Notre Dame De Paris: A Short Description of the Great French Cathedral, with a History of Christian Churches Which Preceded It
Paperback - English

This guidebook to Notre Dame cathedral, originally published in 1902, offers a history of the great Parisian structure accompanied by over forty detailed photographs and drawings.

Charles Hiatt approaches Notre Dame in multiple ways; first, its importance as a religious and communal building, a place for Christians to congregate and pray, or celebrate public events. Secondly, its role as an architectural centerpiece of Gothic grandeur, showcasing the beautiful design and the cultural glory of the French capital. Thirdly, we are treated to the social aspect; the immense pride residents of Paris took in the great church, and its role before, during, and after the great upheaval of the French Revolution.

Throughout his narrative, Hiatt employs photograph and intricate hand-drawn sketches of the cathedral design. The reader will gain an appreciation of the engineering and artistic excellence represented by the towering spire, the stone archways, the vaulted ceilings. The major portions of the cathedral are all examined; the exterior designs, the entrances, the nave, choir and transepts. Hiatt writes in a detailed but enthusiastic style, perfect for the curious visitor.

It is with pride that the publisher reprints this excellent guide anew, following the tragic fire that damaged Notre Dame cathedral in April of 2019.
