The Cathedral of Notre Dame is famous because it was the first structure to be built with flying buttresses, which are masonry bridges that place the main weight of a vault or a roof onto an outer support. The use of the flying buttress allowed the builders of the cathedral to achieve a great height. With its elaborate ornamentation and stained-glass windows, Notre Dame became the model for the Gothic style of architecture, which was popular in northern Europe from the twelfth century until the sixteenth century.

Quite possibly Notre Dame. Yes, it would have been Notre Dame in Paris, although the building the cathedral was barely 20 years into the construction and it wouldn't be finished for another century. The first mention we have of Perotin is in "Anonymous IV" which was an English music student's notebook from ca.1280. Consequently there is no contemporary mention of Perotin during his lifetime, if he existed. Today, we use "Perotin" to personify the 2nd generation of Notre Dame composers - a period of amazing strides in 3- and 4-part polyphony.

We do not know the name of the first master mason of Notre Dame de Paris. The title of Architect, did not come into use until centuries later.

Music historians believe that the first sacred polyphony was written for use in the Mass at Notre Dame Cathedral, so it has become a landmark in music history. Polyphony is music with two or more melodic parts, such as harmony or descant. This was a great leap up from chant or plainsong, which employs a simple, unharmonized melody line.

Notre Dame de Paris (French for Our Lady of Paris), also known as Notre Dame Cathedral, is a Gothic, Catholic cathedral on the eastern half of the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France. It is the cathedral of the Catholic Archdiocese of Paris: that is, it is the church that contains the cathedra (official chair), of the Archbishop of Paris, currently André Vingt-Trois. Notre Dame de Paris is widely considered one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture in France and in Europe. It was restored and saved from destruction by Eugène Viollet-le-Duc, one of France's most famous architects. The name Notre Dame means "Our Lady" in French, and is frequently used in the names of Catholic church buildings in Francophone countries. Notre Dame de Paris was one of the first Gothic cathedrals, and its construction spanned the Gothic period. Its sculptures and stained glass show the heavy influence of naturalism, unlike that of earlier Romanesque architecture.Notre Dame de Paris was among the first buildings in the world to use the flying buttress (arched exterior supports). The building was not originally designed to include the flying buttresses around the choir and nave. After the construction began and the thinner walls (popularized in the Gothic style) grew ever higher, 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.The cathedral suffered desecration during the radical phase of the French Revolution in the 1790s, when much of its religious imagery was damaged or destroyed. During the 19th century, an extensive restoration project was completed, returning the cathedral to its previous state.

Notre Dame Notre Dame Since there is no "official" national champion in FBS college football, the answer would depend upon the criteria you want to use. According to the schools themselves, Alabama claims 13 while Notre Dame claims 11. But each school uses different and subjective criteria to determine which seasons are "claimed" as championships. Most researchers would argue that Alabama's criteria is somewhat looser than ND's, and that if the same qualifications were applied to each school, ND would have at least 13 as well. If you count the total number of seasons where ANY recognized selector chose Alabama or Notre Dame as champion, then Notre Dame has 21 while Alabama has 17. If you only count seasons where the school finished #1 in either the AP or the UPI/Coaches poll, the two schools are tied with 8 titles each. If you only count BCS championships, Alabama leads 1-0.

Gothic art was started around 1140CE in the french province known as L'Ile-de-France (Paris and vicinity) and grew to influence the rest of norther Europe. The most influential period in Gothic art was from 1150-1250 in a period known as the Age of the Great Cathedrals. Gothic style is characterized by luminosity and the filtration of light through stained glass in cathedrals as well as elaborate sculptural decorations on facades and transept portals. Gothic sculpture mean to represent scenes from the Old and New testament as well as catholic customs and traditions. During the influence of the Gothic style we see a rise in the Cult of the Virgin throughout northeastern European cathedrals. In gothic architecture we see a growing emphasis on a light almost skeletal construction of walls pierced by hundreds of brightly coloured stained glass windows. We see an emphasized verticality and the use of clerestory levels, quadripartite vaults, and flying buttresses. Examples of Early French Gothic cathedrals are: The Abbey Church of Saint-Denis, France Notre-Dame, Chartres, France Notre-Dame, Laon, France Notre-Dame, Paris, France Notre-Dame, Amiens, France Notre-Dame, Reims, France Sainte-Chapelle, Paris, France Saint-Urbain, Troyes, Belgium
