Alone in Ste. Chapelle: Pondering the Relative Cost of Thorns and Glass

To film Sainte-Chapelle in Paris, we had to get there at 7:30, before the public opening hours. As the crew was downstairs filming the lower section, I realized what a lucky person I was to greet the sun through glorious medieval stained glass. My coffee that morning was the light that bathed me, all alone, in the most exquisite Gothic space ever created. I had to share it. In my excitement as I videoed this, I flip-flopped one of my tour guide facts, saying that they "paid more for the chapel than they did for the crown," when the truth is much more striking: The king actually paid more for what he thought was Jesus' "crown of thorns" then the entire cost of building this luxurious chapel to house the precious relic.
