Making sense of death

Ritual practices and situational beliefs of the recently bereaved in the Netherlands

Reihe: Death Studies. Nijmegen Studies in Thanatology, Band 5, 2017, broschiert, 328 Seiten

ISBN: 978-3-643-90867-4

This book on death rites and situational beliefs in the Netherlands offers valuable insight in the ways in which the recently bereaved make sense of a death. It shows how people seek and create meaning by reinventing ritual repertoires and by re-imagining afterlife beliefs. Attention is given to the changing role of religion, the co-creation of personalised funerals, and to innovation in cremation and remembrance practices. By demonstrating how people transform their relationship with the deceased through material practices, this study emphasises the widely-overlooked dynamics of continuing bonds.

Brenda Mathijssen is a postdoctoral researcher at the University of Reading (UK). She did her doctoral research at Radboud University in Nijmegen (The Netherlands), where she is affiliated to the Centre for Thanatology.
