The Vatican (though not gothic ) was paid for by selling indulgences all over Europe. A kind of get-out-of-hell-free-passes for rich people. All that money handling and powerplay was a serious force in triggering the Protestant Reformation.

So whoever thinks that faith moves mountains, think about what money can do!
Who said I forgot the huge amounts of money involved in the construction of cathedrals? Do you think I’m really that naïve?

We were simply discussing a different matter; how these amazing buildings were possible to have been built centuries ago, solely with hand labor and almost no machinery in a time when most of the population was illiterate and piously believed in what the church dictated. People build these “houses of God” because they had faith.

But as you said, those who could, bought their way into heaven with money, and those who couldn’t bought it with labor. In the end, they all did it because they had faith… and faith my friend, does move mountains, be it in the middle ages or today. All one needs to do is to believe in a higher existence other than our own…

PS: I’m not a religious person.
