Renowned geometer and lecturer Tom Bree demonstrates how medieval Master Masons combined their knowledge of the pracical building arts with ancient cosmological knowledge to endow their constructions with profound spiritual meaning. Wells Cathedral, the focus of this book, was England's frst Gothic cathedral, and its design symbolises the soul's cosmic journey from Earth and underworld to the heavens. Bree shows how the medieval Christian fascination with the knowledge of the ancient world laid the foundations for the more recent mythos involving the Templars, Freemasonry and Pyramidology.
