Notre Dame de Paris: the medieval cathedral and its 19th century restoration

Tom Nickson talks about the construction of Notre-Dame and its medieval history

This presentation was first given by Tom Nickson at a symposium on 29 October 2019 entitled 'The fire at Notre-Dame: how should we respond?' organised by the History Study Group.

A series of presentations discussed the cultural variations of approaches to restoring national monuments through examples in history.

Tom Nickson is Senior Lecturer in Medieval Art and Architecture at The Courtauld Institute of Art, London. His research focuses on visual culture from the 12th to the 15th century, especially Gothic Architecture in England, France and the Iberian Peninsula. In June 2019 he helped to curate an exhibition of important early photographs of Notre-Dame from the collection of The Courtauld’s Conway Library.
