Eugène Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814–1879) was not only an architect and restorer, but also left behind a rich work of art theory which, like his architectural solutions, was to have a great influence on his contemporaries. Viollet-le-Duc's work, his relationship to Gothic, his travels, his writings, his contacts to his contemporaries and finally the sometimes controversial reception are the subject of the contributions collected in this book.
