Book Description :

Inspired by a true story, Hannah Kent's Burial Rites was shortlisted for The Baileys Women's Prize for Fiction, The Guardian First Book Award and The International IMPAC Dublin Literary Awards. In northern Iceland, 1829, Agnes Magnúsdóttir is condemned to death for her part in the brutal murder of her lover. Agnes is sent to wait out her final months on the farm of district officer Jón Jónsson, his wife and their two daughters. Horrified to have a convicted murderer in their midst, the family avoid contact with Agnes. Only Tóti, the young assistant priest appointed Agnes’s spiritual guardian, is compelled to try to understand her. As the year progresses and the hardships of rural life force the household to work side by side, Agnes’s story begins to emerge and with it the family’s terrible realization that all is not as they had assumed. Based on actual events, Burial Rites is an astonishing and moving novel about the truths we claim to know and the ways in which we interpret what we’re told. In beautiful, cut-glass prose, Hannah Kent portrays Iceland’s formidable landscape, in which every day is a battle for survival, and asks, how can one woman hope to endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others? Burial Rites is perfect for fans of Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood and The Lifeboat by Charlotte Rogan.

Book Description :

This book has been written on the premise that the mode of coping with death of virtually all African ethnic communities has taken proportions and turns that are neither cultural, scriptural, nor necessary. Current rites are complicated, time-consuming, expensive, and are leaving most families and their neighbors impoverished. They have been extremely commercialized and a large number of Africans do not have resources to bury their dead the "modern" way. Were the Agikuyu (read: Africans) to curb numerous funeral demands which they deem necessary and "customary," when in actual fact they are not, funerals for them would become cheaper, faster, and simpler; would be decent enough for the dead; would take care of those left behind; and would be environmentally friendly. How Africans in the Diaspora, away from their ancestral homeland, should cope with death is also addressed. Also addressed is the issue of cremation. It is shown that at the resurrection, God will accord us new spiritual bodies which will have no bearing with the material substance of our earthly (mortal) bodies.

Old Norse Religion in Long term Perspectives

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

Book Description :

The study of Old Norse Religion is a truly multidisciplinary and international field of research. The rituals, myths and narratives of pre-Christian Scandinavia are investigated and interpreted by archaeologists, historians, art historians, historians of religion as well as scholars of literature, onomastics and Scandinavian studies. For obvious reasons, these studies belong to the main curricula in Scandinavia but are also carried out at many other universities in Europe, the United States and Australia a fact that is evident to any reader of this book. In order to bring this broad and varied field of research together, an international conference on Old Norse religion was held in Lund in June 2004. About two hundred delegates from more than fifteen countries took part. The intention was to gather researchers to encourage and improve scholarly exchange and dialogue, and Old Norse religion in long-term perspectives presents a selection of the proceedings from that conference. The 75 contributions elucidate topics such as worldview and cosmology, ritual and religious practice, myth and memory as well as the reception and present-day use of Old Norse religion. The main editors of this volume have directed the multidisciplinary research project Roads to Midgard since 2000. The project is based at Lund University and funded by the Bank of Sweden Tercentenary Foundation.

Language : En, Es, Fr & De

GET BOOK

Book Description :

Describing a great variety of funeral ritual from major world religions and from local traditions, this book shows how cultures not only cope with corpses but also create an added value for living through the encouragement of afterlife beliefs. The explosion of interest in death in recent years reflects the key theme of this book - the rhetoric of death - the way cultures use the most potent weapon of words to bring new power to life. This new edition is one third longer than the original with new material on the death of Jesus, the most theorized death ever which offers a useful case study for students. There is also empirical material from contemporary/recent events such as the death of Diana and an expanded section on theories of grief which will make the book more attractive to death counsellors.

Book Description :

Volume IV of the PRE-COLUMBIAN BURIAL RITES series consists of a comprehensive examination and discussion of specific mortuary behaviors and characteristics utilized by the prehistoric inhabitants of the Southeast Region of North America. The study of burial practice is useful to the discussion of the complexities of population traits because on a societal scale, similarity or differentiation of patterning in the disposal of the dead has been considered one of the basic identifying "signatures" used to distinguish cultural populations. Because burial of the dead is a ritually-oriented, ideologically-grounded rite of passage, its very nature is conservative, steeped in tradition and resistant to change. It is therefore possible, and vital, to identify repetitive characteristics of burial customs. For this purpose a mortuary sample of 34,132 individuals from 760 mortuary sites was utilized to address the range of variability and consistency within the seven state geographic space of the Southeast region. The states that comprise the database include: Alabama, Arkansas, Georgia, Kentucky, Louisiana, Mississippi, and Tennessee. Multiple cultural populations within those prehistoric territories exhibited ritually-oriented and conservative patterns of behavior that differentiated their society's practice of burial methodology from other extant groups. The ritual patterns also indicated that over long spans of prehistoric time, societal disruption occurred when cultures adapted to internally changing viewpoints and/or external pressures, sometimes exacerbated by changing climate and geographic environments that affected basic burial ideology over the long term. That cultural change was visible and evident within the altered burial pattern of the society and was meaningful not only for the identification of that group, but also exhibited evidence of contact and interaction with other cultures both intra- and inter-regionally, thereby providing comprehensive documentation for the cohesion of the four regions presented within the PRE-COLUMBIAN BURIAL RITES series.
