  • 10:00 am – 11:00 am: Embalming in France from the Middle Ages to modern times or a new history of thanatopraxy - Conference moderated by Mélanie Lemonnier, Doctor in Ethnology (doctoral thesis validated on 29 March 2006 – Embalming and embalmers: ethno-historical study of embalming practices).
    As it involves filling the body by injecting a preserving solution through the arteries, thanatopraxy may be defined as an embalming technique focused exclusively on material concerns. Destined to preserve, temporarily, the body of a dead person while waiting to be transferred to the chosen place of rest or to expose the face to receive last respects, this practice is part of a long French funerary tradition that began in the Middle Ages. However, the choice of embalming is little known by the general public, including as a technique for restoring bodies that are in a poor condition. The diversity of terms used, the fluctuation of definitions given and withholding information on the process make thanatopraxy a difficult practice to identify. It is a practice in the shadows, behind which hides a body of stigmatised professionals, held to the initiatic secret of the pierced heart
    and thrown away blood.
