From the time of Louis XIV whose motto could have been not only “I am the State” but also “I am the cultural State” to the present, the author delves into the complexities of cultural heritage in France. She also examines the administrative tribulations of heritage over time, the personalisation of administrative power with regard to heritage, the cost of protecting heritage, the specific kinds of expertise required to maintain heritage and the changing expectations regarding this subject – including innovations and deviations.
