Death, the final and most powerful stage in a person's life. The everday concept of one dying has always been surrounded by superstition and tradition. The funerary rituals of the 19th century are some of the most interesting and, in a sense, loving of them all. They lead to the evolution of the celebration of death as we know it today.
