Abadie, Paul

Abadie, Paul (1783–1868). French architect. In 1805 he joined Percier's office in Paris, and in 1818 became Architect to the City of Angoulême and the Département de Charente. He designed the Palais de Justice (1825), Hôtel of the Prefecture (1828), the School, and the Grain Market, all in Angoulême. His son, also Paul Abadie (1812–84), became Diocesan Architect to Angoulême, Périgueux, and La Rochelle in 1848, and in 1861 Inspector-General of Diocesan Buildings. He designed the Hôtel de Ville at Angoulême, but is best known for his somewhat drastic over-restorations of the Cathedral Church of St-Pierre (1854–82) at Angoulême and the Byzantino-Romanesque Church of St-Front at Périgueux (1852–1901), both of which owe more to conjecture than archaeology. He used the same style for his Church of Sacré-Cœur, Montmartre, Paris (1874–1919). In 1874 he succeeded Viollet-le-Duc as Architect of Notre Dame in Paris.

Citation styles

Encyclopedia.com gives you the ability to cite reference entries and articles according to common styles from the Modern Language Association (MLA), The Chicago Manual of Style, and the American Psychological Association (APA).

Within the “Cite this article” tool, pick a style to see how all available information looks when formatted according to that style. Then, copy and paste the text into your bibliography or works cited list.

Because each style has its own formatting nuances that evolve over time and not all information is available for every reference entry or article, Encyclopedia.com cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use Encyclopedia.com citations as a starting point before checking the style against your school or publication’s requirements and the most-recent information available at these sites:

Notes:
  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most Encyclopedia.com content. However, the date of retrieval is often important. Refer to each style’s convention regarding the best way to format page numbers and retrieval dates.
  • In addition to the MLA, Chicago, and APA styles, your school, university, publication, or institution may have its own requirements for citations. Therefore, be sure to refer to those guidelines when editing your bibliography or works cited list.
