Notre-Dame de Paris, 1345 | A cathedral of Art and history

Notre-Dame de Paris, also known as Notre-Dame Cathedral or simply Notre-Dame, is a medieval Catholic cathedral on the Île de la Cité in the fourth arrondissement of Paris, France.
The cathedral is considered to be one of the finest examples of French Gothic architecture. The innovative use of the rib vault and flying buttress, the enormous and colorful rose windows, and the naturalism and abundance of its sculptural decoration all set it apart from earlier Romanesque architecture.

La Biblioteca Apostolica Vaticana

Vatican Apostolic Library -BAV, official library of the Vatican, located inside the Vatican palace. It is especially notable as one of the world’s richest manuscript depositories.
The library is the direct heir of the first library of the Roman pontiffs. Very little is known of this library up to the 13th century, but it appears to have remained only a modest collection of works until Pope Nicholas V (1447-55) greatly enlarged it with his purchase of the remnants of the imperial library of Constantinople (now Istanbul), which had recently been conquered by the Ottoman Turks.

Like many painters of his period, his reputation diminished in the 17th century until he was rediscovered in the 19th century.
