The Restoration of Bajor was an event that would supposedly take place if the Pah-wraiths were released from the Fire Caves and would lead to the rebirth of Bajor.

In late 2375, the Pah-wraiths sent Kai Winn Adami a vision in which she was told that only she could bring about the Restoration. Believing she was doing the work of the Prophets, she was also told that "a guide" (Dukat posing as Anjohl Tennan) would soon join her to assist her work. (DS9: "'Til Death Do Us Part")

The Pah-wraiths later revealed that they had sent Winn the vision about the Restoration, something which horrified her greatly. However, Winn later rejected the Prophets and began working to bring about the Restoration for the Pah-wraiths. (DS9: "Strange Bedfellows", "The Changing Face of Evil")

Benjamin Sisko was later able to stop the Restoration from taking place and Dukat was sealed away with the Pah-wraiths. (DS9: "What You Leave Behind")

In the first draft script of "The Changing Face of Evil", Dukat speculated that, when the Restoration took place, the Pah-wraiths would judge the archivists as "unworthy." The same script draft also included a line of dialogue in which Winn stated, "All I want is to restore paradise to Bajor," though this was ultimately changed to "All I want is to bring about the Restoration."
In a scene cut from "What You Leave Behind", a vision of Jake told Benjamin that "if you try to stop the Restoration, you'll be killed." That line was included in the novelization of the episode.
