On April 15, 2019, the world looked on in horror as the Notre Dame Cathedral was nearly destroyed in a devastating fire. Notre Dame de Paris: A Celebration of the Cathedraloffers a fascinating look back at nearly nine centuries of this landmark building that has stood as silent witness to some of the most important events in human history. A marvel of Gothic architecture, the cornerstone of Notre Dame Cathedral was laid in 1163, and construction was completed in 1345. For almost nine centuries it has served as a house of worship and refuge-a stalwart soldier that has survived wars and revolutions, hosted royal weddings, coronations, and funerals, and inspired Victor Hugo's literary classic The Hunchback of Notre Dame. With the cathedral wounded but still standing, the world now watches as the rebuilding process gets underway. Notre Dame de Paris: A Celebration of the Cathedralchronicles the history of this landmark building, from its impressive architecture and collection of priceless artifacts to its presence during major world historical events. Through gorgeous, striking, and sometimes rarely seen archival photographs, Notre Dame de Paris: A Celebration of the Cathedralreminds us all why this building has become an unofficial wonder of the world, lodged in the hearts and minds of people around the globe.

"This book is not a work of art history. It does not look at the construction of Notre Dame de Paris in terms of the complexity of its architecture or its sculptures; it does not go into detail about its leaps in technology, however innovative, nor does it well on the audacity of its 19th-century restoration, either to praise it or to point out possible errors. Although these topics are not overlooked, this book is primarily concerned with telling the story of Notre Dame de Paris as it was in the Middle Ages. But how can we rediscover in today's cathedral, now visited by millions of people from across the world, the medieval building frequented by the bishops and conons, the kings in their nearby palace and the Parisians who lived in the shadow of its towers and its spire? Notre Dame is a living building, one that has been affected by the twists and turns of history. It was neglected during the Renaissance, transformed during the baroque era, mutilated by revolutionary rage, idealized by the Romantics -- and so gradually its medievalpast disappeared under these successive layers of history. Let us begin by raising the veil, by leaving the present and returning to the past in an attempt to rediscover the initial project tha in 1163 led Bishop Maurice de Sully to construct a new building in a new style."--from the Foreword.

Notre-Dame has long stood as a symbol of Paris--people openly wept as fire swept through the iconic building. In stunning photographs, this volume celebrates the cathedral through the ages, from its beginnings in 1160 and construction during the Middle Ages, to its survival through the French Revolution and two World Wars, to its resurgence after the publication of Victor Hugo's novel The Hunchback of Notre-Dame; and, finally, its recent near-destruction. . . and the efforts to restore it to its former glory.

Originally published in 1903. PREFACE: To bring the book within the limits of class room use not a few omissions have been found necessary. Great care has been taken, however, to preserve intact the thread of the story, and, of the numerous digressions, to keep at least enough to show the authors style and special characteristics. Accordingly, no change has been made in the original division into books and chapters; where, as in a very few cases, a chapter has had to be omitted, a short synopsis of it has been given. The editor has endeavoured in the notes to explain the many allusions of the text. This is a fascinating novel of the period and still an interesting read today. Many of the earliest books, particularly those dating back to the 1900's and before, are now extremely scarce and increasingly expensive. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

Eric Barone, Bewusstseinsforscher, französischer Schriftsteller, Autor von mehr als 80 Büchern. Bewunderer der Notre-Dame de Paris, in derer vielmals meditierte und vor der er viele von seinen Büchern schrieb. Er wurde vom Brand sehr bewegt, da er es als ein essentielles Symbol für das Christentum sieht. Heute veröffentlicht Eric Barone diesen offenen Brief an den Papst Franziskus, in dem er die echten Probleme des Christentums darstellt: Reinkarnation, Glauben, das Macht der Messe und des Gebets, die Geheimnisse der Bibel, schwarze Magie und Exorzismus, Heilkräfte... Kein Thema wurde von solch einemeinschneidenden Autor ausgelassen. Inmitten der Polarisierung aller Autoren und Journalisten über den Brand eines Denkmales, präsentiert Barone dem Papstmit dem höchsten Respekt und als ein Mann des Glaubens die echte Frage aller Christen: VERBRENNT DIE KIRCHE ODER DAS KATHOLIZISMUS?

The Hunchback of Notre Dame

These outlaws find sanctuary within the walls of medieval Paris' greatest monument, the grand Cathedral of Notre Dame. "What a beautiful thing Notre-Dame is!" declared Gustave Flaubert of Victor Hugo's 1837 novel.

A mad priest, a vagabond playwright, a social-climbing soldier, and a deformed bell-ringer — all are captivated by a gypsy girl's beauty and charm. Two of them will betray her, but the others will remain loyal, even in the shadow of the gallows. These outlaws find sanctuary within the walls of medieval Paris' greatest monument, the grand Cathedral of Notre Dame. "What a beautiful thing Notre-Dame is!" declared Gustave Flaubert of Victor Hugo's 1837 novel. Originally published as Notre-Dame de Paris (Our Lady of Paris), it was conceived as a story of the cathedral itself, which functioned as the passionate heart of fifteenth-century city life. But Hugo's human drama rivals the Gothic masterpiece for dominance. Drawn with humor and compassion, his characters endure, both in literary history and in readers' imaginations: Frollo, the sinister archdeacon; Quasimodo, the hideous hunchback; and the enchanting outcast, Esmeralda.
