At the University of Applied Sciences in Cologne, Britta Rudolf
wrote her thesis about questions related to the conservation of
sacred objects. It might be possible to ask for a copy of this
thesis (write to Mrs. Christian, sekretariat<-a t->re< . >fh-koeln< . >de )

Later Britta Rudolf went to ICCROM in Rome and was involved in the
organisation of the conference "Living Religious Heritage". It might
be interesting for you to contact her. I am not sure if she is still
using her old email-address: b.rudolf<-a t->web< . >de. If this address does
not work anymore, please contact me.
