Description

This session features papers that examine features of death, dying, and the dead in the early Middle Ages from a range of disciplinary approaches, including medieval archaeology, literature, history, theology, and art history. The purpose of the session is to consider the physical aspects of death (e.g., funerary rituals and burial, the veneration or translation of bones), the theological or social concerns about the bodies of the dead, the literary or artistic representations of dying and death, and the commemorative practices that continued to connect the worlds of the living and the dead.
