Reviews about Cathédrale Notre-Dame de Paris


Reviewed on Invalid date

The original French name of Notre Dame is the first Christian church built at this address. The site of Notre Dame has a tortuous history. In the 4th century, it was a Christian church to worship St. Stephen. In the 6th century, it became a Roman church. Twelve cornerstones of the church were taken from the site of the original Roman temple. It is also said that the cathedral was further rebuilt in 528 by Childebert I of the M&3; rovingiens Dynasty on the basis of pre-existing churches.

The only bell survived the melting down, and Notre Dame was in a thousand holes. Later, the church was converted into a sanctuary of reason, and later into a wine warehouse. It was not until Napoleon came to power in 1804 that it was used as a religion. Victor Hugo, a famous French writer, once described Notre Dame most poetically in his novel Notre Dame de Paris. The novel was written in the Romantic era in French literary history. After the publication of the book in 1831, there was a great response. Many people hoped to build the ruined Notre Dame Cathedral and initiate a fund-raising program. It also aroused the attention of the government authorities at that time to the tragic situation of Notre Dame's building. Starting in 1844, the restoration project was presided over by historian and architect Eugene Viollet-le-Duc, reproducing the long-lost glory of Notre Dame. In 1845, Jean-Baptiste-Antoine Lassus, 1
