& # 39; His burning feels like an act of liberation & # 39 ;: Rolling Stone Magazine criticized for promoting an article about Notre Dame on social media with a controversial quote
- The magazine spoke to historians and architects about the future of Notre Dame for an article published yesterday titled & # 39; How should France rebuild Notre Dame? & # 39;
- An interviewed Harvard historian, Patricio del Real, said the cathedral was so overloaded with the sense that burning it seems a liberating act & # 39;
- Twitter users have dropped the use of Rolling Stone as a promotional quote
- Many said that for Catholics Notre Dame never & # 39; too much & # 39; could have meaning
Harvard historian Patricio del Real said that Notre Dame & # 39; was so overloaded with the meaning that burning it is a liberating act & # 39;
Rolling Stone Magazine received a fierce reaction today after promoting an article about the fire of Notre Dame with a quote that described the disaster as an & # 39; act of liberation & # 39 ;.
The monthly interviewed architects and historians for a part about the significance of Paris and what should happen after the Monday fire, which claimed the iconic spire of the cathedral and most of its roof.
The article – titled & # 39; How should France rebuild Notre Dame? & # 39; – states that for some people … Notre Dame has served as a deep-rooted symbol of resentment, a monument to a profoundly flawed institution and an idealized Christian-European France that has demonstrably never existed.
He then quotes Harvard University architecture historian Patricio del Real, who gave a unique perspective on the significance behind the eruption.
& # 39; The building was so overloaded that burning it feels like an act of liberation, & # 39; Real said.

Rolling Stone received a lot of criticism because he had used this as a quote on social media yesterday and the post was quickly on Twitter & # 39; relate & # 39; – which means that the ratio between responses was higher than that of likes and retweets.
According to unofficial Twitter tradition, the more answers a tweet gets about likes or retweets, the worse it is.
Many Twitter users said they had found the quote, and using it to disrespect the & # 39; article & # 39; for Catholics, for whom religion is a vital aspect of their lives and who built Notre Dame to worship God.
Brittany Pettibone wrote: & # 39; Notre Dame is not just a building, it is an 856 year old Catholic cathedral, built for God, within which Christians worship Him.
Twitter users pointed out that the Catholic Church, which built the cathedral for worship, never & # 39; too much & # 39; could have meaning
& # 39; It can never be & # 39; be overloaded with meaning & # 39 ;. These architects can adopt their slimy ideas of redesign and flush down the toilet. & # 39;
Others wondered if del Real suggested that modernists were unable to use the & # 39; intellectual expression & # 39; understanding of historical architecture, and whether he & # 39; wanted to erase history & # 39 ;.
Although it did not apologize, Rolling Stone turned out to have a mea culpa – as when the following article was promoted on Twitter, the quote from del Real did not occur.
