Begun in and mostly completed by , Notre Dame is an important example of French Gothic architecture, sculpture and stained glass. The Notre Dame is the most popular monument in Paris and in all of France, beating even the Eiffel Tower with 13 million visitors each year. But the famous cathedral is also an active Catholic church, a place of pilgrimage, and the focal point for Catholicism in France – religious events of national significance still take place here.
Notre-Dame’s first version was a “magnificent church” built by Childebert I, the king of the Franks at the time, in , and was already the cathedral of the city of Paris in the 10th century. However, in , having become the “parish church of the kings of Europe,” Bishop Maurice de Sully deemed the building unworthy of its lofty role, and had it demolished. Construction of the west front, with its distinctive two towers, began in around before the nave had been completed.
Over the construction period, numerous architects worked on the site, as is evidenced by the differing styles at different heights of the west front and towers. Between and , the fourth architect oversaw the construction of the level with the rose window and the great halls beneath the towers. The towers were finished around and the cathedral was finally completed around During the reigns of Louis XIV and Louis XV at the end of the 17th century the cathedral underwent major alterations, during which many tombs and stained glass windows were destroyed.
In , the cathedral fell victim to the French Revolution. Many sculptures and treasures were destroyed or plundered; the cathedral was rededicated to the Cult of Reason and later to the Cult of the Supreme Being.

Porcelain de Paris Really more of a regional name than that of a specific maker. The problem is that there are so many companies of similar style (one of my book lists under the Paris heading) and because of that it is almost impossible to tell which one of them made a particular piece unless they are marked.
The general consensus of even the most doubting researchers is to accept a ” ” date as the beginning of the “undisputed” or documented history of the Shroud of Turin. This also happens to coincide with the approximate date determined by the carbon dating of the cloth. Although there is a significant amount of evidence supporting the Shroud’s existence prior to the mid ‘s, much of it is, in fact, “circumstantial” and remains mostly unproven.
In an effort to bring factual information to the viewers of this website, I am including here only the undisputed history as accepted by most scholars. I am also limiting the scope of this history to only the more significant events. A completely detailed Shroud chronology can be found in the book titled “The Blood and the Shroud,” by Ian Wilson, that includes the earlier, more speculative and “circumstantial” material as well. It is available directly from Amazon. I wish to include a special note of thanks to Ian Wilson for providing his detailed chronology of Shroud history circa as the basis for this page and allowing me to share it with you on this website.
Ian is a highly respected Shroud researcher and noted author. His many books are listed on the “Shroud Booklist” page of this site.

Contact The History of the Folding Bike There have been many who have laid claim to the invention of the folding bike. Humorously, a bike manufacturer who shall remain nameless so as to not unduly embarrass them audaciously claims on their website to have produced the world’s first folding bike in Wishful thinking by their marketing department I suppose.
The truth is that the folding bike has been around for considerably longer than one might imagine and most claims of being the first are erroneous. First things first though, you can’t have a folding bike without the invention of the bicycle itself. So a very short history lesson on the bicycle is in order. Here again we have some disputed claims of invention and historians will probably never be able to identify the exact moment of invention. For a while some had claimed that Leonardo Da Vinci invented the bicycle based on a sketch found in his Codex Atlanticus.
However, this sketch was later determined to be a forgery, though many historical accounts written before this forgery was discovered still credit Da Vinci as the inventor of the bicycle. There were a few “pre-bicycles” invented before the appearance of what one would recognize as a bicycle. The first of these was probably the “Celerifere” developed by a French count named Mede de Sivrac in It consisted of two wheels connected by a beam and was decorated to look like a horse or a lion.

The western facade illuminated at night The spire and east side of the cathedral The north rose window is a fine example of Gothic Rayonnant style. Notre-Dame de Paris was among the first buildings in the world to use the flying buttress. The building was not originally designed to include the flying buttresses around the choir and nave but after the construction began, the thinner walls grew ever higher and stress fractures began to occur as the walls pushed outward.
In response, the cathedral’s architects built supports around the outside walls, and later additions continued the pattern. Many small individually crafted statues were placed around the outside to serve as column supports and water spouts. Among these are the famous gargoyles , designed for water run-off, and chimeras.
The statues were originally colored as was most of the exterior. The paint has worn off.
