Featured heavily in the news yesterday and today was the burning of Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, France. Admittedly, I know very little about this topic, aside from The Hunchback of Notre Dame written by Victor Hugo. Also, I was at one time a fan of the football team The Fighting Irish, of the University of Notre Dame, located in Indiana. I don’t really follow college sports anymore.
I decided to scour the Web for interesting bits of information to feature on my blog about all things Notre Dame. I hope that by reading the articles I have gathered below, you too will learn more about the cathedral, it’s cultural significance and place in history.
Notre Dame Cathedral was built on the ruins of two earlier churches, themselves predated by a Gallo-Roman temple dedicated to Jupiter
