The Presence of the Absent. Memorials and Places of Ritual.

Petersson, Anna LU (2004)
Abstract
Memorials and places of ritual, such as funeral monuments, roadside memorials and cemeteries, can be said to reveal the politics of religious space as in the tension between sacred and secular and between private and public interests. At the same time they also reflect a given society’s religious structures, cultural differences and social orderings, as well as the changes in these matters over time.
