Death Comes for All
This chapter investigates the social and religious understanding of death in England during the 16th and 17th centuries. It analyses the issue from theological and liturgical perspective and as a secular social activity. It covers several death ritual topics including the separation of body and soul, the conflict between the traditional and reformist modes of burial, the handling of the mortal body, and the evaluation of the disposition of the soul.
