When fire roared through Notre-Dame in April 2019, millions of people around the world feared the iconic Parisian cathedral was lost. But the conflagration is just one chapter in the church's storied eight-hundred-year history (and one chapter in this informative book). Built on the site of a Roman temple to Jupiter, Notre-Dame survived religious wars, revolutions, the Nazi occupation of Paris…not to mention hordes of tourists and devoted worshippers. This illustrated tribute beautifully captures Notre-Dame's significance to Western religion, French history, world architecture, even literature and film (thanks to Quasimodo), creating a wonderful keepsake for admirers of the renowned landmark.
