Sacred Geometry... used to hide messages in architecture and art. Masons loved to do that
Still taught today in some colleges, Dartmouth for one;
According to Painton Cowan, Rose windows use geometry in three different ways; manifest, hidden, and symbolic.
Manifest:"That which makes the most immediate impact on the eye. . . the web of complexity and precision. . . each space defined by a yet smaller
geometric figure - trefoil, quatrefoil, rosette, spherical triangle. . . within these can often be seen an even finer pattern woven into the glasswork
. . . right down into every fibre and corner of the cosmic rose."
Hidden: "The secret geometry of the relationships and proportions of the parts."
Symbolic: "A kind of shorthand, where geometric figures represent different things."
God The Geometer
So for those who say nothing was hidden in Medieval Arts.. I can 100% guarantee they are wrong
People got very good at secret symbolism in those days BECAUSE of the persecution of the Church. That tradition still lives today
