Abstract

In the first decades after independence, Mexican national festivals were organised on the basis of the model of the Catholic Monarchy Festival: its main scenario was the Cathedral, the representation of the nation was corporate and thus heterogeneous and hierarchical, its fundamental interest, comity with the authorities, which confirmed the exercise of the Board of Trustees. The funeral celebrations in 1823, 1836 and 1838 also testify to the recovery of the culture of the relics of healthy soils. However, the civic ceremonies of September 1842, which celebrated President Antonio López de Santa Anna, at the same time as the culmination of the removal of the presidential body, contributed to reducing the punctuation of Catholic spaces and ceremonies, in favour of a military ceremonial and the more secular space of the Roman cemetery, and a more homogeneous national representation.
