A world woke up in horror as they read about the awful fire in the fantastic Notre-Dame Cathedral in Paris. As the restoration of the cathedral nears completion, the Louvre Museum is hosting a special exhibition about the treasures of Notre-Dame de Paris. This collection includes important items for worship, relics, books, and other valuable objects given as acts of devotion. After the exhibition, these treasures will go back to the cathedral’s sacristy, a special room built for them in the 19th century.
The exhibition tells the history of these treasures through more than 120 works, showing their journey from ancient times, through the Middle Ages, and their revival in the 19th century, especially with the work of Viollet-le-Duc during the Second Empire.
