The Windows of St Severin

I never had a lot of use for churches. If you were to have read Screen Saver you would remember - and nod knowingly - that my mother and I, as soon as I had reached majority, substituted the Golliwog Lounge for Sunday mass.

It was on account of that that I never could understand the tourists' fixation with visiting the medieval cathedrals of Europe. I just knew that I had no use for that kind of thing.

As with many (perhaps most) things that I knew for sure that turned out to be laughably and totally wrong.

So here are some of the windows of my favorite eglis in Paris.
