Cathedrals of the Middle Ages were massive structures often taking up to a century or more to build. These massive, and expensive, structures represented the dedication to Gods glory that the populous of the community felt. Cathedrals also represented the importance the community held in their country. It was a virtual necessity to have a cathedral if a city was to be considered an important civic center.
