Reconstruction of Assisi Cathedral
The bishop of Assisi witnesses a miraculous event (the details of which were not recorded), leading to the rebuilding of a Romanesque cathedral in the place of the old church. The tower of this cathedral still survives.
Second Reconstruction of Assisi Cathedral
The Romanesque cathedral of Assisi, only a century old, is torn down and construction begins on the current cathedral. Only the bell tower is retained from the 11th-century building.
Remodeling of the interior following structural damage.
