During his catechesis the pope reflected on the role of cathedrals, the most important artistic creations that came out of the Medieval period.
“The two great architectural styles of the Middle Ages demonstrate how beauty is a powerful means to draw us closer to the Mystery of God.”
The pope explained that Romanesque cathedrals are particular because of their solidness and their educational. Gothic cathedrals, on the other hand are much more luminous as they were intended to communicate the desire of finding God.
