    At a certain point it becomes a obvious cut down. If it is brought up then it can be deleted. I get sick of reading about the complaints against Millennials. Once again if the topic of the thread is Notre Dame burning what relevance would this have? None and so if deleted well that is the way the ball bounces.

    I consider the source. Inappropriate.

    As a "manischt" I would agree.
    Could certainly hold 400 year old grudge, but dont.

    The loss of Notre Dame is beyond sad. Perhaps a galvanizing moment.
    Time will tell.

    Compare to Twin Towers////

    Strange how sky lines elicit differing donation responses.

    Im not sure I buy into that.
    No offense, but that cathedral is a far more significant HISTORICAL piece.

    The twin towers, and the amazing loss of life there was something entirely different.

    I can not find it. it may have even been on Practical Machinist. There were photos showing the attic of a cathedral that burned the roof around 1850. It think it was French. They made the new roof structure of riveted iron beams and straps. looked similar to a wooden canoe build. Then covered with cooper sheet. Looked just like the original from outside. very similar to what I expect they will do for Notre Dame.

    I think it was 1836 or 1863

    But the twin towers weren't ''owned'' by the 2nd largest religion in the world, ………………..and I'll lay a pound to a pinch that the Vatican has more ''emotional clout'' than all of New York city and Washington put together, ……….oh and I've never heard of any couples including a trip to the top of the Twin Towers as part of a dirty weekend in New York.

    If you ever get reason to be up a old church, you will get why this one burning and getting rebuilt is a rarity. What looks good from the ground is often a pretty sorry old condition 40+ feet up.

    Gotta remember a lot of churches etc of this vintage were built on nothing like modern foundations, hence its common for cracks to open up and its not uncommon for major disassembly and rebuilds just to keep the things standing. The lead on the roof is the cheap bit!

    As to oak and such, large oaks are readily available in France, its not the problem you think it is if you have the money. Oaks have been farmed as much as soft woods in some areas for several hundred years.

    That one was Chartres: Chartres Cathedral - Wikipedia

    Scroll down to middle: the buttresses and roof of Chartres cathedral | France zone at abelard.org

    This is at least the 5th church on the site. Chartres Cathedral - Wikipedia
