The publication consists of the papers presented on the 17th Session on Sepulchral Monuments. These regular conferences, organized since 2000 by the Institute of Art History CAS, are focused on sepulchral monuments as material artefacts of sepulchral culture and as works of art in the traditional sense of the word, with a factual or methodological link to the concept of Central Europe. Moreover, the meetings address topics which shed light on the wider context in which these monuments were created and functionally applied. Emphasis is placed on the interdisciplinary, inter-regional and inter-institutional aspect of the meetings. This concept proves successful, as evidenced not only by the high standards of quality and unwavering interest of prominent speakers from all over Central Europe, but also by the large audience each year. The contents, long tradition and high frequency make the conferences unique even in the European context. In many respects, they play a normative role in the sepulchral sector and are regularly shortlisted by the Web of Science in the Proceedings category.
