Title

Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc and monument protection: A case study

 

Abstract

This article analyses the importance and influence of Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc’s mid-nineteenth-century monument-protection approaches to saving architectural monuments that were received critically by both his contemporaries and later developers of monument-protection principles. A case study is used to demonstrate deviations in Slovenian monument protection, which has been historically and professionally committed to the conservation principles of the Vienna school. A number of procedures for restoring architectural structures in the sense of Viollet-le-Duc’s approaches were carried out in practice, not only after the Second World War, when such interventions became more common due to extensive damage during the war, but also several decades after that. The study shows that reconstruction measures are carried out for various reasons, but that they always reflect the historical context in which they are created.

 

Key Words
