We examine its origin in a great fire, and how its builders overcame opposition, violence and destruction to create a magnificent structure that has withstood almost eight centuries. Building the Chartres Cathedral pushed construction techniques to the limit, but behind this engineering triumph lies a dark story of violence, political double-dealing and destruction.
