They are using the video game assassins creed unity to help rebuild because the cathedral was in it and is in good detail. They are using it to help rebuild it because it has such detail they need to help rebuild it as there were not many photos available to restore it

The frieze above the main entrance depicts Jesus flanked by his disciples, 6 on either side each holding something to indicate who they are (Peter with keys, Andrew with fishing rod, etc.) John the youngest, is the only one without a beard and the “disciple whom Jesus loved” looks almost effeminate. The fact this was carved 700 years before The da Vinci Code kind of freaked me out. Okay religious people, lay it on me. I’m just saying what it looks like.

I've been to Paris a couple of times, and had the privilege of visiting Notre Dame. What an impressionable work of art it is. It's massive structure holds so much artistic value, impossible to see all in one day.

My daughter and her family were in Paris when the fire occurred. They had been to Notre Dame earlier in the day and my son-in-law had taken a lot of photos in the area. He went back the following day to take a series of ‘after’ photos to show the devastation.

We were there about a year and a half ago! Obviously before the fire and it was amazing. Beautiful stained glass windows and so serene inside. Would love to go back to Paris!

Please don't take me wrong Notre-Dame is definitely a structure to be admired and is really sad about the devastation that the fire caused, But to restore it is going to cost 8 billion dollars and am thinking, you know how many children can those 8 billion dollars save from starvation and premature death??? What is it more important to human kind...saving lives or saving a building??? Can we be a bit empathetic and think more on others in need??? Remember the commandment "Love your neighbour like you love yourself" Just food for thought...

If York Minster in the UK is anything to go by Macron's response that the cathedral will be rebuilt in 5 years is simply unobtainable. York's fire was decades ago and they are still working on its restoration. However I wish them the greatest good luck in achieving what they can so the magnificent cathedral can rise from the ashes

Love Paris, I hope that it will be restored to its original splendours.

It saddens me that it burned; I hope it's restored quickly.
