As a Catholic    in a Protestant nation, he was interred in a graveyard used mainly for orphans in Adolf Fredriks kyrka in Stockholm. His manuscripts came into the possession of Claude Clerselier , Chanut's brother-in-law, and "a devout Catholic who has begun the process of turning Descartes into a saint by cutting, adding and publishing his letters selectively."  In 1663, the Pope placed his works on the Index of Prohibited Books . In 1666 his remains were taken to France and buried in the Saint-Étienne-du-Mont . In 1671 Louis XIV prohibited all the lectures in Cartesianism . Although the National Convention in 1792 had planned to transfer his remains to the Panthéon , he was reburied in the Abbey of Saint-Germain-des-Prés in 1819, missing a finger and skull.  His skull is on display in the Musee de l'Homme in Paris.
