TheoPhilos focuses on the theoretical foundations and the overarching frameworks of conservation, restoration and preservation practice in our globalizing world. As these foundations and frameworks shift in response to contemporary challenges and developments, TheoPhilos aims to establish and strengthen the integrated theoretical basis for all those involved with cultural heritage, drawing together the contributions of multiple disciplines.TheoPhilos Mission Statement
