manger, and the things she treasured in her heart Certainly, I knew she was special there is something about Mary , but Marian devotion, despite its prevalence in the historic and global church, has always been conceptually opaque to me.This was Rev Jill Geoffrion s experience too when as a lifelong Protest [...]


  2. This amazing book has made Mary accessible and comprehensible to me than I ever would have dreamed possible Though I have spent countless hours in the Chartres Cathedral, marveling at the wonders, contemplating the images, and praying in the various chapels, Jill s strikingly beautiful photos and carefully researched and crafted commentary on each image kept drawing me powerfully to each page The loveliness moved me, and what I saw and read opened my eyes and mind to many things I have never se [...]


  3. I have had the privilege of traveling to Chartres Cathedral on two occasions recently, but it was not until I opened Jill Geoffion s Book, Visions of Mary, that I could fully appreciate the beauty and history of this magnificent holy site Her brilliant and striking photographs makes each window and statue feel alive with meaning as you travel through the Cathedral in this book And the superbly written text guides you through Mary s important role in the church and creates a deeper appreciation f [...]


  4. I had the privilege of previewing this book and I have to say it is awesome The author s rarely viewed angles and extreme close ups make these photographs exceptional Adjacent to each photo is a brilliant, in depth analysis of the inspiration, the prevalent religious beliefs, and background behind each work Coming from a Protestant upbringing, it is especially enlightening to learn how the founders of the early church and many current day believers view the life and various roles of Mary the mot [...]


  5. A fantastic compilation of the art works newly renovated at Chartres with an overarching purpose of drawing the reader into a prayerful attitude towards the objects she presents Her warm welcoming spirit enlivens this book and urges the reader to take part in his or her own personal pilgrimage Her Protestant background and pastoral care make this a wonderful bridge to the ecumenical world Labyrinths, statues and stained glass are the medium Those who already know Chartres, as well as the first t [...]


  6. Thank you to Jill Kimberly Hartwell Geoffrion and Paraclete Press for sending me a copy.I have never been to Chartres Cathedral in France, but now I feel like I have The artwork, specifically of Mary, is so engaging and well documented in this book that I finished it in a day.Absolutely stunning.
