Having crossed the river, Julian and his wife settle on the banks to help any travellers in distress. They build a hospital and hostelry which will welcome all strangers. Julian is up a ladder taking a wooden beam from his wife to construct the building. Section of Julian and his wife building a hostelry on the banks of a river, 1215-25, from the Life of St Julian the Hospitaller window in the chapel of St Julian in the ambulatory of Chartres Cathedral, Eure-et-Loir, France. Chartres cathedral was built 1194-1250 and is a fine example of Gothic architecture. Most of its windows date from 1205-40 although a few earlier 12th century examples are also intact. It was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1979. Picture by Manuel Cohen
