In truth, whether the traveler stands entranced before the west fronts Of Amiens, Rheims, or Bourges, or the glorious south and north porches of Chartres, or the splendors Of St. Mark's at Venice, or the shining basilicas Of Orvieto and Assisi, it is the same sublime theme that commands his attention in every one of these great epics in stone. Each temple is the Book of the Lamb, written within and without. These stupendous structures, brought to completion by the generosity and joint labor of centuries, are so many Bibles ever open to the people, keeping fresh in their minds the whole cycle Of Divine truths, from the creation Of the world to the final judgment.
