Notre-Dame-Fire: Rescue Cathedral "not sure", say French authorities – Live News | world news

For me it is perhaps one of the most harmonious cathedrals that symbolizes the work of the craftsmen who built it – though it has been very popular and unloved over the centuries.

Notre-Dame de Paris is much loved by the millions of French and foreigners who come here every year. Nevertheless, they come back in and out again, I'm sure, without understanding exactly what this cathedral is.

It was severely mutilated in both the Renaissance and 18th century – for example, they did not hesitate to hack at the main entrance to get through the royal court!

Prosper Merimee, Victor Hugo, Viollet-le-Duc (Eugene), and (Lassus (Jean-Baptiste)) required all the work of the nineteenth century to restore gothic art to its rightful place.

The work in progress began at last – and it was high time and maybe even a little late. I went to the foot of the spire (before the renovation started) and part of the masonry was held by a grate to prevent falling …

The problem of Notre Dame is that it falls under several jurisdictions: the archbishopric, Paris, historical monuments, etc. This makes its maintenance difficult. I hope that national, indeed international donations will come to finance the restoration, as this will be very costly.
