Looking for the name of a science/cosmos documentary from the early/mid-90s that compared medieval cathedrals to super colliders.

In 1995, at age 16 or so, I saw a documentary about space, the cosmos, subatomic particles, and super colliders and they compared our modern hunt for understanding with that of the old cathedrals: super massive structures. The vibe of the documentary seemed more like an ethereal and mystic pairing of science and religion, with generous use of low note synthesizer sounds.
There was a male host and at some point he was walking down a spiral staircase. There was heavy reference to CERN.
My searches over the years have turned up nothing. Any idea what the name of this could have been?
