Raschdorff, Julius Karl

Raschdorff, Julius Karl (1823–1914). German architect. As City Architect of Cologne (1854–72) he restored many of that city's churches and other buildings. He evolved an opulent Renaissance style in which French and German elements were mixed. From 1878 he was Professor at the Technische Hochschule (College of Technology), Berlin. He designed the English Church of St George, Monbijou Park, Berlin (1884), and the mausoleum of Kaiser Friedrich III (1831–88—reigned 1888), Kaiserin (1888) Victoria, Princess Royal of England (1840–1901), and two of their children, Princes Sigismund (1864–6) and Waldemar (1868–79), at Persius's great Friedenskirche (Church of Peace), Potsdam (1884–9), and built the Lutheran Cathedral in the Lustgarten (Pleasure Garden), Berlin (1888–1905—damaged in the 1939–45 war, but restored, although the dome and lantern bear no resemblance to the original), which replaced an earlier structure altered by Schinkel. The Cathedral contains a large crypt containing the sarcophagi of members of the Prussian Royal House, but the whole building's overblown Imperial Baroque style never gained it much affection. He published Rheinische Holz- und Fachwerkbauten des XVI. und XVII. Jahrhunderts (Rhenish Timber and Half-timbered Buildings of the Sixteenth and Seventeenth Centuries— 1895), Der Dom zu Berlin (Berlin Cathedral— 1896), Kaiser Friedrich III. Mausoleum zu Potsdam (Emperor Friedrich III's Mausoleum in Potsdam— 1899), and other works.

Learn more about citation styles

Citation styles 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, cannot guarantee each citation it generates. Therefore, it’s best to use 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:

  • Most online reference entries and articles do not have page numbers. Therefore, that information is unavailable for most 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.
