Editorial Reviews

Review

"Linked by an interest in ghosts from long ago, historians from England, Scotland, and the US look at how the dead remained integral to the communities of late medieval and early modern Europe." Reference & Research Book News

"The Place of the Dead contains path-breaking essays that illuminate important themes in social, religious, and family history. Undergraduates will find them accessible and well worth reading for lively class discussions." Philip F. Riley, History

"an especially useful introduction to pre-modern European culture and society" Comitatus Vol 32 2001

Book Description

Although much has been published on the social history of death, this is the first book to give a comprehensive account of attitudes towards the dead--above all the 'placing' of the dead, in physical, spiritual and social terms--in order to reveal the social and religious outlook of past societies. The contributions range widely geographically, from Scotland to Transylvania, and address a spectrum of themes: attitudes towards the corpse, patterns of burial, forms of commemoration, the treatment of dead infants, the nature of the afterlife, and ghosts.
