To be remembered after death by a magnificent tomb was an ambition as typical of the middle ages as of the ancient world. Renaissance tombs recall elements of both and sometimes achieve effects that go beyond either. These monuments lodged in, sometimes very obscure, churches and cathedrals all over Europe constitute a great body of artistically important masterpieces central to the history of sculpture.
