Meet The New Bells Of Notre Dame

The nine bells, replacing Notre Dame's famously out-of-tune set, were made the medieval way. (With FIRE.)

The bells were designed to have the same weight, diameter, and sound as Notre Dame's bells from the French Revolution, which were melted and used as cannons.

Each bell has a unique look and pattern. But all have the same inscription — "Via viatores quaerit," Latin for "I am the path looking for travelers."
