This article uses a novel quantitative methodology to examine sepulchral material culture. Drawing on the theoretical frameworks of social spatialization and art as agency, the authors contend that variations in grave designs and materiality cannot simply be explained in terms of changes in fashion and mentality. Other factors also need to be taken into account. Using a digital data collection tool, the Cemetery Surveyor Application (CSA) developed at the University of Luxembourg, they compile a set of data encompassing all the material aspects of each grave in a cemetery in Luxembourg (Western Europe), the setting of their case study. The graves are dated from the 1850s to 2015. |The authors compare the chronological evolution of the most recurrent material features with a GIS-based spatial analysis of the same features. The results of the spatial analysis not only largely confirm the chronological study, but also allow them to be more precise (dating is often problematic) and include undated graves (a third of the sample). The digital data collection tool also allows them to compare cemeteries and to highlight variations in these that cannot merely be imputed to chronology, but also to spatial proximity and material agency.

Research in urban morphology rarely takes account of the specific forms of burial grounds. This paper offers a synthesis of how Christian cities of the dead mirror the cities of the living, and provides an overview of different Western European 'funeral epochs'. The shifting location of burial grounds realtes to major changes in town planning and building. Adopting a historico-geographical approach, micro-morphological transformatins of grave-plot forms and their cardinal orientations and accessibility are explored in the context of changing religious beliefs, rules of hygiene, and practical and aesthetic consideration. The role of cemeteries in fringe-belt development is presented, using Vienna as a historical case study. [less ▲]

Während des Ersten Weltkrieges gehörte Luxemburg weder in die Gruppe der kriegsführenden Nationen noch war sein Territorium Teil der Kampffront gewesen. Trotzdem wurden hier hunderte deutsche, französische und US-amerikanische Soldaten begraben. Die meisten von ihnen wurden in der Nachkriegszeit exhumiert und innerhalb oder außerhalb des Großherzogtums ein zweites Mal bestattet. Dieser Artikel zeichnet die geschichtliche Entwicklung dieser Soldatengräberstätten in Luxemburg nach. Zitierung: Kolnberger, Thomas.

Among the roughly 150,000 soldiers sent to the Dutch East Indies between 1815 and 1914, the Luxembourg contingent made up a tiny minority of just 1,075 men. Based upon extensive research into their careers, data on these soldiers provide further clues to understanding what drove Europe’s young men to become colonial soldiers. The results of this national case study will be compared with earlier investigations by Bossenbroek and Bosma on recruits for the Dutch colonial army. Similar to the Dutch soldiers, their Luxembourg counterparts had a predominantly urban provenance. However, in contrast to the Dutch, they did not have a strong military background, and it appears that fewer Luxembourgers stayed behind in the Dutch East Indies after their tour of duty. They were more attracted by the payments that the recruiters doled out in advance, particularly at a time of economic crisis, than in a career in the tropics. [less ▲]

Luxembourg is a 'delayed nation', as far as cremation is concerned. It was in 1995 that the Grand Duchy opened its own cremation center, only ahead of Malta and Cyprus in the EU zone (Orthodoxe Greece is a special case). While the discussion about the pros and cons of cremation is mirroring the general debate of the last hundred years since the introduction of this alternative form of burial and funeral technique in neighboring countries, especially in Geermany and France, the case study of Luxembourg also offers insights into the development of a small state shaped by its Catholic heritage. This mentaliy-argument is, however, only one side to be considered when investigating the history of cremation. Another decisive factor is the embedddedness of Luxembourg in a transnational context.

Disciplinary and regulatory governmental proceedings intersect, for instance when disciplinary rules and judiciary norms operate on the basis of suspicion and there-fore just happen to disenfranchise certain groups of people. The case study of Luxembourg’s practice of expulsion before the Second World War offers insights into the administration of ‘undesirable foreigners’ which was based on identifying women who supposedly infringed bourgeois moral gender order. Women from abroad of dubious reputation could become a double threat to bourgeois norms and values. Based on extensive research on archival funds, this article seeks to shed light on the intersecting quality of gendering foreigners and ethnicizing prostitutes in a self-reinforcing bureaucratic procedure leading to deportation.

This article discusses funerary politics in relationship to the political culture of the small state of Luxembourg in northwest Europe during the age of modernisation. During the long nineteenth century, the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg experienced several political changes which affected sepulcral culture, but this did not lead to a 'Kulturkampf' over cemeteries between the Church and the State as is occurred in neighbouring countries. Disputes were resolved at the local level. We apply small power theory to explain the relatively harmonious co-existenc of State power with the Catholic clergy, and hightlight the iportant role of local government. For the top-down introduction of cremation, we need ot change scale and focus on an urban elite setting the national agenda. Luxembourg was one of the last member states of the European Union to place body/earth burial andd cremation on an equal legal footing and its own 'national' crematorium only opened in the 1990s.
