In this drone video you can see workers removing statues on top of the ends of the transept.

The scaffolding is interesting with the roofs and spire no longer there.

Re: Fire!

Why Notre Dame matters, in one Victor Hugo passage If we lose Notre Dame, we’re not losing only a sacred space, and not only an art treasure. Notre Dame is a symbol of human accomplishment, and more than that, of social accomplishment. It’s not the work of any one person, but of generations upon ge...

Re: Fire!

Bit of dark humor. On the official site, there’s both French and English.

From where I sit, the fewer pretty buildings are in the possession of the Catholic Church, the fewer shiny objects it has to distract people from the undeniable fact that the Church is, in the main, a cabal for the protection of child molesters.
