I thoroughly enjoyed this course. I learned so much about cathedrals and their history. The professor was engaging, the forums were lively, and the imagery and music was beautiful and inspirational.
Really enjoyed it. The information and way it was presented was very interesting. I would even do it again as it had a lot of information in it...cant wait to visit the cathedrals we studied about.

This was a most interesting course. I had thought there was at least one more session from what Dr. Block said in the last video. I have been lucky enough to visit some of the cathedrals we covered in this course and to see other Gothic cathedrals in Britain and in Germany.

Exceptionally well explained, this course does not limit to architectural design and construction techniques, it is very complete since it includes historical, political and spiritual events that determined the specific characteristics of the Age of Cathedrals

Great course! Long readings and then he repeats the important passages in the lectures. Great videos. Though the fablio were too graphic. I hope he does a second session that compares the medieval cathedrals more to each other and updates the course material.

10/10! Well-structured, well-paced, not too easy, not too challenging. Writing little essays was a particular fun. I've learned a lot, enjoyed every minute and am very grateful to the professor! Would definitely take Age of Cathedrals II if there was one.

Super comprehensive, everything about the great cathedrals from history to mythical stories portrayed in stained glass to scriptural subjects portrayed. Many beautiful shots of both the cathedrals and their stained glass details. Fascinating.

A well crated and ambitious course. Plenty of information, images and videos, all of which allows you to have a clearer vision of the time and those who conceived these glorious landmarks.

A well presented course that was both interesting and informative.
It has given me a thirst for further knowledge and the system of peer review worked well. I look forward to my next Coursera course.

Age of Cathedrals is an excellent course. I enjoyed the videos and most of the readings.
The only negative is that some of the readings are very difficult to get through.

La única observación es que las calificaciones de los compañeros no deberían ser tan bajas por el idioma

I learned alot about the Church and architecture. Many of them were new to me. Not only that, but I also learned more about the early Christian life.
