Surely Mike Stoll will tell about the earthquake of 1356.
Many houses and the choir of the Basel Cathedral collapsed.
Seized by panic, the inhabitants of the city fled to the open fields. Damage was detected up to 50 kilometers.
The city caught fire, and the roof of the cathedral collapsed into the nave, destroying the altars, organ
According to sources, the fire raged for eight days, until it finally ran out of food.
Almost all the churches of the city and forty castles in the surrounding area were damaged.
Reconstruction was soon able to begin, and by the early summer of 1357 Basel had returned to normal city life. By about 1370, the buildings destroyed by the earthquake had been restored.
Mike will take us through the Middle Ages and up to modern times, We will again hear many new things.
