Thoroughly documenting some 175 architectural drawings, sculptures, ecclesiastical objects and related works, this catalogue traces the transformation of the largest existing Romanesque basilica since its construction began in the late 11th century. Thirty brief essays discuss the history of the structure, debates over restoration policies, the 19th-century renovations completed under the direction of Viollet-le-Duc, and controversial recent de-renovations intended to rectify earlier alterations now deemed inappropriate.
