Presenter: Horst Richter

Since we will not be able to visit Notre-Dame de Paris for many years to come, we will start this lecture with a video about the cathedral highlighting what we have lost. After an exchange/discussion of this video I will follow up with a more personal memorial reflecting on the bearing the study of cathedrals – and then especially this Notre Dame cathedral – had at the beginning of my studies to become a medievalist.

Reflections about practicing the kind of science in which the presenter was involved before retiring and the kind of art to which he now devotes his time. Besides evident differences in problems considered and tools and languages adopted, these two apparently distinct undertakings appear as alternative approaches to fulfil a same intellectual endeavour.
