Summary
"Simultaneously real and unreal, the dead are people, yet they are not. In Afterlives, Nancy Mandeville Caciola explores the extraordinary phenomenon of the living's relationship with the dead in Europe during the five hundred years after the year 1000. Caciola considers both Christian and pagan beliefs, showing how certain traditions survived and evolved over time, and how attitudes both diverged and overlapped through different contexts and social strata."--Provided by publisher
