This thesis is a comparison between medieval Christian and Islamic sacred architecture, using the Great Mosque of Cordoba and the Cathedral of Notre-Dame in Chartres as examples. The paper links a formal analysis and comparison of the buildings, including their use of space, light, and decoration to an analysis and comparison of each religion's philosophy and theology. It includes a discussion of the role of Neo-Platonist philosophy on the architecture of each religion.
