The Northern World: North Europe and the Baltic c. 400-1700 AD. Peoples, Economies and Cultures; Volume 82


Historians examine how people in northern Europe applied common teaching in local circumstances to prepare for death during the medieval and early modern periods. They cover restless dead or peaceful cadavers: preparation for death and afterlife in medieval Iceland, Bishop William Wykeham of Winchester (1366-1404) and his preparations for death, the authority of deathbed confessions in medieval and early modern Swedish law, the concern for salvation in the cities of Lesser Poland in the 16th century, death with an agenda: preparing for an aristocratic death in Reformation Sweden, dying unprepared in early modern Swedish funeral sermons, and scriptural preparations for suicide in early modern Sweden.
