The Lisbon earthquake of 1 November 1755 occupies a canonical place in eighteenth-century studies, yet surprisingly little attention has been paid to what the rebuilding of the city meant, both culturally and materially. This article looks at the reconstruction of Lisbon in terms of its political, religious and social meanings.
