This chapter examines two areas of practice to illustrate how Ulster Presbyterians perceived both life and death. Section one deals with wakes, their social character, the various popular beliefs that surrounded death, and the efforts of the Presbyterian authorities to reform perceived abuses. Section two examines the rituals of the deathbed, specifically the differences and shared experiences of evangelical and liberal Presbyterians as they attempted to ‘die well’.

Keywords:   death, wakes, funerals, deathbed, alternative beliefs, evangelicalism, assurance
