Riassunto: This book richly explicates a relatively new scholarly awareness of the wealth of ethnographic and historical materials concerning death, and of the possibilities involved in exploring the religious perspectives reflected in such materials. Insights are presented into many of the ways in which humans in various parts of the world have encountered death, come to terms with it, and -- in some sense -- transcended it.Following a general introduction to the psychological, linguistic, literary, artistic, and religious aspects of confrontation with death, there are two major chapters on mythic and sacramental responses, by Mircea Eliade and Victor Turner. These are followed by explorations into individual and communal encounters with death in a variety of traditions: Aztec, Muslim, Zoroatrian, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Bugandan, and Christian. Changes in these traditions are discussed, with attention to the impact of such events as the Nazi Holocaust and American Presidential assassinations.

L'autore: Frank E. Reynolds is co-author of Two Wheels of Dhamma and co-editor of The Biographical Process: Essays in the History and Psychology of Religion. He teaches Buddhist Studies at Chicago and has been Evans-Wentz Lecturer at Stanford. Earle H. Waugh, who teaches Religious Studies at Alberta, holds degrees from McMaster and Chicago. He wrote 'Muhammad as Model in the Sufi Tradition' for The Biographical Process, and is project director for a film series on religious diversity.
