Public Pantheons in Revolutionary Europe : Comparing Cultures of Remembrance, C. 1790-1840 Hardback

Part of the War, Culture and Society, 1750-1850 series

Description

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.
