Reynaud de Cormont
Reynaud was a son of Thomas de Cormont. In 1228 he succeeded his father as maître d'œuvre of the cathedral of Amiens (France). Reynaud built the great vaults according to the plans of Robert de Luzarches, probably also the choir, the Chapelle de la Vierge, the central window of the apse (1269), the northern arm of the transept with its rose window, and commenced the southern arm, which was not finished until 1296. His central tower was burned in 1527 and rebuilt in 1529.
