Medieval cathedrals sought to produce on earth a copy of the heavenly city as described in the book of Revelations. They were also the skyscrapers of their age pushing stone technology to the limits.
This talk seeks to trace the techniques and skills used by the cathedral builders from the 4th century to the 20th century charting their successes and failures.
