Workshop: Funerary Culture in the Medieval and Early Modern Netherlands

Date 27-28 January 2011
Location Amsterdam
Organization V. Bonenkampová (VUA) and K.Goudriaan (VUA)
Language Dutch

Funerary ritual in the Netherlands during the medieval and early modern period has not been studied very much. In the past decade, however, liturgical commemoration and funerary ritual as an important aspect of it, have gained in importance as a subject of investigation. In the same period, urban archaeology resulted in a series of important discoveries. Researchers from different disciplines within the humanities, such as historians, art historians, archaeologists, genealogists and anthropologists, are attracted by a great variety of sources, both written texts and objects and material remains.

The aim of this workshop is to bring together researchers from these different disciplines to explore and debate their common ground, viz. medieval and early modern funerary ritual. Questions to be discussed may be the following: Which correspondence (or lack of it) exists between the treatment of the dead body and the religious convictions that influence sepulchral habits? In this respect, does the Reformation cause a break? What about remembering and its opposite, forgetting? In which measure and in what ways is sepulchral culture serving as expression of social stratification and of group and individual identities?

From the participants a contribution of € 20.- will be asked in order to meet the costs of lunch and drinks.

Registration for this workshop can be done by sending an e-mail to Viera Bonenkampová (see MMR 6, page 13).
