What a tragedy to history. To think of the things this place has survived in the last 850 years to go up in flames by what appears to be a construction renovation mishap.

Regardless of religious beliefs, places like this are time capsules to the past and it’s so very unfortunate to see it destroyed.  But it also serves as a reminding that nothing is forever.

Because I like to think, I like to read. I’m into freedom of speech, the freedom of choice. I’m the kind of guy who likes to sit in a greasy spoon and wonder - “Gee, should I have the T-bone steak or the jumbo rack of BBQ ribs with the side order of gravy fries?” I want high cholesterol.

Absolutely - sad to see. I feel for whoever was at fault.

Is that where they kept their national championships from 1823?

Seriously though this is terrible.  Can you imagine the guilt for accidentally (hopefully) burning down a priceless building likely filled with priceless art?  yikes.

Yeah, that would be horrible. That’s the kind of thing that follows your family for a long time too.
