An unholy row has broken out over the restoration of Chartres Cathedral, one of France's principal medieval landmarks.Restorers have even discovered a trace of the 1789 French Revolution with the words "republic" and "constitution" written in the cathedral's soaring nave, 80 kilometers southwest of Paris.The cathedral in the form it is in today, including the wall paintings, was built in a just-over 30 year period, ending in 1225 .Restoration work is focused on two choir chapels. The nave's overhaul is expected to be finished at the end of next year while the transept is also lined up for restoration.
