windows of Chartres :
The Female giant Virgo
I am writing
about the mysterious giants depicted in the
stained glass window at Chartres Cathedral. It
has many puzzled exactly what message is being
depicted in the stained glass windows of
Chartres. In my last article I suggest that one
of the giants is Orion because he carries a club
in his hand. The stained glass window is
depicting the story of Noah and the Great Flood.
The giants are placed in the windows and some
believe these giants may represent the legend of
the Nephilim. The heroes of old who were renown,
the offspring of the sons of God and the
daughters of Earth. They were called the Giants.
The Nephilim were said to have given mankind
sacred knowledge which was forbidden. The
stained glass windows dating back to the
Crusades in the 1200's demonstrate the legend.

were on the earth in those days—and also
afterward—when the sons of God went to the
daughters of men and had children by them. They
were the heroes of old, men of renown.
fascinating is that in the stained glass window
is a woman giant. In the Bible, women giants
were not talked about. I thought the female
giant may be the constellation Virgo. The story
of Virgo does play in the myth about the
creation story of the Earth. Two Titan(Giant)
brothers Prometheus and Epimetheus were given
the job of creating
mankind and animals on Earth. Epimetheus gave
all the animals a gift but when he came to
mankind the box was empty. It was Prometheus who
gave mankind the knowledge of fire. He was
punished for violating the rules of heaven.
Pandora is also connected with Virgo. It was she
who opened the box that let out
diseases, war, and
famine on the Earth. She did give one gift to
mankind and that was Hope. The last goddess to
leave the earth was Astraea who carries the corn
stalk in her hand. It is her image we see in the
Constellation of Virgo.

Constellation of Virgo
home to a pre Christian cult dedicated to the
Virgin. Chartres has the zodiac represented in
stone and in its stained glass window. Megaliths
were located around the site but were frowned
upon by the Christian church. Some scholars
believe that the Temple in Thebes in Egypt is
orientated to Spica the brightest star in Virgo.
Many believe that the Notre
Dame (Our Lady) cathedrals in France were
placed in the same star formation as Virgo.
Virgo in the Middle ages was connected with the
Blessed Virgin Mary. In the Temple of Thebes the
lioness goddess name was Mut and some say the
Sphinx is a mixture of a woman and lion in
shape. It is said to have a connections between
Regulus and Virgo constellations.
Virgo has 26
known exoplanets orbiting
around 20 stars in this constellation. the
constellation Virgo has more confirmed
exoplanets than any other constellation.
Thebes was the
home of the great oracles. Chartres was built by
the Capetian family which included St Louis and
Blanche Castile. Chartres has a labyrinth which
bears a striking resemblance to some crop
circles. People pray while walking through the
labyrinth feel a special energy. People have
said while walking through crop circles that
they could feel an energy.

The one Giant
can be identified with Orion who carried a club
but I believe the other Giant carrying the spear
maybe the hero Hercules. Hercules was a child of
the god Zeus and a mortal woman. He was strong
and courageous. He too holds a club like Orion
but he carries a bow and the sagitta was a
great "arrow" or spear that killed the great
Hercules was a
great favorite of the Greeks and Romans. His
story is is that of a child born from god and a
mortal woman. The same story that comes from
Genesis where the
giants were created from the Nephilim.
The windows at Chartres are fascinating. They
leave us a record of how during the Middle ages
the legend of the Giants was viewed by the royal
families. i am just bringing my suggestions to
what the giants in the stained glass represent.
It still remains a mystery to this day. What do
