Gothic, born in France in the 12th century, spread rapidly in the rest of Europe. First work was the Saint Denis Church where Abbot Suger, whose predecessor, was the construction of the building in 1144. Saint Denis Church in Paris has the most typical features of Gothic's art; to enormous dimensionality, pointed towers and interior lighting called, clear light of heaven. All of these features are in fact to reach God together with the church. Gothic art, like the Roman and Byzantine art before him, was often fed from religion. They all have their own specificity.
