France asks: should Notre Dame's spire be rebuilt as it was?

France asks: should Notre Dame's spire be rebuilt as it was?

The crown is believed to have been worn by Jesus Christ at the time of his crucifixion.

The fire destroyed most of the lead roof of the 950-year-old architectural treasure and caused its spire, which was added in the 19th century, to collapse.

Many religious artifacts were saved from Monday's fire, but uncertainty remains over how much irreplaceable history was damaged or destroyed. There is also little information on the condition of the cathedral's stained-glass windows and its many paintings.

Gabriel Plus said Tuesday morning that emergency services are now "surveying the movement of the structures and extinguishing smoldering residues".

Officials consider the fire to be an accident, possibly as a result of the restoration work at the cathedral.

"We'll be joining in the national bell ringing tomorrow night for seven minutes to show solidarity with Notre Dame and the people of Paris". He called the structure "a part of us", referring to the country of France, and he asked for help repairing it.

A public appeal for funds drew immediate support from French billionaires and other private donors, as well as from countries including Germany, Italy and Russian Federation, which offered expertise.

Cardinal Timothy Dolan, the NY archbishop, said New Yorkers were united in sorrow with Parisians, who can "count on our love, prayers, support and solidarity".

Along with the "embers", which went on sale starting at £0.99, the auction site took down over a dozen listings of shirt designs featuring the "Je Suis Notre Dame" slogan slapped across the chest area, or silhouettes of the cathedral draped in the colours of the French flag.

All three companies and the families behind them are already closely associated with the arts and cultural giving in France, which makes their rapid collective offer of half a billion euros to support a 12th-century Gothic masterpiece less surprising.

"They're going to have to consolidate the vault structure which was badly damaged by the fire and just be very careful about not removing any of the parts that are holding it together right now in the course of the restoration".

Patrick Lejeune, president of the Notre-Dame neighbourhood merchants association, told The Associated Press that the group's 150 employees fear for the future. "We will rebuild the Cathedral of Notre-Dame together as Europeans".

Mr Letoffe added that contractors working on construction sites had to follow strict guidelines when using electrical tools, and that after finishing for the day, contractors working with heat must remain on site for two hours.

France's historic cathedral can rise from the ashes and be restored to its former glory, according to Historic Building Architects founder Annabelle Radcliffe-Trenner.

Philippe says the government will take a series of measures to secure the financing and accelerate the renovation work of the Notre Dame.
