About the Book

Notre-Dame: A Short History of the Meaning of Cathedrals

In this short, spellbinding book, international bestselling author Ken Follett describes the emotions that gripped him when he learned about the fire that threatened to destroy one of the greatest cathedrals in the world --- the Notre-Dame de Paris. Follett then tells the story of the cathedral, from its construction to the role it has played across time and history, and he reveals the influence that the Notre-Dame had upon cathedrals around the world and on the writing of one of Follett's most famous and beloved novels, THE PILLARS OF THE EARTH.

Ken Follett will donate his proceeds from this book to the charity La Fondation du Patrimoine.
