Drawing Death into Life. Comparative Perspectives of Protestant Ways in Coping with Death between Desacralization and Resacralization, 1580–1700
"To die peacefully" – This project follows the origins of this ideal and examines how death and dying were present in the daily lives of the people in Early Modern Europe. On the one hand, it investigates the emotional norms that death and dying evoked. On the other hand, it lays a focus on the ethical implications it entails.
The Leibniz research association "The Value of the Past" started its work on September 1, 2021 and over the next four years will investigate the significance of the past for societies in the past and present.
