Gothic Development in France, brings us an entirely new vocabulary of building pieces and parts, and explains the origin of the term "gothic." Definitions are notably: Buttresses, Flying Buttresses, Tracery, Cusps, Finials, Gargoyles, Quadripartite Vaults, Sexpartite Vaults, as well as the individual parts of Gothic churches, and the usual Narthex, Nave, Apse, Ambulatory, Side Aisle, Transepts, and lastly, Triforium Galleries. The cities and their cathedrals to be viewed are Mont. St. Michel in Normandy, the Abbey Church of Saint Pierre in Cluny, the Cathedral of Saint Lazare in Autun, Notre Dame du Port in Clermont-Ferrand, St. Denis in the Ile de France, Notre Dame in Paris, and the Cathedrals of Chartres, Rheims, and Amiens. In Avignon we shall discuss the uncompleted bridge, the Pont D’Avignon.
