This book sheds new light on the interplay of the funerary arts, tomb cult and the mentalities that shaped them in France, over a period famous for profound and often violent change. Using previously untouched archival sources and period published material, this study proposes new and vital contexts for nineteenth-century France's celebrated funerary projects, often profoundly reinterpreting them, and brings to light significant enterprises that are little known today.
