Viollet-le-Duc and the treasury of Notre-Dame

Eugène Viollet-le-Duc was a great architect who was inspired by 13th century religious art and restored the cathedral. He also, along with his predecessor Lassus, created the new sacristy (1845-1850).

He also personally designed the great cabinets and cope holders in the Treasury room, the vast lectern and the Easter candle, as well as several objects displayed in the cases: the work based on his designs was created by Bachelet, Poussielgue-Rusand and Chertier. The entrance also exhibits two of his own drawings: a portrayal of the ransack of the archbishop’s palace on 14 February 1831 and a sketch for the cathedral’s spire.
