The head of the Quai d’Orsay, France’s top diplomat, Maurice Gourdault-Montagne, is joined by the architect Amanda Levete, Lindy Grant, Professor of Medieval History at the University of Reading and the francophile catholic travel writer, Patrick Marnham. They reflect on the fire that destroyed the roof and spire of Notre Dame, the significance and power of the cathedral in French life and the global Catholic communion, and the coming moment of renewal. Chaired by Peter Florence.
