A Gothic Synagogue - notice the blue Magen David and the Halo on top of the centeral Spire.

I'm interested in Gothic architecture and Gothic Philosophy and basically wrote almost all the articles relating to Gothic\Neo-Gothic architecture and Gothic\Neo-Gothic buildings and cathedrals in the Hebrew Wikipedia (he:ויקיפדיה העברית). The Gothic architecture is a masterpiece of architecture, engineering and art and is the highlight of men's stone-masonry. High and loft, slim and towering, rich and decorated, majestic and awesome, full of light and details - the Gothic masterpieces are work of art and great beauty. Gothic architecture appeard in the middle of the 12th century in France and than spread out to the rest of western Europe (France, England, Germany, Spain, Bohemia etc). It reached it peak during the 13th century and sadly declined during the 16th century for the Baroque. It regained its favor in the 18th century and 19th century in the Gothic Revival, inspired by scholars, poets, historians and architects - noting Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, Victor Hugo and more.
