Chapter Summary

This chapter turns to the expressions of the national master narrative in other media. It is divided into four parts, and presents an overview of some particularly telling examples. The first part examines the manner in which the national master narrative continued to be developed and modified by focusing on the positive reception of Herchen's work by fellow historians. The second part looks at the arts, and analyses the work of the painter Michel Engels. The third part examines the role of the master narrative during one of the largest mass celebration ever to take place in Luxembourg: the centenary of Luxembourg's independence in 1939. The final part looks specifically at the political use of the national master narrative, and demonstrates how the ruling dynasty used it to its own advantage.

Keywords: Arthur Herchen; Luxembourgian history; Michel Engels; national master narrative
