Editorial Reviews


Erasmo offers a richly detailed analysis of how ancient Grecian and Roman death customs have exerted influences upon the funeral rites of people today.... A meaningful synthetic blending of information about classical and contemporary death and burial practices that should provide great enlightenment to students of thanatology. Highly recommended."--CHOICE
