Workshop on Mortuary Ritual


The REECR is co-hosting a two-day workshop on mortuary ritual in Helsinki on Thursday October 27-Friday October 28.

The workshop is a cross-disciplinary gathering, where scholars working within the fields of archaeology, religious studies and biblical studies will meet and discuss aspects of mortuary ritual practices, such as funerary rituals, mourning rituals, ancestor worship and other kinds of ritual behavior related to the tomb of the deceased such as habitual visits or what one could call the care and feeding of the dead.

The workshop is organized and funded in collaboration with the Centre of Excellence Changes in Sacred Texts and Traditions (CSTT).
