The stained-glass panes, which are spread over 15 15-meter-high windows, show 1,113 scenes from the Old and New Testaments telling the story of the world until the arrival of the relics in Paris.
The history of the Sacred Chapel is closely related to sacred relics and objects such as the Crown of Thorns or the image of Edessa that were kept there. Having these sacred relics in his possession made the already powerful monarch the head of Western Christianity and allowed him to gain power and influence.
