The topic of this thesis is the restorative intervention of an architect Herman Bollé on the Franciscan church in Zagreb, from year 1884. to 1902. Also discussed was the importance of the church and its monastery complex in the history of the Province of St. Cyril and Methodius to which it belongs. The church is a gothic building, dating from the 13th century, restored in the baroque style in 17th and the 18th century, where its importance was further emphasized with Herman Bollé's restoration in the late 19th century. The work is divided into ten chapters through which the historical changes in the property are discussed through a variety of devastations, of which the most powerful one was that in year 1880 when Zagreb was struck by a major earthquake. By hiring an architect Herman Bollé, who worked on the restoring the original gothic style, the church was given a new dimension. Reconstruction that followed, most importantly in the 1960's when the church's stained glass windows by the artist Ivo Dulčić were implemented that further complement the interior harmony, ultimately led to the church of St. Francis being a very valuable historical and artistic object in the history of Zagreb. It reflects the history of conservation and restoration theory and practice. The Franciscan church situated on the Kaptol is a testimony of stylistic restoration and post war creative preservation.
