  • La restauración victoriana (en inglés, Victorian restoration) fue una etapa de remodelación y reconstrucción generalizadas y extensas de las iglesias y catedrales de la Iglesia de Inglaterra que tuvieron lugar en Inglaterra y Gales en el siglo XIX durante el reinado de la reina Victoria. No corresponde con el mismo proceso que se entiende hoy con el término restauración arquitectónica. Enfrentados a un contexto de edificios de la iglesia mal mantenidos, a una reacción contra la ética puritana manifestada en el neogótico, y a una escasez de iglesias que se necesitaban en las ciudades, la [Sociedad de Cambridge Camden] y el movimiento de Oxford abogaban por un retorno a una actitud más medieval de asistencia a la iglesia. El cambio fue adoptado por la Iglesia de Inglaterra, que lo vio como un medio para revertir la disminución de la . El principio era «restaurar» una iglesia a como debía haber sido vista durante el estilo de arquitectura «gótico decorado» que existió entre 1260 y 1360, y muchos arquitectos famosos como George Gilbert Scott y Ewan Christian aceptaron con entusiasmo encargos para tales restauraciones. Se estima que alrededor del 80% de todas las iglesias de la Iglesia de Inglaterra se vieron afectadas de alguna manera por el movimiento, variando desde cambios menores hasta la demolición completa y su reconstrucción. Personas influyentes como los arquitectos John Ruskin y William Morris se opusieron a una restauración a gran escala, y sus actividades finalmente llevaron a la formación de sociedades dedicadas a la conservación de edificios, como la [Sociedad para la Protección de Edificios Antiguos]. En retrospectiva, el período de restauración victoriana se ha visto bajo una luz generalmente desfavorable. (es)
  • The Victorian restoration was the widespread and extensive refurbishment and rebuilding of Church of England churches and cathedrals that took place in England and Wales during the 19th-century reign of Queen Victoria. It was not the same process as is understood today by the term building restoration. Against a background of poorly maintained church buildings; a reaction against the Puritan ethic manifested in the Gothic Revival; and a shortage of churches where they were needed in cities, the Cambridge Camden Society and the Oxford Movement advocated a return to a more medieval attitude to churchgoing. The change was embraced by the Church of England which saw it as a means of reversing the decline in church attendance. The principle was to "restore" a church to how it might have looked during the "Decorated" style of architecture which existed between 1260 and 1360, and many famous architects such as George Gilbert Scott and Ewan Christian enthusiastically accepted commissions for restorations. It is estimated that around 80% of all Church of England churches were affected in some way by the movement, varying from minor changes to complete demolition and rebuilding. Influential people like John Ruskin and William Morris were opposed to such large-scale restoration, and their activities eventually led to the formation of societies dedicated to building preservation, such as the Society for the Protection of Ancient Buildings. In retrospect, the period of Victorian restoration has been viewed in a generally unfavourable light. (en)

  • St Albans Cathedral before and after restoration in 1880. The amateur architect Lord Grimthorpe's rebuilding of the west front destroyed the cathedral's perpendicular architectural features, replacing them with his own designs. These are considered unsympathetic to the fabric of the building, and were criticised by commentators even at the time. (en)
