A superb example of twelfth-to thirteenth-century Gothic architecture, believed by some occultists to enshrine ancient mysteries of religious inspiration. For example, in his book The Mysteries of Chartres Cathedral (1972), Louis Charpentier claims that the cathedral is built on the site of powerful and ancient earth currents. He examines the mystery of the amazing architecture of the cathedral, its historic connection with the Knights Templar, and its symbolic and esoteric meanings.
