Notre-Dame: How to Save It from Modernity

The roof of Notre-Dame de Paris engulfed in flames.


The destructive fire at Notre-Dame de Paris on April 16, 2019 was a terrible tragedy and many people around the planet felt a loss. The cathedral speaks to something of Western civilization, and it helps to define us. It follows that it is necessary to speak of the essence of Christian building, for inappropriate gestures and misunderstandings at large threaten the cathedral more than the initial fire.

I will try to briefly explain the danger by describing the difference in knowledge between medieval and modern.
