MOTTA, Antonio. Brazilian cemeteries, tomb styles, and their associated social processes. Rev. bras. ciênc. soc. [online]. 2010, vol.5Selected edition, pp. 0-0. ISSN 0102-6909.

This paper focuses on the various levels of correlation between tomb style and social processes, particularly with regard to family composition and kinship, seated in the desire to ensure continuity in family order, through a common genealogical memory. It also seeks to analyze and interpret the logic of the burial transition, for a new family model based on individualism.
