Story time cathedrals
The visitor of the building site of a cathedral in construction passes in front of stone cutters workmen. He stops near the first:

"That are you doing?"
"I am earning my living!" quietly answers the man, without raising the head. The second stone mason which he questions in the

same way, answers without hesitating: "I am cutting a stone." With the same interrogation, the third answers the visitor: "I am

building a cathedral!"
That one was a companion.
The current cathedral is the result of a work of several centuries, which began around 1200 to be completed in the middle of the

16th century. It constitutes a jewel of the Gothic style, of which it presents all the aspects.


Une histoire du temps des cathdrales
Le visiteur du chantier d'une cathdrale en construction passe devant des ouvriers tailleurs de pierre. Il s'arrte auprs du premier :

"Que fais-tu ?"
"Je gagne ma vie !" rpond sobrement l'homme sans relever la tte. Le deuxime tailleur de pierre qu'il interroge de la mme faon

rpond sans hsiter : "Je taille une pierre." A la mme interrogation, le troisime rpond au visiteur : "Je construis une cathdrale !"
Celui-l tait un compagnon.
La cathdrale actuelle est le rsultat d'un travail de plusieurs sicles, qui dbuta aux environs de 1200 pour s'achever au milieu du

16e sicle. Elle constitue un joyau du style gothique, dont elle prsente tous les aspects.
