about

The story of how the concept of a pantheon, a building honouring great individuals, spread across Revolutionary Europe and interacted with socio-political and cultural changes. Analysing the canon and iconography of each pantheon, Bouwers shows how the commemoration of war and celebration of nationhood gave way to the protection of elite interests.

Editorial Reviews

'Each case is well documented and skillfully studied. This is particularly profitable for her discussion of the Roman and Bavarian episodes, which are less well-known. The work is especially convincing when describing the specifics of each experience, which all together provide her model of the state monopoly of commemoration.' – Antoine Lilti, Annales
