The author analyses the forms of state funerals organised for the rector, the secretary, and the archbishop of Dubrovnik, and the bishop of Ston in the 17th and 18th centuries. In doing so, she points to the transformation of these rituals through the separation in the ceremony of the “private” from the “official”. Based on the introduction of the funeral effigy, she studies different layers of the ritual and the theatrical aspect of the ceremony. By comparing it to other European environments, the author establishes and interprets specific features of the funeral rituals of Dubrovnik and emphasises their value in conveying the image of authority and order.
