Zettervall, Helgo Nikolaus

Zettervall, Helgo Nikolaus (1831–1907). Important Swedish architect of the 1870s and 1880s, strongly influenced by Viollet-le-Duc. He was best known for his comprehensive restorations of Lund Cathedral (1860–80— which involved considerable rebuilding in which stylistic uniformity prevailed over the conservation of historic fabric), at Uppsala Cathedral his faith in concrete mixes as an alternative to traditional masonry of free-stones was misplaced. As Chief of the National Board of Public Building in Stockholm, he produced many works, all eclectic, and all interesting. As a church architect he also restored the Cathedral of Skara (1886–94), and built All Saints, Lund (1861–91), St Matthew's, Norrköping (completed 1892), and the Oscar Fredrik Church, Göteborg (completed 1893). He published an influential book on church-restoration, and also designed many fine ecclesiastical furnishings and fittings (those at All Saints, Lund).

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.
