Drawing on a cross-section of evidence—excavated cemeteries, sculpture and funerary monuments, documentary sources, and iconography—and using a series of regional case studies, this book explores the changing attitudes to death and the commemoration of the dead during the medieval period. The book addresses a number of themes, including the changing location of burial, the evidence for burial rite and funerals, the great wealth of funerary monuments and other forms of ecclesiastical patronage, the nature of the funerary industry, and the relationship of the dead to the living community.
