Notre Dame ...lost in the flames
« on: April 15, 2019, 04:26:03 PM »

On today's day 4/15/2019, the Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is engulfed in flames. Today we lose part of our history, part of our humanity.

The timing couldn't be less appropriate.


If I would be Catholic, I would even consider it a bad omen. Maybe it is.

The spire is gone, but it sounds like the rest of it has been saved.

Sounds like this has kicked the French into doing some more renovation work, at least.

As a kemetist pagan, I did not learn the news with joy ... my heart is crying because I visited her twice, admiring the mastery of so many masters and workers who, moved by undeterred faith, built an artistically sublime place. I condemn those who rejoice, it is not a church that burns, it is a symbol of the West, part of the patrimony of humanity, a part of us that risks being destroyed forever.

They were already working on it, I read.
Thank God it can be saved.

From what I understand a lot of the relics had been removed as they were renovating the place (Which is the suspected cause of the fire as of this morning my time not sure if it still is.) And those that wernt were reportedly saved.

When a restoration takes place .... always take away the relics, normal practice

Normal practice yes, but I think the cathedral was still open for tourists so not all of them were taken away. Thats normal practice for Cathedrals that out tourist hotspots.

Not a Catholic, but still saddened over the fact that so much got lost in the flames. It's an historical and cultural landmark.
A cathedral that has survived so much over the years...

It appears that the damages are not as bad as feared, and there is considerable monatary support already from France's elite. Hopefully, too, this was just an accident and not an intentional act.

I've no religous ties but I do care for preserving our history as a species.

the cross vaults have largely saved the cathedral, the little that has collapsed of them, however it can be reconstructed. The problem is the stability of the rock with which the cathedral is built.
