What did Victor Hugo have to do with the Gothic Revival Movement in France (1830-1845)? Prior to the Revolution of 1789, French society was besotted with the ‘classic” style of architecture and design of ancient Greece. They disdained their own history and creations from the Medieval period, the magnificent Gothic architecture of their many cathedrals and churches. When the time came to rebuild after the ruin of the Revolution, a renewed feeling of patrimony for all things French was born, ignited by the publication of Victor Hugo’s novel Notre-Dame de Paris. Within the pages of his book, Hugo highly praised the innovative construction and soaring accomplishments of Gothic architecture. The book was immensely popular, and the Gothic Revival style swept the nation.
