Gothic Cathedrals:
The Hidden Tails of the Exploitation of Men

Religion and church have always been criticized by scientists, physicists and philosophers because they sometimes use people and try to take advantage of their beliefs. Gothic churches, or sometimes referred to as skyscrapers of stone still stand till our days magically and gloriously.

But it didn’t stop here, following the incident a Cardinal from the Vatican visited the town, during his speech, Bishop Renault appeared out of nowhere with two monks holding a box with the Virgin’s tunic inside of it. He claims that during the fire two monks took the tunic and hided in the basement for two days and he described this as a miracle, as a sign that the Mary approves of the bishop’s decision to rebuild the church.

It is almost impossible to just rely on the people’s faith and spiritual duty to donate such amount. The criteria followed by the bishop were very smart to have control over the people and make them vow to do whatever they can to help rebuild the cathedral.
However, although they donated everything they have. It wasn’t enough; the bishop started seeking donations from all of western Europe.
