None of us who love Paris will forget the tragic fire that took down much of the famed church, including its elegant spire.
When that fell, live on television, people standing, watching the television in the restaurant we were eating collectively gasped.
And even more wondered -- what happens next?
After the fall, there was much discussion. Could the church be saved? (Quite possibly, with much work and expense.)
Were most of the treasures removed? (Yes, including the remarkable Rose Window.)
Would the spire be rebuilt as it was or would a new, more contemporary design take its place?
That question was up for grabs until just recently.
The original spire will be duplicated. This interesting article highlights the history of the cathedral post-fire and announces plans for the new spire.
