"Death, Burial and Rebirth in the Religions of Antiquity" charts the significance of death to the emerging religious cults in the pre-Christian and early Christian world. Jon Davies analyzes the varied burial rituals and examines the different notions of the afterlife. Several areas are covered including: "Osiris and Isis: the Life Theology of Ancient Egypt," burying the Jewish Dead and Christian burials. Jon Davies also draws on the sociological theory of Max Weber to present a comprehensive introduction to and overview of death, burial and the afterlife in the first Christian centuries which offers insights into the relationship between social change and attitudes to death and dying. Draws on a wide variety of data: ancient texts, archaeological findings, works of art and architecture Beautifully illustrated
