Evidence from the fabric accounts of Troyes Cathedral, coupled with an analysis of the forms of the building itself, will allow the reader to gain an acquaintance with the personality of a late Gothic mason, and to follow the sequence of operations undertaken during his tenure as master mason of the Troyes Cathedral workshop. The work of Jehançon Garnache is of particular interest since it involved critical decisions concerning the priority of flyers or vaults in the sequence of construction of the upper nave, and the techniques associated with the construction of a Gothic rib vault. It will be demonstrated that the severies of the Troyes vaults were centered upon mounds of earth, heaped onto high-level wooden platforms.
