Murphy (art history, City U. of New York-Brooklyn) focuses on the first project of the French architect and theorist Eugene-Emmanuel Viollet-le-Duc (1814-79), the restoration of the Romanesque church of the Madeleine at Vezelay in Burgundy. Drawing on extensive archival records, he places the project within the government architectural bureaucracy that emerged in the July Monarchy and describes the controversy that arose from changes in its physical form, permitted uses, and place in history.
