The Entombment of Christ, or just Entombment, is the term in art history for the subject of Jesus being placed in his tomb. The subject was developed in Western Europe in the 10th century, and formed a common subject in cycles of the Life of Christ, where it follows the Deposition of Christ or the Lamentation of Christ, from the Renaissance sometimes being combined or conflated with one of these.
