Listen: Notre Dame, James Gnaws And Peres discussed on Newsradio 950 WWJ 24 Hour News
"Developments regarding the fire at the cathedral of Notre Dame. And Peres many say it's a major loss for France. James gnaws is the chair of the Oakland university history department. He spoke live with Jays. Greg Bowman and Brooke Allen. Understand about the cathedral is when it was built it was intended to be sort of the gem right at the at the time. When Paris was developing as one of the capitals of Europe. So it was intended by the king who commissioned it king Louis, the seventy was intended to be kind of the building the captured visitors imaginations in the spire, which is one of the later parts of it to be built in the early thirteenth century was supposed to be kind of a crowning achievement to it. It also I mean in the Snyder it collapsed once before it had been rebuilt of this fire actually contained relics of saints. I believe so it was also is made of oak would it. Also, I think was wrapped in lead and copper so you run into those problems as well. And I think what we don't know yet. But has to be concerned about is the spire sat right over the main altar of the church, which means if the spire collapsed, you have to seriously wonder what's going on inside the cathedral itself around the alter the may be too soon to speculate on. On this. If Notre Dame is a complete loss. You know? Is there any way could be rebuilt or a reconstructed or do you think it would just be lost forever?"
