P6034148ac Strange Sensation When Entering Metz Cathedral St Etienne

P6034148ac Strange Sensation When Entering Metz Cathedral St Etienne
Just after entering by the strongly lighted South entry porch, the very dark inside made me feel this cathedral quite lugubrious!!! After a moment, as in Chartres cathedral, the eyes adapt to the darkness and it becomes feeric! First inside view of North windows; France Lorraine Region Moselle Department Metz Capital Cathedral St Etienne.

Rien à voir avec les riantes cathédrales Baroque Roccoco toutes blanches et truffées d'or!!! Je me demande ce qui appelle le plus à la méditation! Merci Gilles!

new word for me today - lugubrious. I think I would prefer a cathdral not as dark.

Not sure Carol! When I entered in Chartres the first time, I felt to become blind....After a short moment, colorful windows at all levels of the great edifice enlighted my vision as fireworks and it became sublime as if I was suddenly projected in the space with stars of all colors as for space men!!!! They are clearing the Chartres catheral inside and on my opinion it is not a good idea!!!!

I will take your word for it as I won't have opportunity to see two to judge for myself.
