Book Description :

*Soon to be a major motion picture starring Jennifer Lawrence* A brilliant literary debut, inspired by a true story: the final days of a young woman accused of murder in Iceland in 1829. Set against Iceland's stark landscape, Hannah Kent brings to vivid life the story of Agnes, who, charged with the brutal murder of her former master, is sent to an isolated farm to await execution. Horrified at the prospect of housing a convicted murderer, the family at first avoids Agnes. Only Tóti, a priest Agnes has mysteriously chosen to be her spiritual guardian, seeks to understand her. But as Agnes's death looms, the farmer's wife and their daughters learn there is another side to the sensational story they've heard. Riveting and rich with lyricism, BURIAL RITES evokes a dramatic existence in a distant time and place, and asks the question, how can one woman hope to endure when her life depends upon the stories told by others?

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 :

Over the last few decades, the Tiv culture of death and burial have experienced radical changes due to the confrontation of indigenous religion with western education, modernization and cultural borrowing from Tiv neighbouring ethnic groups and some of the "local communities" are among those that are visited during death and burial ceremonies. This cultural integration infiltrated Tiv culture, customs and traditions, especially death and burial rites. It also influenced the process of religious changes as a point of department from the pre-colonial practices. Today, death and burial ceremonies have become festivities and occasions for the bereaved to display wealth. The material mode of production which is capital-oriented and the desire for material gains have led the Tiv to become exploitative, especially to sons-in-law as regards death and burial rites. It also led to drastic shift in the roles that were performed by male children to female children in modern Tiv society. This made the Tiv to abandon the traditional practices of death for Christian-oriented ones. This research therefore, provides a new metric as supplemental for traditional practices of death.

Book Description :

Death, Ritual and Belief, now in its third edition, explores many important issues related to death and dying, from a religious studies perspective, including anthropology and sociology. Using the motif of 'words against death' it depicts human responses to grief by surveying the many ways in which people have not let death have the last word, not simply in terms of funeral rites but also in memorials, graves, and in ideas of ancestors, souls, gods, reincarnation and resurrection, whether in the great religious traditions of the world or in more local customs. He also examines bereavement and grief, experiences of the presence of dead, near-death experiences, pet-death and the symbolic death played out in religious rites. Updated chapters have taken into account new research and include additional topics in this new edition, notably assisted dying, terrorism, green burial, material culture, death online, and the emergence of Death Studies as a distinctive field. Case studies range from Anders Breivik in Norway, to the Princess of Wales, and to the Rapture in the USA. A new perspective is also brought to his account of grief theories. Providing an introduction to key authors and authorities on death beliefs, bereavement, grief and ritual-symbolism, Death, Ritual and Belief is an authoritative guide to the perspectives of major religious and secular worldviews.

Book Description :

This thesis aims at understanding Bukusu death and burial rites in Bungoma and Kimilili, Western Kenya. The research was carried out among Bukusu in general, with a particular attention to Bukusu Quakers of different gender, age categories, married and single. The study explored traditional death and burial rites as practiced by Ababukusu today in relation to Christian funeral rites. Cultural diversity and exposure to practices of neighboring ethnic groups, and to Christianity, have played an important role in the evolution of traditional death rites. Those who become Christians usually adopt the Christian burial rite and abandon the complicated traditional rituals. Africans yearning for modernization have often found themselves at crossroads when choosing which death rites to follow. The study has revealed that Bukusu Quakers of Western Kenya continue to perform traditional death and burial rites because they believe that if they do not perform rites of purification, the spirit of the deceased will harm them. Examination of traditional ritual process and Christian funeral rites reveals that Bukusu Christians live with combination of fears: of misfortunes from ancestors, and of rejection by the Christian community. Because they feel that the Christian funeral rites lack important elements, they are forced to integrate traditional and Christian rites. Thus emerges the behavior pattern of "Christian by day, African by night." Church leaders have become more concerned with issues of death and burial rites, and some still hold onto the early missionary prejudices that African traditional rites of passage are evil and demonic. The research, therefore, suggests the necessity of an inculturation process among Bukusu of Western Kenya Province in their interactions with Christianity. Traditional death and burial rites among Bukusu cry out to be preserved for the sake of family welfare and safety. Many traditional rituals and practices have value because they bind people together; however, those that engage people in immorality or lead to financial ruin need not to be preserved. Changes in the traditional funeral rites are inevitable and to be expected. Community members ought not to ignore and reject those which are compatible with modernity and Christianity. The study concludes that a dialogue is needed between African traditional religion and Christianity in order to create an environment which allows people to continue with their cultural practices insofar as they are compatible with Christianity. This thesis recommends the establishment of competent family ministries in the various churches with qualified pastoral agents to help people as they move to other stages of their lives. Traditional rites of passage, especially funeral rites, with all their rich cultural backgrounds, should be utilized by churches to comfort the bereaved.

Book Description :

Abstract The discovery of infant burials on excavated domestic sites in Roman Britain is fairly common but in the past these burials have often been dismissed as a product of unceremonious disposal. There is a growing literature which considers the phenomenon, but it has been dominated by debates around the suggestion that these burials provide evidence for infanticide, with a focus on the osteological evidence for and against this hypothesis. There has been less systematic consideration of the archaeological context of such burials. In this paper we examine the excavated evidence of two large groups of such burials from sites in East Yorkshire which demonstrate that the burial of neonatal infants followed a careful age-specific funerary rite. We suggest that this conclusion further undermines the widespread assumption that infants were disposed of without ceremony and as a result of infanticide.

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.
