Notre Dame Chapel,Paris, France
Tradition has it that Notre-Dame's first stone was laid in 1163 in the presence of Pope Alexander III.
The new building fell under the new art movement known as the gothic style (or the ogival style).
In 1965, there was an end to the 30 years of intense debates over whether to replace the nave's 19th century grisaille windows with colour windows made by Jacques Le Chevallier
Maurice de Sully was bishop of Paris from 1160 to 1196. From the time he was elected, he provided a pastoral, theological and spiritual response to his diocese's deep transformations by rebuilding a cathedral church dedicated to the Virgin Mary (Notre-Dame) and making it a bishop's church, a canon church and a baptistery. This project was the focal point of an enormous urban construction site
