What a madness, what a loss

What a madness, what a loss! Just think of the magnificent rose Window from the 13th century. Century, which was twelve feet in diameter. In her fading beauty and religiosity of the Andes in breathtaking way. It is no more.

think of the feeling when you Enter this Gothic marvel, the force of its magnificent architecture a as a visitor in an almost magical way to lift the rail. The Notre-Dame of Paris, this stone has become a dream, has enabled us each time you visit a new in a version-less Wonder.

the fire in the night from Monday to Tuesday has not ripped a hole in the heart of the city of Paris, of which the most important Cathedral of Notre-Dame was, no doubt, and hopefully soon again will be. The Inferno has made us a people, moreover, in such a way as to be homeless, as we have seen, perhaps, only in the attack on the two towers of the World Trade Center in New York.

The Notre-Dame is a culture that is a model for Europe and the world.

again and again, we were looking at the pictures from Paris and those from the 11. September 2001 in New York by the head. Media history might be of importance: at the Time, we followed the disaster on TV, now on iPhone en miniature. Both in real-time. Both events are not going to let us. The initially bright as day in the night sky, the falling top of the Tower, the clouds of smoke, the water cannons, trying in vain against the flames.

The differences are obvious. While in New York with hijacked aircraft, led an attack on an American-dominated world domination has been executed, the requested yet thousands of people live, in Paris, to a certain extent the core of our cultural self-understanding in flames. While in New York the attacker from the centre of Islamist terror, was fought in the largest American city war of the cultures, there are in Paris, not the attacker and in this respect – at least according to the preliminary Findings – not guilty.

at Least not one that would be the political instrument of formalization. Even if the conscience of Stalkers on Twitter who have reported in the light of the fire immediately to word, would come in very handy. The cause is a trivial spark that was working at the renovation of the wooden roof floor in an uncontrolled sea of flames, according to the present state of knowledge.


resurrected The Cathedral of Notre-Dame dates back over eight hundred years of history It has Wars and revolutions. It was used as a wine warehouse, and many of her statues were destroyed. In it, Napoleon Bonaparte had himself crowned Emperor. It came with Would be a subtle Renovation in the 19th century. Century, made by the famous architect Eugène Viollet-le-Duc. And it was up to the Assembly one of the biggest magnets for tourists, who secularized by their mass-like this Church Appear to be in a way, Yes, desecrated, such as that is rarely the case.

The Notre-Dame of Paris was, and is, in spite of everything the Symbol of a France that had been in architectural, cultural and religious terms for the development not only of Europe but of the whole world the character of a model and still has. It is thanks to her age, also for the continuity of a cultural development that took place in the early middle ages. And now to be suddenly to an end? Anyway, the Cathedral in the fire storm has lost, literally, the roof, the us promised protection.

A consolation, that the side walls and the two towers of Notre-Dame of Paris have not been destroyed by the flames. It allows you to build up. Like a Phoenix from the ashes you will rise again, the Gothic Cathedral on the Île de la Cité, which has become at the Moment of their destruction, the Symbol of the Christian-Occidental culture.
