Paper Monuments for Antiquaries (Caylus, Winckelmann, D'Hancarville): Metahistorical Interventions

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


One of the central aims of the present volume is to contribute to the history of scholars’ monuments in halls of honour and pantheons, such as the Viennese Arkadenhof, and to work towards a typology of these spaces of remembrance. Such collective commemorative spaces necessarily extend beyond the individual
to a more corporative form of remembrance, no matter how closely the iconography of a monument might allude to the profession and achievements of an individual (as in the case of Theodor Billroth, analysed by Julia Rüdiger). In order to contribute to a contrastive analysis of these ensembles, I would like to focus on a somewhat different constellation, namely on paper monuments that were integrated in the published works of the author they were dedicated to. The
monument, in this case, becomes a paratext to the scholarly output of the honoured person
