'More beautiful than before': The challenges of rebuilding Notre-Dame

For nearly nine centuries, Notre-Dame has stood at the epicenter in the French capital of Paris. The blaze struck much more than just a place of worship… How much do you invest in a national treasure that's not owned by the church but by the state? Who pays for the renovation; taxpayers, philanthropists, donors? And what kind of renovation are we looking at? Can the project meet that five-year deadline set by France's president? Our panel discusses the reconstruction of Notre-Dame.
