The philosopher Jean-Jacques Rousseau (1712-1778) was one the figureheads of the French Revolution. He was originally buried at Ermenonville on the Ile des Peupliers, but in 1794 his remains were transferred to the Pantheon and interred in a tomb in the shape of a classical temple. Published in the 'Collection complète des tableaux historiques de la révolution française'.
