Luxembourg has celebrated its sovereign’s birthday since the 18th century. When Grand Duchess Charlotte (23 January 1896–9 July 1985) ascended the throne in 1919, the date for these birthday celebrations became 23 January, and this date was declared a national holiday in 1947. But on 23 December 1961, a Grand Ducal Decree set the date of 23 June as Luxembourg’s National Day, when the country would officially celebrate the monarch’s birthday. National Day has continued to be celebrated on 23 June during the successive reigns of Grand Duke Jean (1964-2000), born on 5 January, and Grand Duke Henri (since 2000), born on 16 April. National Day is one of the symbols of the monarchy, together with the coat of arms and the anthem of the Grand Ducal House. [less ▲]

For the environment, humans and their way of life have become one of the most decisive factors of influence: their impact defines the geochronological era of the Anthropocene. These manmade changes include one specific type of sediments, namely that of human remains. In industrialized regions, the biologically degradable, organic matter of the human body is often altered by medical implants and pharmaceutical residues. Sepulchral practices may add other toxic substances. This article examines how the recent trend towards woodland burials of cremated remains in Luxembourg is embedded in ecological discourse and imagination, and asks whether it does provide an environment-friendly alternative to traditional full-body inhumations.

Cemeteries have been viewed in opposed ways as ritual spaces that either mirror society or present an idealized model of society. In this article, we propose an analysis of cemeteries as ritual spaces, focused on the case study of municipal cemetery Tongerseweg in Maastricht, among the most important monumental cemeteries still in active use in The Netherlands today. Drawing on historical as well as interview material, spatial and ritual studies, the authors argue for a new “Arena Model” to understand cemeteries as dynamic ritual spaces. Cemeteries do not only form an ensemble of ritual spaces that are reliant on pre-existing communities, they also evoke, produce and maintain communities. Codeterminants are the physical layout and a wide range of ritual markers that variously underscore, mitigate or even contradict the communities created by the spatial layout. Important actors pertain to municipal politics and administration as well as the users, their respective allies and service providers. The article further analyses the wide range of competing values that help to shape a cycle of cocreating plural ritual spaces as well as communities [less ▲]

Gestorben wird immer. Das gilt auch für das Großherzogtum Luxemburg und seine Nachbarregionen. Doch was kommt danach? Wo und wie werden Verstorbene zur letzten Ruhe gebettet? Und handelt es sich dabei tatsächlich um die buchstäbliche »Ewige Ruhe«? Beileibe nicht. Tote gehen auf Reisen oder ziehen um – manchmal gleich mehrfach. Kein Wunder, dass der Tod und das »Danach« nicht nur die Religionen und die Rechtsprechung jahrhundertelang beschäftigten, sondern ebenfalls in Film, Literatur und Bildender Kunst ihren Niederschlag gefunden haben. Dieses Buch versammelt 49 Texte rund um die Themenkomplexe »Grabkunst«, »Der Tod im Bild«, »Der Tod in der Literatur«, »Glaube und Recht« sowie »Tote unterwegs« und gibt einen Überblick über Begräbnisse und Bestattungsgepflogenheiten von der Frühzeit bis heute, auch im Hinblick auf die verschiedenen Glaubensrichtungen und ihre spezifischen Riten.

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.

This article offers a close reading of the parliamentary debates of July and October 1978, regarding the partial liberalisation of abortion in Luxembourg. It highlights rhetorical strategies and underlying moral, ethical and ideological lines of argumentation of MPs in a key legislation of the Liberal-Socialist coalition of the late 1970s. [less ▲]

This book offers new perspectives on Luxembourg history after 1940 focusing on lived experiences on the one hand and representations of gender in various media, on the other. It contains 27 articles. Some authors explore the significance of gender in politics, education and the arts (music, literature and film). Others investigate gender stereotypes in school books, advertisement, television and magazines. The book presents gender identities that transcend the male/female binary, yet shows that the latter remains hegemonial in many domains. [less ▲]
