Abstract
The Cistercian nunnery of Clairefontaine was founded in the 13th century by the Counts of Luxembourg. During the 13th and the 14th century the abbey served as burial ground of the Luxembourgian dynasty. The foundation of the abbey meant the creation of a material framework for the remembrance of the dead. In the meantime the noble burial ground and the tombs of the dead became lieux de mémoire, a part of the collective memory reminding not only the success of an elite family but also the emergence of an Luxembourgian political and cultural identity. The long history of the site illustrates the way this memory was perceived, maintained and rewritten by various social groups for their own social aspirations. Monastic space and both material and immaterial culture were altered and structured by this process.
