Cross of Glory

The Cross of Glory is a wooden cross gilded in yellow gold and Glory gilded in white gold. It is the work of Marc Couturier. The Cross was installed in Notre-Dame's choir in 1993 and the Glory in 1997. This Cross and Glory were commissioned by Cardinal Lustiger, archbishop of Paris (1981-2005). His idea was to make the tourists aware of the Christianity of the place as soon as they entered the cathedral.
