The Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris is much more than a place to gather and pray. Its original purpose was to instruct the illiterate public on the Bible stories through statues, stained glass, and paintings.
Through a PowerPoint presentation, Dr. Lorrie Wenzel will share the art and imagery, the stories over the years, as well as the future facing the Cathedral after the fire in 2019. What was lost and what can be salvaged? Having spent over 60 hours in the Cathedral, she has a unique perspective on the artistry of Notre Dame.
Dr. Lorrie Wenzel is a former scripture professor, church historian, and noted expert in the biblical imagery in sacred spaces. She and her husband recently returned from a two-month trip to Europe, studying over 40 cathedrals and churches in six countries. She visited Notre Dame in March 2022.
