    Think of how much this building has survived though--the plague, the French Revolution, TWO World Wars, COUNTLESS Paris Fashion weeks. This fire is just a blip in its long history. We'll rebuild and keep moving forward as before.

    A few years ago we stayed across the street from Notre Dame in a flat we rented. We toured the beautiful architecture and took many photographs. I was especially interested in how common the floors and lower walls were in contrast to the beautiful religious fixtures and sculptures. Such a shame to see this happen.

    One of the darkest days of this century for sure. An iconic monument like that, a symbol of our Christian beliefs, heritage and culture, a building which is so intricate and beautiful, having taken about 100 years to build, burning and collapsing within a few hours is just horrific. I live so close to France and I wish I saw it in real life. Hopefully at least some of it will be salvaged. Hopefully, we will rebuild and repair.

    That building has already been treated like shit throughout the past few centuries. Terrible destruction and vandalism during the french revolution as well as a couple bullet scars from WW2 and its still managed to stay standing through the help of multiple expensive and lengthy renovations. I don't understand how such a significant and fragile landmark could get set ablaze and not be put out before it was too late.

    A few years ago we stayed across the street from Notre Dame in a flat we rented. We toured the beautiful architecture and took many photographs.

    How did this happen? My Dad came in saying it was because of Muslim extremism but I'm not sure

    The fact that this was built (800?) years ago, before present time, and is burnt in a time where we have advanced quickly in all fields, is quite ironic. It survived poor times, times where people believe we didn’t know much about, and is partially destroyed in the time of the Internet.

    I’m not Catholic, but I’ve studied art and architecture and I’m really happy it looks so good structurally.

    I’m certain those columns will need to be examined for heat fatigue. They might also have to remove and rebuild the stained glass if the lead got weakened. This will take billions to do correctly.

    It’s worth noting that history will heal this wound.

    Right now, something hitherto unblemished and loved for it’s beauty has, for the first time, been tarnished; we feel the loss of that transition from pristine to something broken. And though we can fix it, it feels hollow, because we’re not impressed by new things being of high-quality and beauty (as my gf pointed out, China probably already has a Notre Dame or two somewhere).

    But in time, we’ll come to think of this as battle scars, or some synthesis of old-and-new building materials/designs (once neither are new anymore).

    Over a long enough timeline, history turns everything into character and story. So don’t feel the loss too heavily; everything that stood “the test of time” had to be tested.

    Did you ever hear the tragedy of The Hunchback of Notre Dame the Good? I thought not. It's not a story the French would tell you. It's a Church legend. The Hunchback of Notre Dame was a friend of the Church, so good and so caring he could use his strength to save lives… He had such a knowledge of the good in people's hearts that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The pursuit of love is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so strong… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his Chapel, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he saved everyone from the fire, and then could not escape at the last moment. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

    I’m certain those columns will need to be examined for heat fatigue. They might also have to remove and rebuild the stained glass if the lead got weakened. This will take billions to do correctly.

    It’s worth noting that history will heal this wound.

    Right now, something hitherto unblemished and loved for it’s beauty has, for the first time, been tarnished; we feel the loss of that transition from pristine to something broken. And though we can fix it, it feels hollow, because we’re not impressed by new things being of high-quality and beauty (as my gf pointed out, China probably already has a Notre Dame or two somewhere).

    But in time, we’ll come to think of this as battle scars, or some synthesis of old-and-new building materials/designs (once neither are new anymore).

    Over a long enough timeline, history turns everything into character and story. So don’t feel the loss too heavily; everything that stood “the test of time” had to be tested.

    Did you ever hear the tragedy of The Hunchback of Notre Dame the Good? I thought not. It's not a story the French would tell you. It's a Church legend. The Hunchback of Notre Dame was a friend of the Church, so good and so caring he could use his strength to save lives… He had such a knowledge of the good in people's hearts that he could even keep the ones he cared about from dying. The pursuit of love is a pathway to many abilities some consider to be unnatural. He became so strong… the only thing he was afraid of was losing his Chapel, which eventually, of course, he did. Unfortunately, he saved everyone from the fire, and then could not escape at the last moment. Ironic. He could save others from death, but not himself.

#4 Notre-Dame Cathédral in flames in Paris today

    Part of the thirteenth-century timber roof construction is now collapsing. What a nightmare.

    Edit 1: the spire has completely collapsed.

    Edit 2: the stained glass rose windows are destroyed as well.

    Edit 3: most of the important relics appear to have been saved from the fire.

    Edit 4: the Paris fire brigade says the fire is "potentially linked" to a renovation project on the church's spire.

    Edit 5: the cover of tomorrow's Libération: Notre Drame.

    Edit 6: French deputy interior minister says that saving the Notre-Dame "is not certain".

  • tradiuz

    I was going to make a joke but then I remembered this is actually very serious.

    This is the greatest tragedy in at least the last 100 years that did not involve loss of life. Incredibly sad. Hopefully it wasn't done maliciously.

    What a fucking tragedy. Stood for nearly a thousand years, surviving countless wars, only to be burned down by some idiot construction worker

    Yellow vests will be blamed for this in coming days, our media commentators on live streams are already making insinuations. The french government will use this to shut those protests down.
