Download Preparing for Death, Remembering the Dead book PDF by Jon Øygarden Flæten and published by Vandenhoeck & Ruprecht. This book was released on 2015 with total page 378 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Death and dying were not in the main focus of the denominational conflicts of the 16th century. However, pious literature covered these topics again and again, not only before the Reformation, but after it as well. This volume contains papers presented at the Second RefoRC Conference in Oslo in 2012, and is characterized by a multiconfessional and multidisciplinary approach, with contributions from Church History, Art History, Archaeology, History of Literature and Cultural History. Within a field of research dominated by specialized contributions, the broad approach of this volume may further stimulate to comparative and cross-confessional reflection.
