Lets put it this way. We wouldn't have gone to war over it which resulted in so much more loss of life.

That was my first thought. Not sure how a construction crew sets it on fire. Unless they were installing Nest thermostats or something.

I don't know what country you're talking about. I'm talking about what I know and see. Here in Chartres, the centre of the stained glass windows of France, with the particular blue of Chartres (all my Corvettes are blue), the restorations are supervised by the State and UNESCO, made according to the techniques of the period in question. Moreover, there is a medieval festival here every year in May and this is well explained. Here is one of the leaders of stained glass in my area, even in USA, he is known, but there are many small craftsmen. https://www.ateliers-loire.fr/english/page.php

For example, the fountains and pipes of Versailles are leaded and yet it is forbidden and the restoration is done with lead as under Louis XIV, believe me. There are exceptions for this type of histotic monuments

yes, as old incredibly built structures go it is a pity to see something like this happen. But, as I mentioned in another post I wonder how many lives were lost building this structure, and at what cost to those people of the times knowing what conditions were forced upon them by the ruling class, i.e. the answer to all man kinds problems the Catholic Church . . .

Persons of interest #1 and #2. They wouldn't be smiling if it was the mosque at Mecca I'd wager.

From Drudge:
This relates to 2016.

If the fire was caused by moslems, this will be really big.......probably too big for the French government to allow to be publicized.

I have been there twice; it is a terrible loss to history. No, I am not Catholic.

My my guess is Mudslimes are responsible.

OTOH, it was probably just “some people did something” .......

This was just released 15 mins ago:
The Paris prosecutor’s office has opened an investigation into the devastating fire at Notre Dame Cathedral, a spokesperson told CNN on Monday.

Prosecutors will be investigating an "involuntary destruction by fire,” the spokesperson said.
The use of "involuntary" makes it sound like they suspect it was intentionally set.

Sitting at ATL right now, but wife is telling me she saw it being reported that there have been 14 or 15 church fires in France over the last year or two. They're keeping it quite. I bet they are dancing in the street over in muzzieville.

Grinders, torches, welders, etc. It does happen.

'Islamic Lightning' was the first thing that came to my mind, as well. The very first thing.

A church is a congregation of believers in Christ, not a building.
